Misys launches Capital Markets Fusion

RELATED TOPICS​

Misys has launched a trading systems offering named Misys Capital Markets Fusion, which protects and extends a bank’s existing technology infrastructure. The platform acts as a catalyst for business collaboration by bridging systems and increasing cross-business and cross-asset trading efficiencies.

Investment banks are often faced with multiple systems across their business lines while having to tackle consolidation and lower cost of ownership in the back office against an increasing regulation and risk burden. Misys Capital Markets Fusion solves the key challenges faced by banks by opening up any trading system to enable them to have a truly cross-business view of positions, P&L, risk and compliance and all back-office processing. 
 
Misys Capital Markets Fusion provides a new approach that bridges the silos in financial institutions and provides a business-wide horizontal layer that delivers global position management and collaboration across trading desks and consistent pricing and hedging across the business. Individual elements within the platform can quickly be integrated with any system without the need to “rip and replace” them. This incremental, manageable approach to systems enhancement and growth provides a fast return on investment.
 
“In today’s agile trading environment, all separately-run trading systems within a bank need to be automated across assets and across department workflows,” says Joerg Heidtmann, head of capital markets product management at Misys. “You have to have consistency in valuation, market data consumption and simulation and hedging, otherwise you will be basing your hedging strategy on inconsistent market data and figures coming from different pricing mechanisms and curves. Capital Markets Fusion is a complete environment for trading that provides a clear view of cross-asset trading while offering a stable platform for trading innovation and growth. It also provides aggregated pre-deal information in real time, which is essential to remain competitive in today’s trading environment.”
