Switzerland-based payments technology firm BPC has opened an office in Pakistan to serve the growing financial services market in the Middle East.
The office location is Karachi, the country’s largest metropole and financial centre. The BPC team, with global and local staff, covers the need for innovative payments solutions while taking advantage of the rich and growing pool of finance and technology talent available in the country. The team will service the existing clients in Pakistan locally but will also support projects elsewhere so global clients can benefit from the team’s excellent skills and superb work ethics.
With BPC’s technology solutions, the company’s Pakistan clients will be able to let their customers benefit from the emerging financial services possibilities and also include consumers that are not fully connected to the banking system yet. BPC typically co-creates integrated solutions with its clients that help an entire local ecosystem thrive.
Angelo Bertini, Managing Director at BPC says: “The growth of the financial services market, the abundance of tech talent and the high ambitions of our local partners, are proving the true potential of the Pakistan market. We look forward to seeing our solutions be of importance in opening up financial services to a growing number of inhabitants.” The new location in Pakistan adds as the 20th presence of BPC worldwide. This local presence has enabled BPC to build successful partnerships with financial institutions. BPC will continue to serve its clients in Pakistan with a global team, but will also recruit local talent enabling them to work with global products and enhance their skill sets in this highly dynamic environment.
