With Kaleido Private Bank, InCore Bank and SOBACO have gained an additional customer. The integration of the Zurich private bank is carried out as part of a full outsourcing: Based on Finnova’s banking software, the two banks offer technical and banking services from a single source.
Having previously limited outsourcing to software and its operation, Kaleido Private Bank has now opted for full outsourcing. Thanks to the merger of IT and business, the Swiss private bank has a complete range of bank- and order-specific end-to-end processes at its disposal for handling its banking transactions. With this private bank, another member joins the largest private banking hub based on Finnova Banking Software.
The long-term experience of InCore Bank and SOBACO also becomes evident in the implementation time: Only six months after the start of the project, Kaleido Private Bank goes live on the platform of InCore Bank and SOBACO.
“I am very happy to welcome Kaleido Private Bank Ltd. to our client community. It is a great pleasure to experience the drive of this dynamic bank. The company completely reinvented and realigned itself within half a year. This process usually takes several years, but Kaleido managed it within a few months.” – Mark Dambacher, CEO of InCore Bank
Rising demand for full outsourcing
As of July 5, 2021, Kaleido Private Bank is handing over business process execution and transaction banking to InCore Bank and SOBACO. This enables the Swiss private bank the often cited focus on its core business. With regard to smaller or mid-sized private and universal banks, InCore Bank and SOBACO observe a continuing increas in demand for integrated technical and banking platforms in general as well as for crypto, blockchain and digital assets solutions in particular.
Although the range of services in Switzerland is at a very high level in terms of choice and quality, integrated solutions as a one-stop shop remain an exception.
“InCore Bank and SOBACO offer the full range of services. We recognized the development towards
full outsourcing early on and played a leading role in shaping it. The partnership with Kaleido Private Bank is the next proof that we are on the right path into the future – our next milestone will be Bank as a Service.” – Peter Haist, president of the board of directors of InCore Bank AG and CEO of SOBACO Solutions AG
The fact that customized full outsourcing plays a central role in the transformation of a bank from a traditional manufacturer to a pure consultant is also confirmed by Gian Nay.
“Efficient processes are essential for us as bankers. However, we realize the difference in favor of our clients on the front end, with the way we advise and accompany them. Full outsourcing with InCore Bank and SOBACO allows us to focus on exactly what we do best – building long-term relationships with our clients based on transparency, trust and discretion.” – Gian Nay, COO of Kaleido
Complete outsourcing of IT and business to external service providers is thus playing an increasingly important role not only for individual financial institutions, but also for the entire financial sector and the financial center.
