Trade Surveillance for Energy Trading Firms
London, 3-4 May 2017

Day 1 will discuss the different needs and approaches for companies regarding their trade surveillance as there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Crucial questions will be asked and discussed such as how trade surveillance is evolving. Other dialogues will revolve around having the right surveillance, optimising your systems and operational efficiency as a tool for business insight.

The second day will begin by considering the effects regulation has had on the compliance function. This will be followed by a session on data quality and management to examine the right information is being collected. Following on from lunch, we will have a European regulator discussing behavioural analysis and how to ensure all the right procedures are in place in case of a breach. The final session of the course will look at scenario testing with an emphasis on detecting patterns and mapping correlations.
