GENEVA, Switzerland – MACRH 12, 2024 – Temenos (SIX: TEMN) today announced that Metropolitan Bank & Trust Co. (Metrobank), one of the Philippines’ largest banks, has partnered with Temenos and Collaboration Betters the World (CBTW) to implement Temenos Wealth, strengthening the bank’s dominant position in the highly competitive wealth management industry.

This move further cements Metrobank’s mark as the preferred partner for High Net Worth and Ultra High Net Worth clients. Known for its dynamic and holistic approach towards wealth management, Metrobank has been recognized as best in class and was recently awarded by Asiamoney as 2023 Best Domestic Private Bank in the Philippines for the second consecutive year and named as the Best Bank for the Ultra-High-Net-Worth clients.

With Temenos Wealth, Metrobank gains access to the latest Temenos digital banking capabilities such as wealth analytics with embedded responsible AI, digital onboarding capabilities and self-service functionality, including robo-advisory and goal-based planning. Metrobank also benefits from Temenos’ advanced technology platform and composable API-driven architecture to easily extend and integrate the solution with existing and third-party applications, helping to reduce cost and risk while increasing business agility.

Developed specifically for advisors and portfolio managers, Temenos Wealth gives Metrobank a central view of important client information and will power portfolio management at scale, with increased productivity by automating investments, order generation, and compliance checks. This includes, for example, the ability to enforce automated workflows for client facing units to ensure that proper controls are carried out and are logged as part of an audit trail.

The Temenos solution will be implemented by Temenos Delivery Partner, CBTW – a global company creating and delivering tech and business solutions. Temenos is an established global player in the wealth management space.

Fernand Antonio Tansingco, Financial Markets Sector Head, Metrobank, said:
