CALYPSO LAUNCHES ENHANCED FX MODULE TO PROVIDE COMPLETE AUTOMATION FROM CLIENT TO SETTLEMENT

- New module improves customer service in cost controlled environment
- Calypso provides one system for all FX trading and processing activity

Sibos - Atlanta, 11 October 2004 - Calypso Technology announces today that it has launched an enhanced version of its foreign exchange (FX) module. Calypso's FX system provides complete and seamless automation between bank customers, sales and trading desks, and the institution's back office. The system is built to increase a bank's profitability by providing effective sales management tools while lowering trading costs and reducing operational risk.

"With e-commerce initiatives driving down spreads in FX markets, banks are faced with the challenge of maintaining strong customer relationships to drive their business growth, while having to drastically reduce costs in their operations," says Charles Marston, CEO of Calypso.

Calypso's FX solution is a single system supporting client management, sales, multichannel pricing and deal capture, interbank trading and back office capabilities. A new web based client interface, WebFX, allows clients to enter trades via the internet. The system also provides connectivity to EBS, Reuters 3000, portals such as FX Connect, and liquidity providers. Other added features include customer service tools such as bulk entry and pricing of client trades and trade allocations.

Volume growth is supported downstream by Calypso's award winning back office. The highly scalable back office, in use at banks such as HSBC and Dresdner, is completely integrated with the sales and trading capabilities of the system. The solution supports numerous messaging standards and actively assists in reducing operational risk with its exception based workflow processing. The Calypso system ensures that as business grows, banks will have a modern robust platform to execute the volume of trades.

Marston comments, "Innovation in the FX markets has come in the form of distribution. Banks can drive more sales through the e-commerce channels now available. While multibank portals have specialized in client distribution and traditional vendors have focused on interbank trading, Calypso's approach is to streamline the entire process, by which crucial costs can be removed. We have looked at the FX business holistically and designed our system for automation with corresponding scalability."

The FX module enables FX and FX options to be traded in a single system and is part of Calypso's total, multi-asset solution, which consolidates all treasury, derivatives and securities products on a single technology platform.
