The institutional marketplace is gravitating towards a more digitally-advanced ecosystem which is requiring greater technology sophistication and, in turn, more stringent data security and regulation parameters. As traders become more comfortable working remotely, accessibility to robust sets of voice metadata for both strategic and regulatory reporting purposes will be very important. In Episode 2 of the Cloud9 podcast series, Cloud9 CTO and Co-Founder Leo Papadopoulos and SteelEye CEO Matt Smith discuss how the partnership that their companies recently announced addresses these concerns and why it’s so important for firms to equip themselves with the proper security and regulatory reporting tools during this transitional period.
