Azqore - the new name for Crédit Agricole Private Banking Services

Indosuez Wealth Management is launching Azqore as an independent subsidiary to meet the needs of a transforming private banking market.

CA-PBS has more than 25 years’ experience at the heart of private banking in Switzerland. Today - the business has clients in 11 countries, served from three locations (Geneva, Lausanne and Singapore) with CHF 150 billion in Assets Under Management, up 30 per cent in the last 2 years.  

Through its proprietary S2i platform, CA-PBS has offered a wide range of services, including integrated technology services, operational back office and project consultancy. Banking clients can choose between two S2i solutions: either by outsourcing their back office to Azqore experts (BPO); or with their own in-house teams using S2i as Software as a Service (SaaS).  

Azqore was created to capture international market opportunities, emphasise strategic advantages and deliver growth, with a brand strategy to support the achievement of corporate goals: accelerated improved service quality; digital development; increased international presence; and focus on S2i’s open banking platform.  

Nucleus worked closely with Indosuez Wealth Management and Crédit Agricole Private Banking leadership to define and design the new value proposition, ‘partners for tomorrow’s wealth managers’; a new name protectable in international markets; and a distinctive brand identity system, including an updated brand for S2i.

Azqore CEO, Pierre Dulon, explains “Our new name expresses what makes Azqore unique in the market. It reflects the comprehensive nature of our solutions – the A-Z of banking, while also referencing our integrated S2i ‘Qore’ platform, which is at the heart of our clients’ processes.”

Peter Matthews, Nucleus’ CEO, who led the project, added “We designed the name and the brand identity to present the newly independent business as a digital transformation partner for banks. The name, brand mark, typography and colours are all deliberately precise, contemporary and highly distinctive with imagery that suggests Azqore’s ‘core’ bank platform solutions.”
