The webinar discusses perspectives, ideas and actionable steps to help optimise firms' approaches to energy trade surveillance, assess and respond to new compliance demands driven by regulators or internal policies.
Increasingly, banks, hedge funds and energy trading companies have come under heavy scrutiny by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the Commodities Futures Trading Commission and the Financial Services Authority. Regulations such as the Energy Policy Act 2005, the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 and the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive empowered regulators to apply intense financial and criminal penalties.
Through case law and settlements, regulatory agencies have sent a clear message for firms that trade physical and financial energy products to intensify trade monitoring initiatives and ensure a culture of compliance prevails throughout their organisation.
A rigorous approach to monitoring and surveillance of trading activity that generates meaningful alerts, enables efficient investigation and analysis, and streamlines the ongoing management and reporting of relevant information is key to a firm's ability to meet more stringent regulatory expectations and achieve an operating environment that protects the firm's reputation and customers.
