Boardroom Debate: Updating Trade Surveillance Technology

13 Nov 2024
  • In a more volatile, complex environment of algorithmic and high-frequency trading which causes increasing noise, do trade surveillance technologies have the capability to manage increasing complexity?
  • Given the lag in progress in trade surveillance compared to comms surveillance, why is it not receiving the necessary allocation of resource to develop? To what extent have recent enforcement actions relating to trade surveillance altered this position?
  • How can surveillance and compliance teams justify the increasing need to allocate resources to surveillance? Does this continue to rely primarily on regulatory action?
  • To what extent can banks recalibrate thresholds to reduce the number of alerts without running the risk of missing outliers and historical activity that may amount to malfeasance?
