The Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF), the regulatory and oversight body for Québec's financial sector, has issued a Request for Information (RFI) for potential suppliers to tender for the creation of a new Market Analysis Platform (MAP).
The AMF is looking to build a central data repository capable of capturing and storing trading data from securities markets across the country.
The AMF says the repository will be used for the retrospective assessment of market activity with a view to detecting and investigating cross-product and cross-venue trading anomalies, in particular for the detection of possible illegal insider trading and market manipulation.
The RFI also calls for a toolset to populate and interrogate the data repository for subsequent analysis and visualisation of its contents.
Vendors are invited to tender for the entire project or for specific components of the repository. The full RFI
can be downloaded from the Merx Canadian public tenders Website.
