The Solution

Validus monitors, tracks and analyzes trade flows and financial risk in real time and on a T+1 basis to maximize efficiencies in clients’ regulatory/compliance operations and lower total cost of ownership. It employs robotic process automation (RPA), including machine learning, to escalate only the most actionable alerts for further investigation, enabling clients to reduce response times and avoid time-wasting chases.

Secret Sauce

The Validus platform combines RPA analytics―providing transparency and flexibility to dynamically deploy and adapt them―with procedural automation, preserving information for regulatory/supervisory review and pattern/practice analysis. This foundation provides clients with auditability for answering regulators’ inquiries in a supportable, easily understood fashion.
