M&I Investment Management Corp. to Deploy Macgregor System for Equity, Fixed Income Trade Order Management Across Six Offices

Includes Development of Macgregor Link to Metavante Trust Accounting System

October 21, 2002 – BOSTON – Macgregor™, a global provider of buy-side trade order management systems (OMS) and FIX network services, today announced that M&I Investment Management Corp. and Marshall & Ilsley Trust Company N.A. (M&I) have selected the Macgregor Financial Trading Platform™ (MFTP™) to automate equity and fixed income trading. M&I selected the Portfolio Manager Workstation, Advanced Fixed Income, Compliance, and the Macgregor FIX Network (MFN) components, and will roll the system out to all users in six offices.

MFTP will be linked to M&I’s trust accounting system by a new interface to be developed through a joint effort between Macgregor and the trust accounting system provider, Metavante Corporation (Metavante). Metavante is the wholly owned financial technology subsidiary of Marshall & Ilsley Corporation, and a sister company to Marshall & Ilsley Trust Company. Upon completion of the project, joint clients of Metavante and Macgregor may use the interface.

David W. Schulz, President of M&I Investment Management Corp., stated, "We were looking for a scalable system with robust portfolio management tools and complete asset coverage because we wanted to automate both our equity and fixed income trading on the same platform. Macgregor provides all of that along with a fully integrated FIX network that gives you plug & play access to the sell-side. The complete package was compelling."

Steve Levy, President and CEO, Macgregor, commented, "We’re delighted that M&I has chosen Macgregor to help them move to a fully automated trading environment. And by working with Metavante to build an interface to our OMS, we will be able to deliver a true straight-through processing experience for M&I as well as other mutual clients who specialize in trust services."

Norrie Daroga, senior vice president and general manager, Metavante Wealth Management, stated, "A marketable production link between our trust accounting system and Macgregor’s OMS will help our mutual clients reap the benefits of a fully automated and integrated workflow."
