ANZ Bank Makes FRSGlobal the Corporate Standard for Regulatory Reporting

Major Bank in APJ Selects RegPro for 12 Countries

LONDON and SINGAPORE--(Marketwire - October 5, 2009) - FRSGlobal, the only global provider of risk and regulatory reporting solutions with coverage for over 40 countries on a unified platform, today announced that Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited (ANZ) has chosen FRSGlobal's regulatory reporting tool, RegPro, to be implemented across 12 countries in Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) as the bank increases its presence as a super regional bank.

Initially RegPro will be rolled out to ANZ Bank's Indonesia, China, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Japan, India, Philippines, South Korea and Cambodia offices. The bank has options to roll out RegPro into South Pacific, Australia and New Zealand at a later stage.

Over the last 12 months FRSGlobal's product coverage in APJ has grown from three to eight countries and with the addition of ANZ this will increase further.

Steve Thurley, VP Asia Pacific and Japan, FRSGlobal commented:

"We are delighted to be working with ANZ Bank in the region. This is another example of how well FRSGlobal solutions meet the increasing regulatory demands of global banks. With our solutions, they do not have to implement a plethora of local solutions which are expensive, difficult and risky to maintain. Our offering is extremely compelling as we enable global banks to centralise multi-country risk and regulatory reporting from both a technical and business perspective and address global regulatory, compliance and risk requirements at a local level."

ANZ will be able to address global regulatory requirements with its implementation of FRSGlobal's RegPro which consists of:

-- A single repository of validated data originating from a plethora of
   source systems -- DataFoundation. One central solution, capable of
   extracting data from multiple systems into one physical location, faces
   the four data challenges: availability, movement, consolidation and
-- Easy-to-use software that automates the generation of risk and
   regulatory reports -- ReportGenerator
-- Regulatory reports for 40+ countries -- ReportGlobal -- with a Guarantee
   to keep them in line with Regulators' requirements which, in the current
   climate, will ease the regulatory burden on financial institutions
-- The ability to define new country or internal management-style reports
   -- ReportBuilder
-- A library of submitted regulatory reports and the ability for audit,
   with full drill-down/up functionality for quick investigation into how
   the figures were derived.
