Recorded Webinar: Trade surveillance: Deploying monitoring and surveillance capabilities for today’s new normal

8 April 2021

Let’s face it: The old ways aren’t coming back. A plethora of challenges brought on by the covid-19 pandemic, coupled with unrelenting market volatility and uncertainty, have pushed financial service firms to look for rigorous monitoring and surveillance solutions to meet the demands of the emerging trading landscape.

Working from home (WFH) has increased the opportunity for market abuse, with observers pointing to the need for robust monitoring in remote working environments and predicting a rapid rise in surveillance technology spend in 2021. With market manipulation and alert management at the forefront of trade surveillance requirements – and with regulators offering marketing participants no quarter on their obligations – how can your firm develop the necessary monitoring and surveillance capabilities to meet the demands?

This webinar will discuss the challenges brought on by the pandemic, the regulatory requirements and operational responsibilities of firms; and will outline best practices and solutions for expanding firms’ processes.

Register for this webinar to:

  • Examine the monitoring and trade surveillance challenges of the new working environment
  • Discuss the regulatory requirements and operational burdens resulting from the pandemic
  • Consider the tools and technologies available
