AFA Systems plc, the LSE listed provider of software to the global financial markets, has launched a new integrated treasury and capital markets system, Musketeer Plus and a new range of Investment Management solutions. Musketeer Plus is a new generation integrated treasury and capital markets system that provides advanced pricing analytics developed through AFA Systems’ experience with their highly respected DART pricing and Risk Management software. Now, in a single, real-time, modern application, financial institutions can benefit from Musketeer Plus’ greatly enhanced STP power that facilitates, from a single point-of-entry, price discovery through settlement and accounting across a broad spectrum of instruments and markets.
AFA Systems’ new software for the Investment Management market builds on the excellent software developed in Southern Africa by recently acquired Smacsoft Group. The AIMS suite covers both Front and Back Office requirements and there is a unique unitised multi-fund Managers application, Interlink and a CRM for financial Markets solution as well as a web based Client Reporting system.
Mike Hart, Chairman and Chief Executive of AFA Systems plc, commenting at the launch said:
“We are very proud of our new system, Musketeer Plus which utilises the latest technology to build on the proven strengths of its predecessor Musketeer and incorporates some valuable skills and techniques learnt from our DART systems. This development is very timely with the global launch of our new Investment Management software and our CRM and Client Reporting applications for the Financial Markets.”
