BCGE makes digital strategy push
Banque Cantonale de Genève (BCGE) has strengthened its digital strategy with the acquisition of 3% stake in SwissSign Group, a digital identification IT company in Switzerland.
Blaise Goetschin, CEO of BCGE said: “This participation enables BCGE to affirm the presence of the cantonal banks in this major strategic project on a national scale. This also strengthens the shareholder base of SwissSign Group in French-speaking Switzerland.”
SwissSign’s goal is to create a single Swiss standard, which will enable the user to obtain a maximum degree of security of their personal data.
