New Delhi, India, 2008/11/05 - BNP Paribas Securities (Asia) – a subsidiary of BNP Paribas Group, one of the leading financial services groups in the world – has opted for ANALEC ResearchWiseTM for its capital markets and brokerage business.

Commenting on the transaction, ANALEC’s CEO – Indy Sarker – said, “We are delighted to work with BNP Paribas; a highly respected global financial powerhouse. Our ResearchWise platform will bring on board over 100 investment analysts at BNP Paribas across Asia, involving 11 locations. In addition, this initiative will automate a number of business processes within research compliance, content distribution and client servicing; ensuring quality control, productivity enhancements and improved risk management and business continuity planning within the business.”
“ANALEC ResearchWise is gaining wide acceptance in the Asian market place as the solution of choice when it comes to re-organizing investment research divisions and their contribution to the client servicing effort within brokerages and investment banks. The dislocations and challenges faced by the investment research business within brokerages are being proactively met by ResearchWise”, says Colin Stone – CTO and Chief Product Architect at ANALEC.
ANALEC ResearchWise™ is playing a vital role in streamlining business processes and introducing efficiencies within brokerages and banks, as they cope with the challenges of a competitive brokerage market place and an un-bundled commission environment, when it comes to getting paid by their clients. ANALEC continues to innovate and enhance its product suites to reflect a deeper understanding of its customer’s business and their dynamic and evolving requirements.
Over the course of the next 3-4 months ANALEC’s team of software implementation specialists and business analysts will work alongside the project team at BNP Paribas to successfully complete the rollout of ANALEC ResearchWise™ within BNPP’s Asian brokerage business; along with getting onsite at BNPP to impart user- and administrator-level training on the platform across the business.
