Murex won Best Market Risk Solution in the 2009 Waters Rankings. The seventh annual Waters Rankings is an industry-respected award where the winners are chosen by the qualified readers of Waters magazine, a financial IT publication with more than 10,000 readers.
"Due to the events of the past 12 months, Waters created a new category to honor the products and services that help an investment firm monitor market risk. The readers of Waters who work inside investment firms chose Murex for its powerful and comprehensive risk solutions with 16.2 percent of the votes in a competitive race," says Phil Albinus, editor of Waters.
"Having a clear picture of a firm's risk exposure has never been more critical. The readers of Waters trust Murex as the expert solution when it comes to monitoring and mitigating market risk," adds Albinus.
"We are delighted that the massive investment made by Murex in its MX.3 platform has been recognised by the readers of Waters magazine" says Franés Pourprix, Head of Enterprise Risk Management at Murex. "The twenty years of accumulated experience of Murex teams and the MX.3 platform's best-of-breed pricing and analytics for each asset class have been leveraged to deliver a cutting edge solution for enterprise-wide market, credit and liquidity risk.
