Ger Knowles, head of regulations and compliance at Davy, said, “It is vital to display corporate responsibility and identify potential market abuse. SunGard’s Protegent Market Abuse solution provides the flexibility and functionality that we need to help manage the increasing regulatory requirements to perform timely and exhaustive market abuse surveillance.”
Steve Sabin, chief operating officer of SunGard’s Protegent business unit, said, “It’s crucial that trading participants establish a comprehensive trade monitoring process in order to comply with all of the regulatory requirements, minimize the regulatory risk involved in trading activities and protect their reputation.
