Societe Generale picks Azqore for information systems and back office

By Patrick Brusnahan

Societe Generale has selected Azqore, a part of Indosuez Wealth Management, to manage IT systems and back office operations outside of France.

Azqore is set to provide these solutions to Societe Generale Private Banking in Luxembourg, Monaco, and Switzerland. In addition, it will aid Kleinwort Hambros in London.

As a result, Azqore should enable Societe Generale Private Banking and its clients to benefit from enhanced operations processions and digitalised services. This is also backed by a shared platform that improves user experience and competitiveness.

The entire process is set to take place in a number of stages over several years starting from 2022.

“In a profession facing major transformations and an increasingly demanding environment, this agreement will enable us to offer our clients enhanced services while improving the performance of our international private banking business model. By leveraging the knowledge and technological expertise of Azqore, we will focus entirely on managing our long-term relationships with our clients which is our core role as private bankers,” said Patrick Folléa, head of Societe Generale Private Banking.

“This agreement aligns with Crédit Agricole Group’s strategy to pool its industrial platforms with prestigious partners in the finance sector. It also furthers the goal of Indosuez Wealth Management and Capgemini, as shareholders of Azqore, to develop an industry-leading provider of IT and banking outsourcing services for wealth management. The Azqore strategy is further strengthened in the current climate as speeding up the digital transformation is becoming a priority for everyone,” added Jacques Prost, chairman of Azqore and Group CEO of Indosuez Wealth Management.

“Our unique technology platform, which comprises a “Core Banking” supplemented with leading software from the world of wealth management, thanks to one of the most robust fintech ecosystems, will respond to the future uses of private bankers and their clients. The operational efficiency and diversification of services that underpin this agreement will contribute to improving the value proposition and success of the digital transformation in private banking. It will also enable Azqore to strengthen its presence and its array  of services in Europe, starting with Luxembourg where it plans to open offices soon, followed by the United Kingdom,” concluded Pierre Dulon, CEO of Azqore
