riskpro(tm) analysis database to be compliant with IBM DB2 as of 2006

Zurich, August 10, 2005 - IRIS integrated risk management ag announced today that as of next year, riskpro(tm)'s Global Analysis Database (GADB) will additionally support IBM DB2.

The riskpro(tm) GADB keeps a history of relevant input data and results of riskpro(tm) with the required granularity down to the individual contract. Time resolved data is efficiently stored and accessed using proven technologies and capabilities of a modern RDBMS.

The GADB, which runs on DBMS such as Oracle, will also be ported to IBM DB2 from Version 2.6 onwards.

The GADB will also offer improved liquidity risk analysis. It will allow to back-test expected liquidity against realized liquidity. Whenever a deal is settled, the expected cash flows are calculated based on the selected assumptions. In the course of time, the effective cash flows are registered forming the basis for back-testing.

Dr. Willi Brammertz, IRIS AG Managing Director, stated: "The foreseen compatibility of the GADB with the popular and widespread DB2 will better serve our existing and prospect clients."
