Kaizen Reporting has acquired Red Deer, a provider of integrated compliance solutions for surveillance and research workflows. Red Deer’s surveillance and research tools will be available via the Kaizen Hub, a web-based platform for accessing a range of compliance tools.
Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.
The Red Deer platform aims to help middle office and compliance teams at banks, asset management and trading firms comply with regulations, including market abuse and manipulation. Red Deer’s trade and communications surveillance technology helps companies identify market abuse like spoofing, layering and other forms of manipulation in exchange and OTC markets.
Its communications surveillance product, meanwhile, can scan and trace emails and chat conversations for signs of prohibited activity. Red Deer’s online research management tools provide solutions for managing MiFID II’s Unbundling and Fair Value rules.
According to Dario Crispini, CEO of Kaizen Reporting, “we are always looking to diversify our compliance offering for clients. The acquisition of Red Deer demonstrates our strengths in supporting clients with their regulatory and compliance needs and we’re delighted to offer this new range of surveillance and research tools to our clients through the Kaizen Hub.”
The transaction follows last month’s acquisition by Kaizen of a majority stake in London Reporting House, a new service that offers insight into the repo market. London Reporting House’s platform anonymises, aggregates, enriches and analyses raw SFTR trade data from multiple sources to provide unprecedented views over, and depth into, the EU and UK repo markets. As with Red Deer, London Reporting House products and analytics tools will be available via the Kaizen Hub.
