SEC Rule 613 Consolidated Audit Trail (CAT) will see firms implementing new operational, compliance, governance and technology procedures to support the upcoming reporting obligation. The CAT Accelerator tool combines global regulatory reporting technology and regulatory compliance expertise, offering a unique technology solution to aid firms preparing for the CAT regulation. Analyzing the existing reporting infrastructure and running specific data points through a gap analysis and validation engine, firms are able to identify the technical, operational and governance procedures they need to introduce or remodel to meet the CAT reporting obligation.

The CAT Accelerator tool is designed to help firms get their data, systems and reports ready for the Consolidated Audit Trail through award winning regulatory technology.

The tool supports the input of Order Audit Trail data (OATs) and CAT data that is validated against the CAT reporting specification for any discrepancies. This iterative, fully audited project tool generates a series of reports that dictate the percentage readiness of the firm inline with the CAT reporting obligation. As industry specifications update, the tool follows suit and allows firms to revalidate their data for completeness and accuracy against the latest version of the CAT specification. Firms can push exceptions through a case management workflow that provides accountability and visibility of the data mapping and validation exercise.

The CAT Accelerator tool rapidly assesses trade lifecycle and customer data from your existing reports against CAT requirements and identifies a prioritized set of data gaps by domain.
