No.1 for Capital Markets in
China Celebrates 30 Years in
Asia in 2011

Misys plc (FTSE: MSY.L), the global leader in treasury and
capital markets solutions, announced today the group’s plan to
extend its market leadership and its long-term commitment to China
by growing its staff strength in China from 120 to 300 over the
coming year.

“We are celebrating an incredible 30 years in Asia this year and
during that time have built an enviable leadership position in
China, with over 40 clients, including some of China’s leading
banks and asset managers,” said Ed Ho, Executive Vice President and
General Manager, Treasury & Capital Markets, Misys.

“As part of our continued commitment to provide our clients with
innovative, localised  and tailored solutions, we are stepping
up our investment in China so as to help our customers with their
aggressive growth plans and leverage on market trends like the
internationalisation of RMB and the roll-out of new products,”
continued Ed Ho.

Misys will be moving its current service centre in Beijing to a
larger brand new office at the end of July to accommodate the
planned expansion.  The state-of-the-art facility will allow
our experts to design and develop solutions to address local market
requirements and service our expanding client base in China and the
APAC region.    

Misys clients will be able to learn more about the company’s
latest research and development and regional strategy at an APAC
User Group conference in the autumn, a chance to showcase what has
worked for Misys’ current clients and for them to seek advice and
share best practices.

Operations Centre, spoke about the difference Misys had made to
their business: “As the fifth largest bank in China by market
capitalisation and with a reputation of high standards and quality
to maintain, client service is of utmost importance to us. We
continually strive to improve our service in every way we can, to
all our clients whatever their size. This means that we have to
introduce the best technology on the market to improve systems,
achieve optimal efficiency and keep costs and risks to a

Over the last year Misys has won numerous awards including Asia
