Even with the lockdown slowly lifting worldwide, employees are still expected to avoid non-essential movement, which includes rushing back to bustling fully staffed Trading floors.
Working from home for many voice traders has become the norm, and this trend is set to continue, at least until a miracle vaccine is formulated and administered on a large enough scale.
Who would have thought that in just a few months, the tight grip of Risk Management including, government-imposed voice recording and surveillance methods throughout fixed central office environments, would overnight, shift focus to the home office?
How have banks been able to navigate the challenges of staying compliant?
Firms are still obliged to follow FCA guidelines and take all reasonable steps to record voice conversations, and this could include Private Wires, Intercom calls as well as traditional Telephone calls.
But suddenly the compliant recorded Dealerboards and Intercoms they rely upon every day were locked away in virtually abandoned downtown offices.
Any replacement solution used had to be smart, straightforward and secure. Speakerbus' innovative web browser-based Soft Client ARIA met this requirement.
ARIA is the result of a highly-focused research and development project sponsored by a UK Government Innovation Grant specifically to showcase and fast-track technological innovation. Now in its fourth year of development, the Pandemic has highlighted the importance of flexible remote voice trading. The platform mirrors existing user profiles and compliance policies, reducing roll-out time and clients' exposure to latent Market Abuse.
