Following TradeLog’s launch in Denmark and Norway two years ago, Euronext has now made the software available to companies across Europe. Users in selected geographies will be able to connect the software to custody accounts and automatically monitor employee trading. The same model has seen success in Denmark and Norway through Euronext’s own CSDs, Euronext Securities Copenhagen and Euronext Securities Oslo.
Even in geographies where connection to custody accounts isn’t available, the platform can still be used as an employee trading monitoring tool that allows companies to automate pre-clearance for employees’ personal trading, states Euronext in a press release.
The software is designed to give a detailed view of employee transactions and holdings, as well as gather all employee consents to policies in one place. Companies will no longer have to manually check every individual’s prospective trades, as the system will ensure that every trade is in line with internal policies and regulations before pre-clearance.
The exchange claims that TradeLog can also function as a compliance tool for the European Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) and the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II (MiFID II).
