Headquartered in Frankfurt, Isbank spearheads its parent company’s international expansion plans, and promotes close commercial and other ties between Western Europe and Turkey.

Working closely with Swiss-headquartered Avaloq Banking System, a Surecomp partner, Isbank completed the implementation and went live with it’s the new core system in record time.
Understanding that trade finance is a key element in building strong international operations, and that the bank’s in-place manual system would not allow for the growth strategy envisaged by the bank, Isbank embarked on a comprehensive evaluation of currently available trade finance solutions. The bank sought an efficient, agile and responsive trade finance solution to meet the business challenges of its corporate clients.
“After a careful review of various competitive offerings, we selected Surecomp’s DOKA 5 solution.
