Banque Cantonale de Fribourg powers prosperity with secure global transactions
Established in 1892, Banque Cantonale de Fribourg is a Swiss universal bank with 28 offices (one a mobile bus) in the canton of Friboug. The bank provides a wide range of consumer, private and business financial services. The bank has over $16 billion Swiss francs in total assets and employs over 440 people.
Banque Cantonale de Fribourg was facing challenges with its end-of-life transaction processing system that could no longer keep pace with rising market volatility and tighter regulatory and risk compliance needs. The bank looked to offload complexity and rising infrastructure costs by adopting a cloud-based global transaction processing solution.
