Corporate Finance to feature in B.I.S.S. 2007 Corporate Actions Benchmarking

London, UK - 17 April 2007

B.I.S.S. Research, the exclusive research company offering a unique benchmarking of services and systems in the financial services sector, today announced that Corporate Finance will be included in the 2007 Benchmarking of Corporate Action systems.

Gary Wright, C.E.O., B.I.S.S. Research and creator of the B.I.S.S. business benchmarking concept said “Corporate Finance deals are normally the highest valued and have the greatest risk to those taking part. Often these deals are supported by a disparate array of systems and functionality that only come together once the deal hits the secondary market. There should be no reason why existing functionality supplied by the Corporate Actions vendor can not provide greater primary market support and reduce the risk of errors or worse the reputational risk of the Corporate Finance house. During my time working with Robert Fleming Corporate Finance on large deals like the Welcome floatation it became apparent that more systems integration was required between those organising the deal in corporate finance department and those settling transactions in the secondary market back office. Over the years of the B.I.S.S. Corporate Actions benchmarking we have built up a deep understanding of the vendors systems capability and feel certain that the vendors entering the 2007 B.I.S.S. Corporate Actions benchmarking will prove this to be true. We hope the result of this added benchmarking category will open up new marketing and sales opportunities to successful vendors and demonstrate to the corporate finance houses the huge benefit in investing in corporate actions software.”
