Alpian SA is a new Swiss digital bank that provides people with assets of between CHF 100,000 and 1 million with tailored private banking and wealth management services. To capture a share of this market, which is worth an estimated CHF 660 billion, Alpian chose Temenos Transact and Temenos Payments delivered as SaaS to enable short time-to-market and a highly efficient cost model. Alpian is taking advantage of localized, pre-configured functionality to develop an accessible, appealing banking app tailored to attract its target market. With plans to expand outside Switzerland into Europe, Alpian will benefit from the elastic scalability of the Temenos Banking Cloud to grow rapidly and cost-effectively.

Alpian has received a full banking license from the Swiss financial market supervisory authority (Finma). The Swiss bank will shortly launch its alpha release to internal employees and is set to offer its services to the public by Q3 2022.

“Alpian will introduce a new way for affluent clients to bank that is attuned to how they want to manage their wealth. Our approach is client-centric and driven by technology and innovation. With the Temenos Banking Cloud, we can focus our resources on delivering an exceptional service and experience for our customers. We have set an aggressive launch timeframe and the Temenos’ modern technology will enable us to achieve our goal and allow us the freedom to continue to innovate and differentiate our offering into the future.”
