RBC Wealth Management in Asia is moving its platform to the cloud by implementing a software as a service (SaaS) model and modernising the platform with “innovative” front-office services, the firm said in a statement.

The project will be implemented with the support of Synpulse – an existing technology partner for both RBC WM and Avaloq.

“By moving our wealth management platform to the cloud, we are paving the way for further growth in the region. Avaloq’s SaaS solution will provide us with the necessary flexibility and scale to deliver our proven value proposition to the market,” Terence Chow, head of RBC WM in Asia, said in a statement.

As part of the project, RBC’s wealth management platform in Asia will be modernised with two new front-office services – relationship managers workplace and investment advisory. RBC WM is also

adopting Avaloq’s web and mobile products for clients of its Hong Kong business.

“By modernising the entire platform, RBC WM Asia is strengthening its digital capabilities which will have a positive impact on the client experience,” Gery Dachlan, managing director for South Asia & Australia at Avaloq, said in the statement.
