More than 400 thought leaders and market experts gather at the European Market Forum to discuss challenges and opportunities the financial services industry faces
Misys, the global application software and services company, has honoured several of the financial services firms attending its annual European Market Forum in Budapest, Hungary, in recognition of their innovative approach. This year’s event – “Realising the Opportunity” – explored new growth opportunities amidst a very turbulent European backdrop.
The awards were given out in front of more than 400 financial services professionals, who had gathered at this year’s Misys European Market Forum, where the latest financial services industry trends were discussed and customers heard about the latest developments in the portfolio of products. Two specific awards were for innovation, including:
Capital Markets Innovation – BPCE. As one of the largest bank groups in France, BCPE decided to launch an ambitious program to harmonise and centralise the processes and systems for all its financial transactions. Using Misys Summit FT, the whole group is moving off its front-office and back-office systems and consolidating onto a single front-to-back STP platform.
Lifetime Achievement – ING. The team at ING has expanded its footprint across 44 countries in the equity derivatives and interest rate markets. Going forward, ING intends to replicate this model with their trade finance and lending business supported by our systems. Misys has been ING’s partner for more than two decades, supporting them with a broad range of solutions globally.
“We are extremely proud to work with such accomplished global financial services firms,” said Nadeem Syed, CEO of Misys. “Our clients and partners are some of the world’s leading and most innovative companies, with stellar track records. We look forward to continuing to be an instrumental part of their growth and development strategy.”
