Chile’s third-largest bank, Banco de Crédito e Inversiones (BCI), is well-established on its home turf and is now looking further afield for new opportunities. One of its newest ventures is launching a new corporate bank in Lima, Peru, offering superb digital banking experiences. BCI will use the Temenos Model Bank approach to accelerate the launch, built on Temenos core banking (Temenos Transact), payments (Temenos Payments), and digital front-office technology (Temenos Infinity). The solution will support cross-border payments, and built-in automation will help the bank maximize back-office efficiency. With help from Temenos, BCI is taking the next step in its growth strategy to expand its corporate customer base fast.

“We selected Temenos as our strategic technology partner to support us with our growing plan in Peru. Temenos’ advanced technology, scale and international expertise made them the ideal partner. We were also impressed with the company’s strong presence in Americas, as well as its ability to deliver fast implementations even in these times. BCI in Peru will benefit from embedded local best practices and we expect a smooth launch next year. By launching a new bank in Peru and using Temenos’ technology as our differentiator, we aspire to have a state-of-the-art bank for corporate banking in the region.”
