- BPNG Adds Latest Risk Solutions to Improve Risk Management and Compliance
Misys (LSE: MSY), the global application software and services company, today announced that Bank of Papua New Guinea has gone live with Misys Opics Plus v3.0, Misys Opics Risk Plus and Misys Eagleye. The integrated solution will deliver enhanced efficiency and visibility in its reserves management operation and increased automation and management control of credit, market and operational risks.
The Bank of Papua New Guinea is a contemporary central bank and regulator, employing best practice in the development of monetary policy, financial sector supervision and payment system. The Bank's objective was to significantly update its systems in order to improve its operational efficiency and risk management capabilities to ensure it had a comprehensive reserves management system.
The Bank selected Misys following a three-way competitive pitch, which saw the Misys solutions emerging as the clear leader in providing operational efficiency with effective risk management solutions. The latest version of Misys Opics Plus will enable the Bank to process higher volumes of treasury instruments and provide clients with more products. The back office will utilise the system's event-based workflow manager to confirm deal and payment information with counterparties and send automatically generated confirmations.
Misys Opics Risk Plus and Misys Eagleye provide a comprehensive risk management framework for the central bank including performance and return attribution analysis, portfolio and currency compliance limits and policy controls. The integrated front-to-back system will provide for easier reconciliation and regulatory reporting.
Mr Loi Martin Bakani, Governor, Bank of Papua New Guinea, said: "We were keen to modernise our infrastructure in order to gain greater transparency, operational efficiency and risk management across our reserves management operations. Misys was the ideal partner due to its leading solutions and excellent track record in delivering leading treasury systems."
