San Francisco, 15 February 2005 - Calypso Technology, Inc. a leading provider of cross-asset front to back trading and trade processing systems, today announced the availability of the Calypso Risk Aggregator software module, which provides a consolidated view of risk exposure from multiple business areas.
Calypso Risk Aggregator provides a single view of exposure to risk, such as credit risk, interest rate risk and FX risk, from trading in all systems.
