The Avaloq Core Platform will improve the user experience for BCA’s wealth management business,’ as reported by The Asset.

Its core banking platform and wealth management technology are delivered through Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and on-premises models, while its Business Process-as-a-Service (BPaaS) reportedly improves back-office efficiency with a high degree of automation.

Fintech is reportedly booming in Southeast Asia (SEA). Investments in the region more than tripled to hit USD 3.5 billion in the first nine months of 2021, compared to USD 1.1 billion for all of 2020. The trending fintech categories are digital payments and digital lending. In 2021, the digital payments segment received funding of USD 1.9 billion, a 244% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from USD 562 million in 2020. Digital lending also noticed a 78% CAGR to USD 314 million. In 2022, while tech companies all over the world grapple with a funding winter, fintech companies in SEA are continuing to raise huge capital, as reported by KrAsia.
