Clarksons Securities chooses Trapets as Trade surveillance partner


We are proud that Clarksons Securities has chosen Trapets as a partner for Trading surveillance and continued compliance efforts to meet the ever-increasing requirements of the Market Abuse Regulation (MAR). 

A more automated surveillance process was vital to Clarksons´ business operations and success. In searching for a new partner, combining technical requirements such as easy-to-use and fast-to-implement with the need for human analysis and surveillance capabilities was essential. Trapets could meet the needs of Clarksons to enable both the product for automated surveillance through InstantWatch Market and the human capacity through our Financial Crime Surveillance service. 

“The combination of technology and niched surveillance competence through an outsourced team is a win for us,“ says Christian Fodstad, Chief Compliance Officer. “ It allows us to improve our processes continuously, backed up by a competent team at Trapets. “
