FCA Market Abuse Regulation

compliance regulationsStarting July 3rd, 2016  the FCA’s Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) controls for asset managers come into practice. MAR aims to increase integrity and investor protection while creating a level playing field across the EU. With the goal of preventing insider dealing and market manipulations, it is imperative to find a portfolio management system that will allow you access to total transparency and custom reporting.

Sentry PM, our investment management solution, is ready to support our clients within these new regulations. Offering a 360 degree view of all your investments, Sentry PM keeps a full audit of every decision made and supports over 30 different asset types out of the box.

Our pre-trade compliance functionality allows our clients to build simple or complex rules, including a quick way to create and manage lists of restricted securities. Select from multiple rule severity types including ‘four-eyes’ override or a ‘hard block’ stop.

Post-trade statistical analysis is covered by our Report Builder. The builder allows our clients to create reports using any of the 1000+ data points found in the system using an intuitive UI. Combining our data diagnostic tools, email scheduling and custom columns features, a report detailing any price movements outside of set probability ranges can be delivered automatically to your inbox each day.

If your current investment solution is unable to support this important regulation, please contact us to discuss how we can support your business.
