Misys named as overall winner in enterprise-wide risk management as well as seven other categories in the 2013 Risk Technology Rankings

Trading and Risk leadership position of Misys underscored by wide-ranging awards

Misys, the global leader in financial services software, has won more accolades to emphasise its leading position in enterprise risk management. The company has been awarded first place in eight of the categories in this year’s Risk Magazine Technology Rankings.

Misys was announced as the overall winner for enterprise-wide risk management for its leading capabilities and services to clients in the areas of market, credit, counterparty, and liquidity risk, aggregation and Basel III compliance. Top positions in the industry were also given to Misys for the value it brings in: Trading Systems (Equities, Forex and Rates); Pricing and Analytics (Equities); Liquidity Risk Management; Regulatory Compliance and Reporting; and System Support & Implementation.

The 2013 Risk Technology Rankings were compiled from the votes of several thousand subscribers of Risk Magazine and from financial institutions, including banks, 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.

In the last year Misys has seen significant traction in its Misys Global Risk (MGR) solution and this is the latest in a series of awards that MGR has won for enterprise risk management, including Asia Risk and FSTech. Additionally, the company has been named in the leaders’ category in Chartis RiskTech Quadrants® for Basel III and Data Management & BI, and for Enterprise Collateral Management.
