Mission Statement

TEMENOS Group AG provides integrated modular core banking systems to over 1000 financial institutions in more than 150 countries. We are headquartered in Geneva with 55 offices worldwide, and listed on the main segment of the SWX Swiss Exchange (TEMN).

Temenos software provides banks with a single, real-time view of the client across the enterprise, enabling banks to maximise returns while streamlining costs. We provide 24×7 functionality to the retail, wholesale, universal and private banking sectors; partner with central banks on core system replacement; and work with the World Bank on solutions for emerging markets. Temenos has a transparent approach to its operations and we bring to bear our experience, expertise, commitment and professionalism on every project.

Temenos’ only domain is banking software and our success is achieved by being completely focused on providing the best banking software available today. To this end, Temenos consistently devotes 20% of its revenues to research and development, higher than the average of our industry peers. This ensures that we can support banks with functionally rich systems that provide the flexibility to adapt to changes in business strategy or regulation.

History

Temenos was started in 1993 in Geneva, Switzerland. It was founded on the basis of a simple and compelling vision.

The banking industry was using outdated technology: systems built decades before which prevented meaningful improvements in efficiency, innovation, risk management and customer service.

Temenos’ view was that, if a software vendor could produce high quality banking software that was truly packaged and upgradable, banks would no longer have to rely on their home-grown systems.

Instead, banks would start to move to packaged software and the resulting economies of scale would mean that, before long, the provider would be able to invest more each year than the majority of banks could ever afford to invest in their own developments, accelerating the shift.

That vision has become a reality. Since its foundation, Temenos has recorded on average more than a 20% compound growth in revenues, reflecting the virtuous cycle that comes from leading the market and attracting the best talent. It has invested more than USD1bn in developing great banking products. It has grown its product set from core banking to payments, wealth management, business analytics and channels, offering a comprehensive solution set to meet the industry’s needs. It has developed the largest network of partners in the industry to enable it to scale delivery. And it has helped more than 1,200 banks from more than 150 countries to leave behind their legacy applications, including some of the world’s largest and best-known financial institutions.

Today, more than 450 million banking customers rely on Temenos software for their daily needs. And our success has also brought success for our customers. Our customers have been rendered more agile, able to offer more personalised products and services, to operate at lower unit costs, to react quicker to market opportunities and to manage risk better. As such, our customers enjoy much better operating metrics than their peers: on average, a 46% higher return on capital, a 30% higher return on assets and an 8.5 point lower cost to income ratio than banks still running legacy.

What has been the key to success so far and will underpin Temenos’ success in the future? Simple. Temenos is committed to building packaged software. To serving only one industry. To investing more than its peers on R&D. And because at Temenos we stick to the same principles of re-use, openness and technology agnosticism, we will continue to lead the industry with highest levels of innovation – making our products better, faster, easier to install, easier to use and easier to integrate with other systems. And, in so doing, we will continue to deliver the best levels of customer success in the industry.
