Misys Wins "Best Buy Side Risk Management Initiative" In Asia Asset Management Awards

LONDON, March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Misys, the global application software and services company is pleased to announce it has won the award for "Best Buy Side Risk Management Initiative" for its Sophis VALUE solution from leading regional investment journal, Asia Asset Management (AAM).

The success marks the third consecutive year that Misys' flagship buy-side platform has been recognized as an industry leader by AAM's Best of the Best Awards and moreover, a back-to-back winner in their risk category, complementing Misys' recent Number One Ranking in the Risk Technology Survey. This industry recognition underlines its leadership position in this important space and follows the recent release of its risk-focused offering, Misys Global Risk (MGR), which launched in Hong Kong at the Asia Risk Congress in November last year.

AAM's Best of the Best Regional awards are designed to identify Asia's top performers from financial services companies and institutional investors, to service providers who have led the way in terms of innovation, service to clients and overall expertise in their field. Sophis VALUE has been selected by leading asset management firms in the region, including Nomura Asset Management. One of the main reasons for the platform's recent success is its ability to deliver fully integrated holistic risk management capabilities that enable investment managers to measure portfolio risk, carry out stress tests and perform VaR and liquidity risk calculations in real time and across multiple asset classes.

Misys will announce a new generation of investment management with the release of Sophis VALUE v5 later this year, which will provide users with a modern and updated interface to improve the usability of the system, as well as the addition of several key modules to improve functionality and asset class coverage. Several enhancements for pre-trade risk control, liquidity risk management and investment accounting in the front-office have also been added to answer the increasing need for further risk measures and analytics, stricter controls and accurate reporting among investment management firms.
