Murex's MX.3 platform chosen by Bank of China to provide a fully integrated front-to-back solution for treasury & trading.

Murex, the leading provider of integrated trading, risk management and processing solutions, today announced that Bank of China, one of the world's top 10 leading banks ("World Top 1000 Banks", The Banker), has selected the MX.3 platform to streamline their treasury and trading activities for growth.

After a thorough due diligence process and proof of concept involving all key vendors in the market, Murex's MX.3 front-to-back integrated platform was selected to replace Bank of China's legacy systems and create a consolidated infrastructure to enhance STP efficiency and improve risk management and control.

The implementation spans a comprehensive spectrum of asset classes (Foreign Exchange & Money markets, Fixed Income, Foreign Exchange Derivatives, Interest Rates Derivatives, Commodities, Equity Derivatives, Credit Derivatives and Inflation) and will cover all key functions of the trade life cycle from front to back office, including risk and collateral management, with the aim of enhancing business processes, cost and performance analysis and opening the door to new development projects.

Commenting on the selection of the Murex platform, Zhang CHEN, Head of Information Management, Bank of China: "In a context of rapid growth and development, Bank of China is due to increasingly play a significant role in local and global financial markets. Following the selection process, not only are we convinced that Murex will provide us with the leading edge technology that will take us further towards our strategic goal as a first-class international bank, but also that the market expertise and level of service delivered by the teams are building the foundation for a successful long-term business partnership."

The multi-asset class treasury and capital markets solution will be deployed to 1000 users in BOC's head office and 35 of its overseas branches around the world. Once completed, the MX.3 platform will enable Bank of China to handle trading and treasury activities on a single system, providing a holistic view of risk across the group and supporting the bank's controlled and sustainable growth strategy, while enhancing processing efficiency thanks to automated workflows and exception management.

Guy OTAYEK, CEO of Murex Asia Pacific, says, "We are proud to have such a major player as Bank of China select Murex MX.3 platform to support their capital markets business worldwide. It is a wonderful challenge we have been working towards ever since we opened our office in Beijing back in 2006, and we are sure it will cement further our footprint in China and the region."
