Misys releases Opics Compliance

08 October 2004  |  1176 views  |  0 Source: Misys Wholesale Banking Systems

Misys Wholesale Banking Systems (Misys) has developed a new application, Opics Compliance, which automates and centralises monitoring of the many limits and rules laid down by the regulators. It enables financial institutions to remove the need for manual intervention, speeds up compliance checks and reduces their operational risk.

Opics Compliance defines, manages and checks the vast array of rules, post-trade and positional limits and events which are present in an increasingly regulated global financial market. Operations managers are now able to define a wide range of limits using definition functions within the application without the need for technical knowledge or coding expertise.

"Existing systems on average only pick up 65% of the rules laid down by the regulators," comments Paula Rice, Head of Products for Treasury and Capital Markets at Misys Wholesale Banking Systems. "Banks battle everyday with the ever-present spectre of rules and regulations. We have developed Opics Compliance, based on the Misys Eagleye product, to take away the headache of having to manage this by automating what was once a laborious time-consuming activity fraught with potential mistakes."

The application is capable of performing more than 1,000 checks per second, including inventory limits, compliance rules, trader limits, profit & loss limits, operational risk rules and risk limits. These can be simple checks against a condition, absolute number, percentage or more complex comparisons with historical results or other data held within Misys Opics.

Opics Compliance takes advantage of the latest technology to provide the ability to perform high volumes of limits and compliance checks rapidly. It utilises Microsoft.Net technologies to create a highly flexible, reliable and secure application, which can be scaled to whatever requirements the financial institution has.
