“Our ultimate goal is to maximize returns for our private and institutional customers, today and in the future. All actions we take to enhance internal operational efficiency contribute towards achieving this goal”, he added.
TradeTech Consulting has been selected by some of Europe’s largest corporations as outsourcing partner to manage business support of their financial systems in whole or in part.
“Outsourcing of financial systems business support is gaining popularity across Europe”, said Joakim Wiener, CEO, TradeTech Consulting. “Services in demand include: core banking systems support services, banking software maintenance services, server support services, as well as backup and network services. By outsourcing the management of financial systems, organizations are able to streamline business operations, reduce operational risk, and drive better internal focus on their core competencies.”
