Why choose RegFocus Market Surveillance?

Surveillance is a Data Challenge

Regulations and market complexities continue to present a challenge for oversight functions within firms, increasing the cost of compliance for market participants of all scales and segments. Firms are required to monitor trading and communications for specific rule violations as well as identify overarching patterns of anomalous behavior. The burden of monitoring in a data-intensive environment is at a tipping point.

Identifying, monitoring, mapping and reporting on a broad range of data and behaviors is a major undertaking requiring people, technology and ongoing support. RIMES applies its best-in-class data management expertise to partner with clients to meet the challenge of surveillance. Is there an alternative path to traditional in-house or vendor approaches?
