As part of its continuous internationalisation strategy and aim to extend its presence in demanding financial markets globally, Avaloq has opened an office in Australia end of last year. The expansion to a new continent for Avaloq comes after the company successfully established local offices in various regions in recent years.
“Opening an office in Australia is yet another important step in our internationalisation strategy and an additional milestone in Avaloq’s remarkable company history. Building up a local presence in the most demanding financial centres worldwide ensures that we are close to the markets and companies we work with. This allows us to cater towards our client’s needs and requirements without having to work around different time zones”, says a delighted Francisco Fernandez, CEO Avaloq. “The Australian market has immense potential, with demand for wealth management platforms increasing. Being present in Australia is the logical move for the company”, Fernandez continues.
