ARIZON Sourcing AG was founded with the goal of building the most innovative retail banking platform in Switzerland for the Raiffeisen Group. In the process, we are creating a unique, integrated digital and physical client experience which merges all channels onto one platform. ARIZON Sourcing AG is a joint venture of Raiffeisen and Avaloq and has been in operation since January 1st, 2015.
Our very name reflects our core values. ARIZON is a combination of the words “arise” and “horizon”: terms that stand for forward thinking and innovation. Incidentally, the letters A and R also represent our parent companies: Avaloq, the leading international provider of integrated and comprehensive banking solutions, and Raiffeisen, the leading Swiss retail bank.
ARIZON has been given the mandate to migrate all Raiffeisen banks to the new platform by the beginning of 2018. Concurrently, we have taken over operational responsibility for all back office administration processes, such as payments, securities, central bank functions and trust administration. We employ around 280 people at two locations in Switzerland.
ARIZON is building the best and most modern retail banking platform in Switzerland. We are thus creating a unique, integrated digital and physical customer experience which merges all channels onto one platform. The ARIZON culture is characterized by the spirit of innovation – inspired by the wishes and needs of our customers.
The ARIZON platform is fastidiously kept up to date and is responsive to new requirements. Back office administration services operate at the highest level – for example straight-through processing of payments or securities settlement and clearing. Moreover, Raiffeisen will be ensured a seamless migration to the new platform.
The new platform’s industrialized approach will help ARIZON to set new standards in transaction processing. The integrated front platform and multi-channel support enable our customers to better differentiate themselves in the marketplace. In addition, the modern platform architecture makes it possible to respond to new regulatory requirements and market trends faster and more cost-effectively.
We offer our customers a broad range of high-quality processing services
covering the following range of products:
– Payment execution
– Securities execution, settlement and clearing
– Client and tax reporting
– Printing, mailing and archiving.
Our services are backed by a professional second- and third-level customer support
as well as related application management services.
The following company’s of the Raiffeisen Group already entrust ARIZON with their back office administration:
The ARIZON Sourcing AG Executive Board has operational responsibility for the company’s day-to-day Business.
The Executive Board consists of the CEO and three other members as mandated by ARIZON’s Board of Directors, which comprises Rolf Olmesdahl (Chairman), Francisco Fernandez (Vice-Chairman), Patrik Gisel and Ronald Strässler.
The ARIZON team has the unique opportunity to be a part of the most exciting finance / IT initiative in Switzerland. ARIZON was consciously set up as an independent, “start-up like” organization to help us achieve our ambitious goal faster and more efficiently. We employ around 280 people and are always on the lookout for highly motivated and competent new employees. You can find information about our current openings under the category Career.
