“BlackRock and Avaloq joining forces will help clients reduce the complexity and friction inherent in many of today’s digital transformations. Our combined offering will make it extremely convenient for clients to implement and adopt Aladdin Wealth’s industry leading capabilities as it will be deeply integrated with Avaloq’s core banking solutions,” says Venu Krishnamurthy, Global Head of Aladdin Wealth Tech.

Wealth management clients in Europe and Asia will be able to access an integrated wealth tech platform, including: 

·       Digital portals

·       Client reporting, onboarding, and risk profiling tools

NEC looks forward to working with BlackRock to grow the Avaloq business.”
