LONDON and NEW YORK, November 1, 2010 - GoldenSource, a provider of data

products to help risk professionals implement highly automated, timely and
cost effective risk management strategies. With firms pushed to increase
transparency of their risk and data governance and meet more stringent

cover all major types of risk and asset classes. It allows event-driven
synchronization of information between systems for reporting and corporate
governance requirements, managing inputs for risk calculations, and
evaluation of risk exposure.

Director, TowerGroup. "This is where the value of a framework, or
architectural approach, to the orchestration of internal and external data,
in concert with analytics, can deliver a true firm-wide understanding of

Using its built-in visual data mapping tools, RiskHub can be configured
for use with market-leading risk applications, and includes expert
customization services to meet the needs of clients' integration
requirements. An optional add-on to RiskHub, RiskMonitor provides an
additional layer of data visualization and business intelligence. Providing a
user friendly front end RiskMonitor enables firms to take advantage of both
preconfigured views of data, and to develop firm specific views as required.
