LONDON – Misys, the global leader in financial services software, has been honoured with the overall winner in the enterprise-wide risk management, according to the 2014 Risk Technology Rankings.
The first place position underscores the ability of Misys to enable clients to respond to all regulatory compliance and reporting requirements. The company has been awarded first place in eight of the categories in this year’s rankings, including trading systems (Equities, Forex and Rates), enterprise-wide risk management and liquidity management, regulatory compliance and reporting, and for the first time in the area of risk data repositories and data management. Misys also won for the second year running the system support and implementation category, due to its proactive support and repeatable implementation and delivery methodologies for its clients.
The 2014 Risk Technology Rankings were announced as a result of several thousand subscribers of Risk Magazine being canvassed, including representatives of the leading banks and financial institutions, asset managers and hedge funds. The awards identify the best product offering based on functionality, usability, performance, return on investment and reliability in a wide range of categories covering all aspects of trading systems, pricing and analytics and risk management.
Misys FusionRisk has won several accolades as well as the “Best Use of Technology in Risk Management” last month. It provides its clients and the market-leading capabilities to meet regulatory requirements, including BCBS Rule 239.
