NICE Actimize Enhances SURVEIL-X Holistic Trade Surveillance Solution with Self-Service Analytics for Custom Risk Detection

Sponsored by Businesswire

In the world of financial services, regulations and business risks are constantly evolving. Surveillance models that get the job done today could be out-of-date tomorrow, potentially exposing firms to fines and reputational damage. To address this challenge, NICE Actimize, a NICE (Nasdaq: NICE) business and the leader in Autonomous Financial Crime Management, has introduced an enhancement to its SURVEIL-X Holistic Trade Surveillance solution that provides self-service analytics, called SURVEIL-X Studio. This all-in-one approach enables Financial Services Organizations (FSOs) to rapidly create, test and deploy custom analytic risk detection models.

Instead of wasting time coding, and sourcing and scrubbing data, business analysts who use SURVEIL-X Studio can focus their expertise on creating risk models to close coverage gaps and solve complex compliance challenges. Non-technical business analysts can effortlessly create models using SURVEIL-X Studio’s drag-and-drop interface, choosing from an expansive library of customizable templates or easily building their own rules from scratch.

SURVEIL-X Studio also features built-in integrations to data services (including trading data and market data), and common business functions and calculations (including currency conversions and market trends).

Chris Wooten, Executive Vice President, NICE, stated, “Today, many firms are attempting to plug surveillance gaps with in-house solutions or by mixing and matching out-of-the-box products from different technology providers. These temporary measures don’t provide complete coverage and may force analysts to work in silos which can be risky, costly and time consuming. With SURVEIL-X Studio, NICE Actimize has leveraged decades of experience to create an all-in-one, self-service analytics solution tailored to the needs of financial services organizations. Firms get complete surveillance coverage without the added costs, hassles and limitations of in-house or multi-vendor solutions.”

Using SURVEIL-X Studio, testing and implementing risk models is fast, easy and seamless; business analysts can deploy rules into tests and promote them to production with a single click with fully auditable, built-in change control processes guiding them every step of the way. Additionally, once rules are deployed into production, all alerts are delivered to analysts on the same ActOne case management platform, for a consistent, seamless user experience. ActOne’s rich visual alerting capabilities provide comprehensive graphical representations of all detected risks, along with detailed timelines of events and explanations of alerts, leveraging a broad range of risk factors, including communications, trades and more.

SURVEIL-X Studio is part of NICE Actimize’s SURVEIL-X, the industry’s first AI-powered, cloud-native, true holistic surveillance solution. SURVEIL-X detects all forms of risky behavior to ensure compliance with key global regulations, including MiFID II, Dodd-Frank, MAR, Regulation Best Interest and others. SURVEIL-X offers unparalleled risk coverage for buy- and sell-side firms, insurance companies, crypto exchanges, regulators and more by enabling accurate detection and rapid, thorough investigation of market abuse, inappropriate sales practices, conduct risk and other undetectable compliance risks to insulate firms from fines and reputational damage.
