On March 23, 2015, Waters assembled a panel of experts to discuss the business and compliance benefits that stand to be realized through the deployment of big data technologies and platforms, especially with respect to how they might assist broker-dealers comply with Rule 613 in the US.
Big-data technologies are not new to the capital markets by any means. In fact, buy-side and sell-side firms have been using such tools for the past five years to help them assimilate, process and analyze ever increasing volumes of structured and unstructured data for a range of functions including risk management and trading-related tasks.
But harnessing big-data technologies on the regulatory front to help broker-dealers comply with the ever-expanding universe of regulations that impact their day-to-day operations ─ like Rule 613 pertaining to the Consolidated Audit Trail in the US ─ is anything but commonplace. And while US-based broker-dealers might be at the forefront of this new drive, similar such requirements are likely to impact capital markets firms in other locations, including those of the UK and Western European markets.
