A holistic surveillance program combines surveillance technology with human expertise to help identify potential insider trading, market abuse, and other misconduct. The technology brings together structured and unstructured data, normalizes the data, and runs sophisticated analytics to provide deeper, more meaningful results for analysis and review by dedicated surveillance analysts. The result is a comprehensive view of behavior and potential surveillance risks across your firm.

Regulators around the globe continue to focus on identifying and punishing insider trading, market abuse, and other misconduct. They are investing in their own technology and data analytics capabilities to support this priority, and they expect investment management firms to implement their own surveillance technology to remain vigilant and proactive. This places an additional burden on a firm's already stretched risk and compliance teams.
