Waters Technology Webcast: Risk and Reward

Featuring Bill Nosal, Head of Product Management, SMARTS
Broker Compliance and Surveillance, Nasdaq

Questions of extraterritoriality, market surveillance and the role of technology when it comes to dealing with new regulation, took precedence during a recent Waters webcast on the topic, along with elements of risk introduced by the sheer number of new rules that firms are expected to comply with.
By James Rundle

Topics covered by the webcast:

  • The ways in which firms are challenged by the frequency of new regulation, and the number of different directions it is coming from, along with short timeframes for compliance.
  • The role of technology in managing this global reform, from swaps reform through to market surveillance and other areas.
  • Managing the risk of regulatory arbitrage, and debating questions over more harmonized approaches to global regulation.
  • How vendors, institutions and regulators can work more closely with one another to reduce the risks inherent in non-compliance, particularly in fragmented regulatory environments such as the ones international firms operate in.
