Misys plc (FTSE: MSY.L), the global application software and services company, today announces the launch of Misys Sophis VALUE 4.2. The latest version of its award-winning investment management solution significantly improves risk management capabilities, broadens asset class coverage and enhances operational efficiency for buy-side firms.
Investment managers will benefit from the new enhancements in the solution which have been developed as a result of market changes and customer feedback. VALUE 4.2 brings buy-side customers complete cross-asset class coverage through a single integrated investment platform. The new solution allows users to make more informed decisions about their portfolio and trades, allowing firms to enhance overall performance.
"We have worked very closely with our customers to continue to develop the solution and to improve operational performance and efficiency," states Sylvain Privat, Product Manager, Misys Sophis VALUE. "This solution enables investment managers to be in complete control of the risk exposure associated with their whole portfolio. The financial crisis has deeply changed the way investment companies are looking at risk and imminent regulations are about to define new standards for managing risks. In VALUE 4.2, enhancements on pre-trade risk control, liquidity risk management and real-time VaR calculation answer the increasing need for more risk measures, more control and more reporting."
Misys Sophis is the only technology provider to combine all the key elements into a single solution: Cross-Asset Coverage, Decision Support, Risk and Compliance Management, STP Operations Management and Performance Attribution. Investment managers can now control the risk and performance of their business more effectively and can access information in one place, simplifying reporting.
