Misys, an application software and services company, has launched an enterprise market risk solution, Misys Risk, to enable financial institutions to measure, control and manage risk across multiple asset classes, instruments, portfolios and systems. The launch marks the first step in a multi-phase project to create a unified enterprise solution to address market, credit and liquidity risk in a single consistent framework.
Misys has developed a front-to-back enterprise market risk management system designed for risk managers at sell-side and buy-side institutions, incorporating analytics, drill-down capabilities, limit and alert management and reporting. Misys Risk provides a single platform to manage and control the risks associated with trading activity. Integrated with the trading systems it relies upon for portfolio valuation, Misys Risk shares the same positions, models, valuations and pricing data with the front-office. This provides the ability to easily drill down from an enterprise view of risk through to the trading desk level. It also ensures that relevant data is aggregated consistently, and that new pricing models can be introduced quickly. As a result, the time delays associated with capturing the risk exposure of new products is reduced, allowing firms to capitalise on new business opportunities as they arise.
Michele Bonollo, head of IT, risk management at Banco Popolare, said: “Misys enabled us to implement a Basel 2.5 component for IRC in a very short timeframe without needing to disrupt our entire risk framework. The tight integration of the Misys Risk framework with Misys’ trading solution Sophis Risque enables us to capture all the risk sources in our portfolios, and to get new insights and risk figures easily.”
