Avaloq, headquartered in Zurich, is set to employ at least 75 Scottish graduates. Their decision to set up a software development centre in Edinburgh was anounced in the BBC news today. Edinburgh came top due to the wealth of potential graduate talent and the quality of excellent degrees in software engineering available in Scotland.
