Regulation and Compliance

Trading organisations are subject to scrutiny from an increasing variety of sources.   Events leading to the so called “credit crunch” have pushed the whole area of financial regulation and trading control right to the top of the political agenda. Politicians need to show that the world of finance and banking is under control and transparency is becoming paramount.

Organisations which are unable to demonstrate that they are capable of controlling their trading businesses, preventing undesirable trading activities and reporting on them will increasingly find themselves in the full glare of public scrutiny

Energy and Financial regulatory legislation is driving the need for greater reporting transparency and control over trading activities and many current system are simply not equipped to provide the information or carry out the actions required to ensure compliance with such legislation. This means that the typical trading organisation will have to spend less time trading and more time explaining how and why it has traded.
