LONDON, March 8, 2010 - Equipos today announces that Fairbairn Private Bank, a multi
award-winning private bank with offices in London, Jersey, Isle of Man and
South Africa, has upgraded its client communications processes with the
addition of Equipos Coric Straight Through Reporter (STR). Fairbairn Private
Bank is a long-standing Equipos client, having deployed the company's Coric
Document Manager solution to generate client valuations across its business
more than eight years ago.

Equipos Coric STR is an advanced client reporting platform incorporating
sophisticated data modelling, data maintenance, document design and report
production. Client report templates are built quickly and easily to produce
engaging client reports with rich, business rule-driven content.

According to Ian Ansell, systems manager at Fairbairn Private Bank, "We
have known the Equipos team for many years, and always felt our business was
highly valued. When looking for a more comprehensive reporting solution to
deliver tailored and structured reports, efficiently and with greater visual
impact, Equipos was the obvious partner. Operationally they have provided us
with a much more stable client reporting platform, with faster delivery. We
are now able to capture data from source systems, validate it, generate
reports, apply post-production checks and authorisations and distribute
within a few hours. The benefits to our clients are considerable; their
reports will be more presentable, appealing and digestible, and in the future
we will be able to offer alternative delivery methods."

Alan Hamilton, CEO of Equipos, comments, "We have enjoyed a long,
successful partnership with Fairbairn Private Bank and are delighted they and
their clients are benefiting from this major functional improvement to their
operation. The financial markets are undergoing a period of unprecedented
change, and effective communication is essential to ensure business growth
and retention."
