Misys: a Constant Presence
From relatively modest beginnings, with the first Eurobond issue
for Autostrade in 1963, the international capital market has grown
into a multi-trillion dollar industry serving the needs of
governments, supranationals and corporates all around the world,
with an ever-increasing range of innovative financial products.
Domestic and international banking markets alike have seen
seismic change: the challenges of deregulation in the 1970s
and 1980s; the automation of transaction settlement and processing
from the 1980s to present day; onerous regulatory requirements from
the first Basel Accord through to the current Dodd-Frank, EMIR and
Basel III; and increasing scrutiny of operations, largely the
result of trading in highly complex financial products, incurring
high levels of risk.
Fortunately developments in technology over much of this period
have enabled market participants and suppliers alike to keep pace,
survive and thrive, acquiring the new skills and capabilities
necessary to respond to change rapidly.
Given the pace of change in these radically different market
conditions, if suppliers wanted to meet customers' needs promptly,
they did not always have the luxury of starting from a blank sheet
of paper when faced with a new market event; time would just not
permit a 'greenfield' approach.
Misys therefore adopted a policy of considered acquisitions, to
ensure that when customers were faced with a new business or
technology challenge, or were looking to take advantage of a market
opportunity, it was in a position to provide a proven ,
effective, quality solution, which had already been tried and
tested by some of the world's leading global financial
