Avaloq was founded to provide a comprehensive core banking platform, Avaloq Banking Suite, to the banking industry. The platform, designed initially for the Swiss market, has wealth and investment management capabilities. Avaloq uses its own banking platform with all its clients. The platform was initially written in the mid-1990s, and is updated semiannually. In 2011, Avaloq expanded its services into BPS by acquiring a 51% stake in B-Source, a BPS provider founded in 1995 and offering services exclusively on the Avaloq software. In 2016, Avaloq acquired 100% ownership in B-Source, which was then rebranded Avaloq Sourcing Switzerland and Liechtenstein. Today, the group also owns two BPS centers in Germany and Singapore. There is a fourth center in Switzerland, which is a joint-venture between Avaloq and Raiffeisen (the third largest bank in Switzerland consisting of ~250 community banks) which provides BPS to the Raiffeisen members. Avaloq will acquire full ownership of this center in 2019.

Five years ago, Avaloq extended its offering to include omnichannel functionality spanning PC and mobile devices. Today, it has a strong focus on creating an open platform to support third-party, as well as its own, development. This has been supported through architectural changes to the Avaloq platform to enable external development, and through the creation of a set of standard REST APIs to ease integration (e.g. of third-party Fintech components). Today, Avaloq has partnerships with ~90 external software vendors to extend the scope of capabilities of its platform. All of its clients use some or all the FinTech functionality available on its platform.
