The retail banking division of Societe Generale (Paris) has selected the Almonde solution from London-based Misys to reinforce its risk, margin simulation and monitoring capability.

Societe Generale chose the Misys Almonde Asset Liability Management (ALM) and Funds Transfer Pricing (FTP) solution to establish an integrated system that is able to both run simulations and report on FTP, internal margin and risk management. The combined AML/FTP product will allow the bank to weigh the various risks according to their costs.

Data management in Misys Almonde and Misys ALM Portal includes control/validation, enrichment, historical storage and restitution of both imported data and results. The solution also allows for a range of financial modeling. Furthermore, the capacity to separate the functional and technical areas of operation, in order to resolve issues more easily, is one of the recognized keys to the success of implementing the solution, according to Misys.
