Firms that trade energy and commodities are recognizing the importance of implementing surveillance technologies that monitor proprietary, customer, and employee trading activities for suspicious behaviors of interest.
Over the past several months regulatory agencies like the CFTC, FERC and FSA, have set clearer mandates and dispensed stiff penalties necessitating energy market participants to intensify their compliance initiatives.
Furthermore, the recent Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act brings comprehensive reform to the regulation of over-the-counter derivatives and authorizes the CFTC to undertake further rule making, if required, in the areas of trade monitoring and trade processing.
For over a decade, Oracle Financial Services has delivered trade surveillance solutions that generate automated alerts extending across numerous asset classes for the global banking community. Oracle Financial Services Energy and Commodity Trading Compliance builds on these experiences to enable energy and commodity trading firms to effectively monitor their proprietary, employee, and institutional customer trading activity.
Oracle Financial Services Energy and Commodity Trading Compliance is available as a part of the Oracle Financial Services Analytical Applications offering:
