Misys has topped the Asia Risk Technology Rankings 2016 for overall trading systems. The number one spot reflects the superior, flexible and agile capabilities of Misys FusionCapital and the competitive edge it delivers to users.
“Topping the list for trading systems is an exciting achievement that highlights our commitment to providing treasury and capital markets customers with top quality solutions that lend themselves to phased transformation,” said Nadeem Syed, CEO at Misys. “With a long history in this sector, being recognised across seven categories in total is testament to our proven, and trusted, global offering.”
The Asia Risk annual technology rankings survey users of technology services at banks or financial institutions based in Asia. To reach the top spot, Misys was named in first place in four trading systems categories including equities, interest rates, credit and hybrids. It also came first in the equities and hybrids categories for derivatives pricing and risk analytics.
“Being recognised across all these areas demonstrates the strength of our solutions and the benefits we bring to financial institutions in APAC,” said Imad Abou Haidar, Managing Director, APAC at Misys. “This accolade stands us in good stead as we continue to expand our reach in sophisticated markets as well as in emerging ones. The breadth of the Misys suite allows us to offer the right solution for each market segment across treasury and capital markets, corporate banking and retail banking, as well as investment management.”
