Trader surveillance: manage conduct risk with powerful, innovative communications monitoring solutions

The need for financial institutions to monitor and screen electronic communications for conduct risk is a fact of life in the digital age. Regulators expect to see robust and effective trader surveillance systems, and firms themselves need to be sure that their systems stay one step ahead.

Monitoring the thousands of daily communications – from phone calls to email, chatrooms and instant messaging platforms – demands powerful technology and analytics, but also a profound understanding of the financial services sector. We bring the insight and expertise you need, offering tactical and strategic solutions to support the sector’s growing surveillance requirements.

We combine innovative surveillance technology – which provides sophisticated, real-time monitoring – with unparalleled capital markets experience and forensic investigation expertise. The use of multiple data sources gives you a 360⁰ view of each trade and the confidence that your monitoring systems are accurate and cost-effective.

Sanctions compliance: meet your sanctions compliance obligations efficiently and effectively

Our aim is to make your sanctions compliance processes and systems efficient, accurate and effective. We’ve harnessed the full power of analytics and the latest technology to vastly improve the operational effectiveness of sanctions screening.

Major advances in analytics and screening technology bring a new level of accuracy and efficiency to time-consuming processes such as alert management, freeing valuable time and resources within the organisation to focus on value-added tasks.

Our teams bring you the knowledge and experience of former government regulators and industry leaders and can help you with every stage of sanctions compliance, from assessing risk to integrating sanctions compliance into business strategy and daily processes. We’re adept at large-scale sanctions investigations and remediations and can navigate the complexities of multi-jurisdictional sanctions regimes with ease. Our analytics-driven approach gives you the confidence to take on the world.


Deal analytics applications: client case studies

Contract digitisation

Our client needed to upload data from its existing contracts into its new contract management platform, quickly and accurately. Using Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning, we designed and automated the contract digitisation process, training the machine to recognise the client’s unique terms and provisions. The result was a digitised process that was 30 times faster than a manual review, at a fraction of the cost.

Trader surveillance

A global investment bank needed to analyse millions of emails and chat messages to understand its potential exposure to allegations of market manipulation. We used purpose built technologies and sophisticated analytics to profile the interaction between certain traders and other market participants which enabled us to eliminate over 99% of the message volume, resulting in a much more targeted review of a small number of high risk messages and trades.
