Riyad Bank Chooses Calypso for Front-to-Back-Office Support
 

- Key factors in the bank's selection include Calypso's straight-through-processing capabilities and Islamic finance coverage

Riyadh KSA – 9 July 2013 — Calypso Technology Inc., the leading integrated treasury and capital markets software provider, has been selected by Riyad Bank, one of the largest financial institutions in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East, to provide treasury operations and structured product front-to-back-office support. The Calypso system will be rolled out cross-asset in the bank's operations to support structured products and hedge accounting. This selection marks a major win for Calypso in Saudi Arabia, a leading centre in Islamic finance.

Riyad Bank, looking to update front-to-back-office systems and operations, will change from a process based operating model to a more efficient exception-based one, significantly improving its straight-through-processing (STP) rate. Additionally, the bank will align its treasury operations with international and Islamic financial industry standards. Calypso will support the cross-asset requirements of the bank's business covering its FX (cash and derivatives), money market, interest rate derivatives, fixed income and commodities (including precious metals and derivatives) operations. 

Key factors in the selection were Calypso's cross-asset, flexible solution with its enhanced operational capabilities and high level of STP.

Riyad Al-Zahrani, EVP Operations at Riyad Bank, said, “It was important for us to select a vendor that would deliver industry best practices, front-to-back-office support for structured products and cross-asset capabilities as well as the Shariah-compliant support that is critical for our market and for growing the business regionally. We went through a robust selection process during which Calypso outperformed other solutions in areas of functionality, flexibility and technology.”

Charles Marston, Chairman and CEO of Calypso, states, “We look forward to working with Riyad Bank, a key Saudi Arabian financial institution and market leader. Calypso remains committed to servicing the Middle East and Saudi Arabia in particular, a principal centre in Shariah finance. The region is of increasing importance in global finance and we are pleased to be a part of this dynamic and vibrant marketplace.”
