Recorded Webinar: Trade Surveillance and data capture for MiFID II compliance

27 June 2017

Under MiFID II and MiFIR, any firm participating in electronic trading of financial instruments will need to conduct real-time monitoring of current trading activity and be able to sequentially reconstruct past trading events. No longer will capture and reporting of transaction data be enough. Firms will have to satisfy regulators’ need to see quote data, which shows what was happening in the markets before trading and transactions occurred. While many in the industry are seeing challenging demands from the new requirements, some acknowledge they are justified and present an opportunity to collect more data and analyse that data for multiple functions.

This means collecting granular data on quotes and timestamps, presenting substantial challenges. Network packet capture and data retrieval advances are becoming evident as ways to collect the relevant data and report it as required. The scale of data capture and storage is going to increase by an unprecedented extent. Structuring data capture systems correctly can make these challenges bearable and also yield other benefits.

Listen to the webinar to better understand the technological and management elements important to trade surveillance and data capture for compliance with MiFID II, such as:

  • Role of network packet capture for handling trade and order data
  • Role of data capture in investigating trading anomalies
  • Ensuring accuracy of post-trade investigations
  • Supporting queries across assets, instruments and venues
  • Scaling network packet capture, data aggregation and queries
  • Accomplishing trade reconstruction through surveillance and capture systems
