Fingerprint + ISS LiquidMetrix | Partnership Announcement | December 2021
15th December 2021 by Brielle Hewitt
Best of breed technology providers join forces to develop a holistic approach to regulatory supervision and oversight.
Leading provider of TCA, Surveillance, Execution Quality and Pre-Trade analysis services, ISS LiquidMetrix is pleased to announce a strategic partnership and platform integration with leading automated communications monitoring and compliance workflow provider, Fingerprint.
The partnership has been in the works for several months, with both companies running extensive industry consultation to understand the requirements of financial firms around automation and streamlining of processes for trade reconstruction and surveillance, communications monitoring and investigation, and regulatory reporting. What has become clear is that RegTech is providing solutions to many of the problems faced by firms that are striving to run compliant and effective monitoring programmes across the financial industry. Still, there is much room for improvement, particularly around siloed data, disconnected systems and technologies, and workflows and processes made more complicated when using multiple technologies and platforms.
The partnership will provide a solution to many of these problems, beginning with the development of a single sign-on, integrating the structured and unstructured data of both platforms into one cohesive alerting dashboard, giving compliance professionals a powerful holistic overview of their firm’s activities, alerts and case management.
Mark Ford, Managing Director of ISS Liquid Metrix, states:
“We share with our partners at Fingerprint the vision of an integrated and unified platform to provide critical surveillance of structured and unstructured data, and to that end have implemented similar technology decisions in creating these services.
The similarity of our approaches to Surveillance Alerting, Monitoring and Case management will significantly benefit clients with a winning combination of best in-breed Surveillance platforms and a turn-key solution to their most important Surveillance needs“.
As the partnership evolves and the financial industry’s technology requirements become more complex, the partners will work in tandem to create market-leading solutions and a truly holistic, user-centric, supervision platform.
James Hogbin, CEO & Founder states:
“There has been an explosion of data that is now flowing through firms due to the pandemic and the shift to remote working as well as volatile, active markets. Compliance professionals are struggling with workloads, and being asked to do more, with less, all while trying to run effective monitoring programmes, but often being hindered by limited, unfit for purpose systems. Therefore, we are delighted to announce a partnership with ISS Liquid Metrix – our clients and the wider industry are calling out for cohesive, streamlined supervision solutions. We are looking to work with best-of-breed market trade data solution providers, and ISS Liquid Metrix has proved to be a very suitable fit in terms of the user interface, data management, visualisation and reporting. Our approach to the supervision process and workflows is very similar and complementary to one another. We are really excited about the trajectory of this partnership and know this will be a welcome addition to the global RegTech market”.
