Financial Tracking Technologies Offers Insider Trading Back Testing Service

Financial Tracking Technologies, LLC announced a service for back testing trade data to help detect illegal insider trading. ITD Lookback™ enables legal, risk and compliance groups to back test employee trades, company proprietary trades or discretionary trades for clients, or combination, against its database of market moving issuer events currently used in its single stream risk and compliance platform. With a single data file upload, ITD Lookback™ automatically analyzes and flags trades ahead of or beside market moving issuer events or news, or both. It also checks for loss avoidance trading, also illegal if based on material non-public information. Lookback™ relieves compliance and risk groups, along with consultants and counsel, of the arduous and daunting task of the error prone, manual process and cost of gathering and analyzing data.

"The SEC essentially continues to set new records in insider trading cases, cases in general and fines and disgorgements. With over $3 billion of fines and disgorgements in its last fiscal year alone, there seems to be no end in sight to regulatory record setting activity” said William D’Amore, senior product administrator. “Examiners seemingly look at years of historical trades in great detail, and for a variety of reasons, with insider trading undoubtedly being one of them. In many cases, companies have no idea what really lies deep within their trading data,” he said. Now companies of all types can test historical trades against Financial Tracking’s domestic, international or global proprietary databases.
