Deutsche Postbank Selects Asset Control for Market Data Management

    NEW YORK, Sept. 30 /CNW/ - Asset Control, a world-wide leader in
financial data management solutions, today announced that Germany's largest
retail bank Postbank has chosen Asset Control's AC Plus financial and
reference data management software.
    Postbank will use Asset Control to provide quality controlled pricing
data to the bank's risk control department and support its Internal VaR (Value
at Risk) Model for market risk. Postbank required a solution that could be
implemented to meet its time-to-market objectives, while requiring only
minimum IT resources in the day-to-day management of the system.
    Dr. Guenter Fiebach, head of risk control at Postbank, said, "We chose
Asset Control because the solution's template-driven infrastructure will
ensure a simpler initial implementation and allow us to meet our required
timelines. The solution also provides a sophisticated workflow that will
enable us to automate our data management processes ourselves over time. In
addition, Asset Control has a strong, recognized customer base in Germany, and
therefore has a unique understanding of the local financial and regulatory
    Phil Lynch, Asset Control's president and chief executive officer, said,
"Asset Control's strong presence in the German financial markets and proven
record for reliability and resilience of our solutions will benefit Postbank
today and in the future as their data management needs evolve. We are
delighted that Postbank has chosen Asset Control, and we look forward to
helping them to achieve enhanced growth and success."
