Yuanta Futures, a subsidiary of Taiwan-based Yuanta Financial Holdings, has chosen Eventus to provide trade surveillance for its futures and options business. This move signifies the first Taiwanese client for Eventus, a global provider of trade surveillance, market risk, transaction monitoring and algorithmic monitoring solutions. Ranking number one for futures and options market share, profitability, and capital in Taiwan, Yuanta Futures recognised the value of Eventus’ Validus trade surveillance platform for its superior alert capability and user-friendly interface, according to a company announcement.

Rebecca Hu, Yuanta Futures’ Senior Manager of Customer Service Trading Department, praised the customer experience and improved surveillance outcomes provided by Eventus. “We have been very pleased with the responsiveness and expertise of the Eventus team as we have implemented the technology. Our compliance staff has found Validus to be much more user-friendly, and we see improved clarity and accuracy in the outcomes the system provides,” she said.

Nick Wallis, Eventus Head of Sales, International Markets, expressed the firm’s pride in partnering with one of Taiwan’s most important futures companies. “We are delighted to have won the trust of one of the region’s leading companies and to have the opportunity to deliver surveillance outcomes that are more precise and easier to action. We look forward to continuing to work with Yuanta as an important foundation customer as we further grow our client business in the Asia-Pacific region,” he commented.

Eventus’ reputation for best-in-class service and technological expertise is underscored by more than 30 awards and honours received since 2018, including Best Trade Surveillance Solution at A-Team’s RegTech Insight Awards 2022 Europe.
