Market Abuse Solutions for modern markets
Being able to prevent and detect market abuse infringements has never been more important for firms. Implementing a comprehensive market abuse solution is the easiest way to ensure that your firm keeps up to date with the latest regulations and legislations laid out by ESMA, the SEC or any National Competent Authority.
eflow is here to help. Since 2009, our TZ system has helped firms comply with all the latest market abuse regulations. In 2016, it underwent a major update to ensure full compliance with ESMA’s MAR guidelines (see here for a PDF overview of MAR).
We are committed to staying ahead of all market abuse regulations. We continue to work closely with industry experts and regulators for both development stages, and still run quarterly development cycles to make sure our product is always up to date with the latest requirements put forward by governing bodies and NCAs across the globe.
Why Choose TZ?
ESMA began cracking down on market abuse with the 2003 Market Abuse Directive (MAD). 13 years later, MAR solidified and developed upon many of these earlier regulations.
It’s never been more important to have a comprehensive system in place to counter market abuse and understand the ways it might occur.
Any such system will need to be regularly updated to meet the changing market abuse regulations, and will need to be able to reduce the risk of false positives – a problem often made worse by legacy systems that tend to struggle with time pressure and large volumes of data.
With TZ for Market Abuse and Insider Trading, you will have all the benefits of an off-the-shelf solution with the adaptability and flexibility of a custom-built solution. It’s incredibly easy to use and can handle the large-scale reporting measures you’ll need for MAR compliance.
