Subscribe to our newsletter

Swiss investment firm Vontobel has renewed its contract with NICE Actimize, and expanded its use of the SURVEIL-X Markets Surveillance platform. The broadened arrangement will support Vontobel’s future growth plans while continuing to meet its current regulatory requirements.

The new arrangement allows long-time NICE Actimize client Vontobel to add new capabilities going forward. Vontobel’s use of SURVEIL-X is mostly focused on its Investment and Asset Management capabilities, with the new contract allowing the firm to add sector coverage as it expands its investment operations globally.

According to Marco Furegati, Executive Director and Head of Compliance Markets at Vontobel, “In order to provide the best possible service and security to our clients, it is essential to have a solid framework in terms of compliance with all market rules. NICE Actimize’s SURVEIL-X Markets Surveillance meets these requirements and provides a holistic approach to cover our future business requirements.”

NICE Actimize’s Markets Surveillance solution is part of the SURVEIL-X Holistic Conduct Surveillance platform. The system is aimed at helping financial services institutions, broker/dealers and future commission merchants meet their regulatory obligations, avoid costly fines and preserve their reputation.

“Regulators worldwide have become more aggressive in investigating and bringing enforcement actions, fines, and sanctions against firms with inadequate compliance procedures and systems,” says Chris Wooten, EVP, NICE Vertical Markets. “NICE Actimize brings next level markets surveillance and risk detection capabilities at scale, with even better detection coverage and the ability to monitor unified communications.”
