QuIC Perspectives to Help Financial Services Professionals Navigate Unique Challenges in Risk Management Industry

QuIC Perspectives Series Extended to Advise Risk Managers with Insight from Industry-Leading Subject Matter Experts

VANCOUVER, CANADA--(Marketwire - April 27, 2009) - QuIC Financial Technologies Inc, a global solutions provider for risk management, pricing and financial analytics, today announced the launch of the QuIC Perspective article series, a communications resource featuring industry thought-leaders and subject matter experts addressing the most relevant challenges and solutions facing risk managers today.

In today's economy where the banking and financial sectors are experiencing significant fundamental changes and evolving regulatory requirements, risk managers and risk technology personnel must address increasingly complex challenges to their risk infrastructure, quickly and effectively. To help banks address these challenges, the QuIC Perspectives article series, which is designed as an extension to the company's seminars, explores timely, practical issues affecting risk managers. Specifically, each issue of the series focuses on distilling critical information and expert insight on risk infrastructure, technology, implementation, or regulatory topics facing risk management personnel and business decision-makers, helping them to design and develop impactful risk management strategies during this difficult financial environment.

"We understand that banks and financial organisations are facing unprecedented internal and external challenges, with rapidly emerging regulatory requirements pending," said Nigel Cairns, President and CEO for QuIC Financial Technologies. "The immense pressure to act fast, while considering the strategic implications of managing market and credit risk, have today's risk managers focused on understanding their priorities and solutions available in the market. By leveraging industry thought-leaders and subject matter experts, the QuIC Perspective article series aims to summarise important issues and outline key considerations to help customers successfully navigate through these challenging times."

Featuring key industry thought-leaders and subject matter experts from specialised risk management disciplines, each issue of QuIC Perspectives follows an interview format, with top-of-mind big picture topics, complemented by additional, drilled-down specifics and recommendations. The inaugural issue of QuIC Perspectives titled "The Road To Reform Report" features Julian Leake of Deloitte, and is now available for download from www.quic.com.

"We are proud to launch the QuIC Perspective article series as it serves as another medium for us to actively communicate with the risk management community," added Justin Forrest, Executive Vice President of Global Sales for QuIC. "Our hope is that through industry participation, and contributions from QuIC experts, QuIC Perspectives will emerge as a trusted source for information and act as a key communication medium between our colleagues in the risk management industry."

Issues of QuIC Perspectives will often complement and work in-conjunction with the QuIC Perspective seminar series, the live, speaker-lead seminars presented in major financial centres around the globe.
