HOBOKEN, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NICE Actimize, a NICE (Nasdaq:NICE) business and the industry leader in Autonomous Financial Crime Management, was named the category winner for “Best Trade Surveillance Solution for MAD/MAR Technology” in A-Team Group’s 2018 RegTech Awards. Following its shortlisting compiled by a distinguished awards advisory board of judges from leading financial services organizations who reviewed the competition finalists, NICE Actimize was the recipient of the most online votes in its category by industry participants, including readers of Data Management Review and Intelligent Trading Technology, notable publications under the A-Team Group umbrella.
With this year’s competition covering 27 categories, the 2018 RegTech Awards celebrate leading technologies and third-party vendors in the area of their expertise, and are uniquely designed to recognize both start-up and established providers of RegTech solutions, services, consultancy and legal advice. The RegTech Awards evaluation considered depth of involvement in capital markets, relevance of a solution or service to a selected award category, and the potential interest of a solution or service to the publications’ RegTech community.
Chris Wooten, Executive Vice President, NICE, said "We thank the readers of A-Team Group publications Data Management Review and Intelligent Trading Technology, along with our customers and partners, for demonstrating their continuing confidence in our commitment to meeting the demands of MiFID II and MAR. As we continue to transform and update our solutions in financial markets compliance, with advancements in artificial intelligence, machine learning and the cloud, we will work closely with our customers to optimize operations, lower costs and reduce reputational risk.”
MiFID II, which went into effect on January 3rd, requires firms to monitor communications and transactions for Market Abuse and sets a higher bar for High Frequency Trading, requiring such trading activity to be monitored at the microsecond level. Firms that do not comply with this stipulation risk fines, or worse, reputational damage if market abuse goes undetected. To address this, NICE Actimize, enhanced its Market Surveillance Solution to help firms comply with the MiFID II microsecond requirement, while improving firms’ ability to detect and mitigate market abuse.
Additionally, rapid trade reconstruction is mandated by the global-reaching MiFID II, MAR, Code of Conduct and Dodd-Frank regulations, and in most cases with a demanding 72-hour turnaround. To address these and other rigorous trading compliance requirements, NICE Actimize added an innovative new Trade Reconstruction module to its Holistic Surveillance portfolio.
The new Trade Reconstruction solution features advanced machine-learning analytics to classify and understand the content based on previous examples and patented automated correlation capabilities to link trade executions to trade conversations that can cut trade reconstruction time from days to minutes, and help firms improve responsiveness to regulators. Successfully deployed at several large financial institutions, NICE Actimize’s Trade Reconstruction module is already significantly reducing turnaround time and greatly increasing accuracy over previously used manual methods.
