Financial institutions are under enormous pressure from regulators to implement effective surveillance programmes to protect against the misuse of material non-public information.
Most banks are not able to fully control access to confidential information and prevent opportunities for insider trading. They rely on manual processes that are weak, time-consuming and costly.
The surveillance solutions in use today produce too many alerts or are not sophisticated enough to identify situations in which behaviour indicates a deliberate attempt to avoid detection.
Designed in partnership with a major global investment bank, the GFT information barrier surveillance solution provides comprehensive global information barrier monitoring across equities, fixed income and listed derivative trading.
