SunGard Named Regulatory Advisory Firm of the Year by Energy Risk
May 23, 2012 — Houston, TX
SunGard’s energy consulting services practice has been named “Regulatory Advisory Firm of the Year” by Energy Risk Magazine. This distinction recognizes both SunGard’s deep consulting expertise and unique transaction monitoring and surveillance service offering. Driven by heightened oversight by regulators and shareholders, companies are increasingly looking to trade surveillance services to help mitigate risk that could undermine market confidence and capital adequacy.
SunGard’s transaction monitoring and surveillance service is an analytical and advisory offering that addresses external regulatory requirements and internal controls. It helps companies improve posture with regulators through greater transparency, and provides a tool to mitigate risk associated with undesirable trading practices and behaviors. The consulting service also provides insights into trading activities that a company may not otherwise notice through legacy risk reporting methods.
“Greater regulatory scrutiny and the need for more transparency into trading activity to identify potential trouble spots is fueling the need for innovative services such as SunGard’s trade surveillance and monitoring service,” says Stella Farrington, editor, Energy Risk.
“SunGard’s unique transaction monitoring and surveillance service can help companies eliminate the need to implement and build complex trade surveillance systems,” said Austin Morris, global managing partner for SunGard’s Global Services, Energy and Utilities practice. “SunGard’s transaction monitoring and surveillance service helps lower the initial cost of compliance. SunGard is also working with customers to implement these custom trade surveillance algorithms, reports and processes into their own risk management and compliance frameworks. We’re pleased to receive this honor and to be recognized as an innovative, forward thinking advisory firm.”
