Don't miss our surveillance product presentation at 12.25, presented by Sam Taylor. Sam will be demoing SteelEye's holistic trade and communications surveillance solution, providing an overview of how SteelEye reduces false positives and enables firms to improve their compliance oversight.


Surveillance within financial institutions has historically been viewed as a function of limited value, often being conducted in low-cost, anonymous locations by relatively junior employees. However, over the past decade attitudes have changed.

The Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) which replaced the Market Abuse Directive (MAD) in 2016, has increased the pressure on firms to proactively identify suspicious activity, market abuse and financial crime, requiring them to monitor, detect and report on a broader range of suspicious behaviours on a broader range of instruments.

These increasing requirements, combined with the financial crisis in the late 2000's, a number of high-profile misconduct scandals and punitive action from regulators across the globe, has resulted in a paradigm shift in the way financial firms approach their surveillance processes.

As a result. financial institutions have significantly increased their investment in compliance monitoring and oversight over the past 10 years, building up large, sophisticated surveillance teams and deploying smarter solutions. 

The 1LoD Surveillance Summit is a practitioner-led event held for the financial services industry. The event brings together over 200 surveillance leaders, regulators, external experts, and technology and service providers to discuss best practices, industry challenges and the latest innovations within surveillance.
