Looking ahead, the company said that GIS will continue to enhance and alter its products to suit customers' needs in 2002. In addition, GIS will pursue prospects globally -- trusts, banks and mutual-fund firms -- particularly in the Caribbean region and in Eastern Europe, both considered areas of great potential growth.
