UnaVista Transaction Intelligence Solution

UnaVista Transaction Intelligence

UnaVista has developed a suite of services to enable firms to derive additional value from their reported data. UnaVista’s Transaction Intelligence is a 3-module analytics solution that applies surveillance patterns to reported data to help firms proactively detect data quality issues and monitor for suspicious transactions.

The T+1 alerting service uses the existing MiFIR transactional data firms have reported to UnaVista’s ARM, ensuring clients have no additional set up or requirement to send additional data. The solution will be phased in starting with Reporting Quality Alerts, then Anti-Money Laundering and Market Abuse Alerts and finally, Behavioural Alerts. The solution will evolve to accommodate other regulations including EMIR, SFTR, global derivative reporting and other regulations reportable through UnaVista’s platform.

In addition to alerting, users get a workflow that allows the alerts to be tracked while under investigation with an audited timeline. Based on client feedback in Europe and the US, we will also be offering the opportunity for Order alerts. To find out more about Market Abuse Regulation (MAR), visit our MAR regulation page
