The Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) is rolling out market abuse technology from Actimize to improve its surveillance and supervision of the Dutch market.
Actimize says its surveillance system will help the Dutch regulator spot various forms of market abuse, including market manipulation and insider dealing, which have become increasingly difficult to detect as financial instruments become more complex.
The system monitors and detects suspicious transactions and automatically distributes alerts to relevant users. The vendor says that by using several analytical methods to assign a priority score to alerts, its technology improves the efficiency of regulators, trading managers and compliance staff.
The system is also built on a single, integrated platform, enabling the AFM to add additional compliance, fraud and anti-money laundering offerings over time, whilst retaining the same detection engine, case manager interface, dashboard, interactive trade blotter, investigation and audit tracking.
