Identifying and Overcoming Gaps in Compliance Surveillance


Effective surveillance plays a crucial role for compliance in maintaining regulatory compliance and safeguarding the firm from the effects of illicit employee behavior that leads to market abuse and market manipulation. Regulators fully expect that firms to have effective controls in place to monitor employee behavior and transactions for non-compliance, whether inadvertent or intentional.

In today’s environment where regulators like the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the U.K. Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), and others emphasize proactive enforcement, effective surveillance helps firms stay on top of regulatory priorities and be aware of potential issues across the company—and ahead of compliance risk.

Surveilling employee behavior for compliance with regulations and company policy across areas including personal trading, access to MNPI and insider information and communications activity monitors for lapses, conflicts of interest and potential bad behavior, allowing firms to identify and address potential concerns before the regulators do.
