Australia & New Zealand Banking Group Limited (ANZ) Drives Expansion Across Multiple Lending Sectors with Misys


–       ANZ pursues standardisation and a consistent global customer experience across its global wholesale lending businesses by selecting Misys Loan IQ

8 October 2013 – Australia & New Zealand Banking Group Limited, as part of its super regional strategy, is rolling out Misys Loan IQ throughout its global lending operations. In doing so, ANZ will deliver a core commercial loan management system to address the combined needs of the Commercial, Corporate and Institutional banking segments for wholesale lending. ANZ ultimately seeks to provide a consistent global customer experience, a set of standardised processes and better revenue management, ultimately reducing operational risk and underpinning regulatory compliance.

The Misys solution offers both robust workflows and feature-rich functionality, and will help ANZ to manage its company-wide lending business effectively from a single platform. In effect, it enables ANZ to consolidate operational processes across both its institutional and commercial lending businesses.           

“Misys was the clear choice in the technology selection process”, states Andrew Leithhead, Executive Director, Transformation Projects at ANZ. “We needed a partner that could support our systems consolidation initiative in order to fuel our super regional growth strategy. We selected Misys because of its rich, tried-and-tested and specialist financial services industry knowledge, rather than develop a system in-house or partner with other core system vendors in this instance.”

The bank looks to underpin future growth through the standardization and automation of its loan processing systems. Misys was the only software provider that presented a solution that was sufficiently robust, with a proven track record and specialist enough to truly support this. During the selection process, ANZ also called upon a number of other Misys’ clients to verify both solution functionality and reliability and the quality of the overall client-vendor relationship.

“We are pleased that ANZ has selected Misys as the technology partner of choice to support its international expansion,” adds Paul Spiteri, Global Sales Director for Lending at Misys. “It is clear that only Misys was able to provide both the depth and breadth of lending solution required to enable this global growth. We look forward to developing a strong partnership with ANZ and in sharing in their continued international success”.
