Misys, the leading provider of financial services software, has
launched Misys FusionRisk Limits to make it possible for financial institutions to see all
exposures, breaches and limit utilisation across their entire operations. Traders, treasurers
and corporate bankers can now act on complete and timely risk information.
FusionRisk Limits enables a significantly enhanced view of limits across trading and
commercial banking, so that banks can achieve full visibility of exposures, limit utilisation
and breaches, along with improved capital and funding consumption across the business.
Without this solution, traders and commercial bankers cannot draw exposures from multiple
systems to get a consistent picture of counterparties and customers. With FusionRisk Limits,
they can manage and control credit risk based on single view across multiple entities and
global sector and country views. including direct integration with multiple (Misys and third
party) trading and banking systems.
Axis Bank is an example of a bank that has benefitted from Misys FusionRisk capabilities.
Misys provides Axis Bank with an enterprise-wide market risk system capable of integrating
with multiple trading systems and consolidating all economic position information in a single
place. It offers the bank a good platform to meet its needs such as VaR, Global Limits and
compliance with internal model requirements.
“It is essential that all exposures are accurately tracked in a timely manner and stay within
the banks’ agreed tolerance levels at all times”, comments Boris Lipiainen, Global Head of
Product Management at Misys. “With FusionRisk Limits, risk managers, treasurers and 2
corporate bankers can now fully understand exposures across the business. While de-risking
their limit management operations, they can support pre-deal and strategic business
decisions with confidence. Our solution is able to connect to any in-house or third-party
software making it possible to compute and aggregate risk metrics from an individual trade
all the way up to board-level aggregation.”
Banks can now reduce risk buffers in the knowledge of their exposures, allowing for more
efficient utilisation of resources and higher returns on available capital. Any limits and
breaches that may exceed the organisation’s tolerance can now be reported at once. Risk
data aggregation and meaningful reporting are critically important to ensuring banks meet
BCBS 239 requirements, so Misys FusionRisk Limits allows banks to demonstrate
