Šiaulių Bankas, a Lithuanian lender with over €4bn in assets, has selected Temenos to modernise its core banking platform. Šiaulių Bankas will migrate its retail and corporate banking including trade finance to Temenos Banking Cloud. The transition will support the bank’s growing business needs with increased flexibility and resilience.

The move to Temenos core banking software-as-a-service (SaaS) is part of a strategic transformation at Šiaulių Bankas. This follows the merger of its retail business with Invalda INVL.
