Features Analytics mentioned in the Aite report - Intelligent Oversight: Trade and Market Surveillance for 2021 and Beyond
Firms that select to internally source or use less-than-optimal trading surveillance are putting their firms at risk of harm.
The siloed approach to trade, communication, and market surveillance has led to challenges in achieving transparency and data visibility across multiple venues and asset classes. This model of siloed surveillance is not sustainable in the long run. Going forward, firms will need to focus more on risk-based surveillance programs, increase the capability to link structured data with unstructured data to achieve a complete view of activity, develop models to build surveillance for new asset classes, and strive toward more automation in traditional alert-based surveillance programs.
