Avaloq Group, a Switzerland-based developer of banking software solutions, has entered into a strategic partnership with India-based HCL Technologies for wealth management services.
Under the agreement, the two firms will establish an off-shore Centre of Excellence in Bangalore, India to offer flexible and scalable capabilities in implementation, systems integration, migration and testing on the Avaloq Banking Suite’s range of wealth management products.
