Asia Risk surveyed technology users in Asia to find the companies that provide the best products across a range of categories covering risk management, derivatives pricing and risk analytics, trading systems, and support services. Misys led the rankings in several categories including operational risk management, regulatory capital calculation and management, and equities trading systems.
Lee Boon Huat, Asia-Pacific managing director for Misys, commented, "We are delighted that our risk management, risk analytics and trading systems have once again been recognised by the region's key technology users. We have seen a steady increase in the take-up of our risk management and analytics solutions in the region and this ranking underlines the successes we have had."
This year has seen several important milestones for Misys. The acquisition of Sophis created Misys as the No.1 in Capital Markets with over 380 customers in Asia Pacific. The acquisition has resulted in a combined business that has the most comprehensive cross-asset and front to back-office coverage available in the market today.
So far this year Misys has seen strong growth in its Asia business and has won many new clients across the region, including Bank EXIM, Bank of East Asia, and CBIC. China, in particular, has seen considerable growth with Misys' 40 plus clients with significant wins in risk management including China Merchants Bank and Shanghai Pudong Development Bank.
