Our solutions in Asia now cover eight countries for regulatory reporting and the demand for our unified risk and regulatory product in ALM/Liquidity and IFRS has attracted quality staff from leading risk vendors. This was also backed up by the Chartis rankings that rated the FRSGlobal risk solution as one of the leading products in the market place today. I am delighted to welcome all of our new staff to FRSGlobal in this exciting and dynamic market place and I sure they will contribute to our success and next phase of growth in the region."
