Market Surveillance for CIBs

How to assess your current capabilities and identify potential opportunities for improvement.

The Surveillance Landscape is Changing

Surveillance is a key requirement for financial institutions to detect instances of market abuse and other forms of misconduct. Yet the landscape is changing and there is a number of challenges organizations need to consider, such as:

  • Operational Risk: The global trend of remote work has opened the door to greater misconduct and manipulative behaviors. These new threats will need to be addressed by investing more in platforms that increase efficiency and accuracy within surveillance functions.
  • Technological Advancement: The radical transformation that securities markets have undergone in recent years has meant firms will need to adapt. Firms will need to use cutting-edge technologies and deploy highly automated systems to improve market abuse detection to bring in line with a changing world.
  • Regulatory Pressure: Financial institutions need to take proactive measures to ensure they are meeting regulatory standards and industry best practices.
