Banque Internationale à Luxembourg Suisse SA (BIL Suisse) has entered into a contract with B-Source, Avaloq’s Swiss BPO centre, to outsource its banking processes. The bank chose B-Source’s comprehensive and pre-configured business process outsourcing (BPO) solution based on the Avaloq Banking Suite.

We are delighted to be working with such a competent partner moving forward”, said Thierry de Loriol, CEO of BIL Suisse.
“With our BPO solution we can make a crucial contribution to BIL Suisse’s growth strategy”, commented Francisco Fernandez, CEO of Avaloq. “By fully industrialising their back office processes, more emphasis can be placed on the core business of providing clients at all times with the best possible service. I am greatly looking forward to the partnership with Luxembourg’s oldest private bank and supporting its Swiss subsidiary.”
