Outsourced Trading Surveillance

The easiest way to get compliant

About the service

With an increasing range of financial instruments being offered, trading is becoming more and more complex. The market structure has also become more variable and complicated and the volumes of transactions have increased sharply.

At the same time the obligation has increased for the firms to monitor their trading activities in order to detect and report suspicious orders and transactions. According to the Market Abuse Regulation, “MAR”, all persons professionally arranging or executing transactions need to have a monitoring set-up in place in order to detect suspicious market abuse and submit Suspicious Transaction and Order Reports, “STOR”, to their regulator.

Effective market surveillance has become an area for experienced experts with access to advanced surveillance systems and comprehensive market data.

To assist firms in achieving regulatory compliance regarding trade monitoring and surveillance, Trapets offers Outsourced Trading Surveillance, OTS.
