Calypso Technology Inc, the leading provider of capital markets trading software solutions, today announced that the Calypso credit derivatives solution was voted the top trading system and front-to-back office system for credit in Risk Magazine's
2006 Technology Rankings.
"The biggest gains in this year's survey have been made by California-based Calypso Technology, Inc. Calypso has moved from 16th to sixth place in the overall results, with wins in credit trading and credit front-to-back office systems, and top-five finishes in nine other categories," noted Risk Magazine.
