Philippines’ Metrobank partners with CBTW to transform its wealth management technology

Metrobank and CBTW are implementing Temenos Wealth to improve Metrobank’s operational efficiency, elevate the customer experience, and accelerate business growth.

MANILA, Philippines, March 11, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Collaboration Betters The World – CBTW, a global tech and business solutions company, announces its strategic partnership with Metrobank, one of the Philippines’ leading universal banks, to assist the Bank in transforming its wealth management technology. CBTW will support Metrobank in enhancing its wealth management services by implementing Temenos Wealth.

With Temenos Wealth, Metrobank gains access to the most complete solution available in the market. The Temenos solution includes wealth analytics with embedded responsible AI, digital onboarding capabilities and self-service functions including robo-advisory and goal-based planning. A key aspect of the selection of Temenos’ advanced technology platform was its composable API-driven architecture which enables extensibility and simple integration with existing third-party applications, helping to reduce cost and risk while increasing business agility.

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.
