The global investment firm Vontobel is strengthening its cooperation with Microsoft in order to deploy Azure Open AI Service at enterprise level in accordance with the applicable regulations – thus supporting its employees in their daily work through the use of AI.

Azure Open AI Service is expected to be deployed at Vontobel from fall 2023 to boost productivity in various business areas, such as programming, and to support the manual evaluation of free text or the analysis of data.

Based on its initial experience of deploying AI, Vontobel will carry out evaluations to determine other areas where Azure Open AI Service could be used to support the work of employees.

“We see the enormous potential of this ground-breaking technology and are excited and convinced of the opportunities it offers. Our focus is on increasing productivity, and we also plan to develop examples of how it can be applied to further enhance the hybrid client experience. The collaboration with Microsoft will allow us to further expand our leading position in the field of AI and will position Vontobel as an employer of choice for top talent,” stated François Rüf, Head Digital Investing, Vontobel.
