Upcoming Webinar: Data management for analytics and market surveillance

19 January 2021

Date: 19 January 2021
Time: 10:00am ET / 3:00pm London / 4:00pm CET
Duration: 50 minutes

The financial services industry is starting to harness the potential of Big Data analytics to gain insights that can yield competitive advantage. At the same time, market surveillance has emerged as a major requirement for trading firms across the board as regulations like MiFID II and the EU’s Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) push both buy- and sell-side institutions to get a firm grasp on trading activity and market moves.

Innovative firms are analyzing vast data sets to identify trading opportunities and potential market abuses, while collecting and aggregating accurate and timely information for regulatory and other reporting purposes. But robust market surveillance and market-beating analytics both require a relentless effort to ensure consistency, comprehensiveness and timeliness of the data underpinning the operational systems in question.

Firms need to take a proactive approach to data quality to drive key analytical applications, thereby boosting confidence among stakeholders and regulators that their systems are fit for purpose.

The massive increase in data rates – in terms of both volume and frequency – over the past decade, combined with the fragmented organisational state of many large financial institutions, makes data ingestion, validation, normalisation and distribution a significant operational challenge. The growing embrace of cloud computing and remote hosting – while holding the promise of operational benefits – adds to the difficulty in synchronising data for use in trading, surveillance and reporting applications.

This webinar explores the challenges involved in establishing robust data management disciplines for putting in place robust analytical applications, whether for trading advantage, market surveillance or regulatory compliance. The session will discuss the requirements for ensuring data quality across multiple lines of business, and offer guidance on how to put in place the necessary sourcing, integration and governance processes.
