CHALLENGEInstitutions and individuals face greater accountability for market surveillance and conduct management. Yet they have to do more with manual and slow processes that risk becoming obsolete in the face of regulatory pressure.
SOLUTIONSybenetix Compass market surveillance software delivers the deeper, faster and unprecedented insight needed to identify unusual trading behaviour with higher levels of accuracy across the enterprise.
IMPACTAs a result, all trades are scrutinised, there is faster focus on high-risk traders and proactive management of reporting, response to regulators and reputation.
WHAT MAKES COMPASS DIFFERENT
Vendors offering mathematical pattern detection are in abundance, but the problem is that market abuse is commited by people, and behavioural finance has shown us that people don’t fit mathematical models. The results are mountains of false positives.
Compliance officers know their traders and they know their patterns of trading in a way mathematical models can’t. With rising compliance costs, however, continually scaling the team isnt feasable. This is where behavioural science comes in to search your data the way a compliance officer does.
Using behaviourally smart algorithms, Sybenetix Compass generates cases that compliance officers agree warrant investigation. We do the heavy searching so your compliance officers can do what they do best – investigate.
Real-time decision support tools automatically flag suspicious market activity with reduced false positives. Immediate review and investigation takes place within the dashboard, enabling teams to build a process of excellence for conduct management.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!
“Compass is being used globally, this has become a collaborative tool and is setting a consistency of approach – it is setting a new standard of workflow and reporting. We have weekly team compliance (global) meetings to discuss new findings, new uses of data and this is now a major staff development drive. This is group learning in action and it is being driven by our CEO – it’s the thing that keeps him awake at night (insider dealing, fines, conduct, reputational risk.)”- Compliance Officer
“We now have proactive self-reporting to compliance before the next day flag has even been raised. This is completely unheard of behavioural change.“- Group Head of Compliance
“To date, since Compass went into production, every regulatory enquiry relating to trading we have received in the US, Europe and Asia had been predicted and flagged by Compass and had already been investigated by our Compliance team before the regulators request. 100% is extraordinary and far beyond our expectations “- Head of Compliance
