Demonstrating fair and transparent trading and operations is critical to managing reputational risk and ensuring regulatory compliance.
Today firms are monitoring trading on more markets than ever before, which requires visibility across multiple venues and asset classes with a pool of data that is growing at a dramatic rate.
As regulatory authorities continue to raise the stakes, having systematic controls and surveillance procedures in place is critical.
Via a combination of traditional alerts-based monitoring and risk-based discovery, we help compliance teams take a multifaceted approach to surveillance. Our SMARTS Trade Surveillance solutions provide deep information on an individual’s behaviors in the context of market conditions, peer groups and their own individual norms – allowing you to uncover abusive behaviors and people that are more likely to manipulate the market based on their actions.
