MiFID II Update

The Market in Financial Instruments Directive II (MiFID II) will come into effect on 3 January 2018.

MiFID II will generate new requirements relating to the recording, storing and monitoring of telephone conversations and electronic communications. Personnel currently exempt from the requirement to be recorded will fall under the new regulations, including IFAs and some support as well as customer-facing employees. All recordings will need to be archived for longer.

The changes require that anyone involved in giving financial advice that leads to – or may lead to – a transaction must record their conversations and securely store these communications for at least five years.  The new regulation also encompasses calls made on mobile phones.

The delay in implementing MiFID ll from 2017 to 2018 is an opportunity for users to test the solution before the deployment deadline.

If you believe your business will be impacted by the new regulations, give us a call.  We can help you achieve the required standards in a flexible and scalable manner.  With over 20 years’ experience in the provision and deployment of compliance call recording solutions within the Financial Sector, we can build a solution to meet your current and future needs.  Let our expertise become your resource.

Our latest deployment of is currently being prepared for shipping to . Wherever you need Trader Voice equipment and support, we can deliver.

August 2016

Our rollout of Speakerbus trader turrets to a client with offices in Moscow, Cyprus, New York and London is now complete.  As part of our service, we've provided a hot-swap turret to each location and are providing first-line administration training to designated personnel.  The user is now looking into the legacy circuits they had in place as the architecture of the Speakerbus system means that many of the expensive dedicated "private" circuits can be networked to multiple endpoints in a far more cost-effective manner. Initial calculations show that this client will be able to save UK£25,000 per annum on duplicated private wires, meaning that the new system will almost pay for itself over its lifecycle. 

MAY 2016

The first phase of our 4-country deployment of Speakerbus Trader Turrets went live over the weekend in London.  The system replaces a much older BT ITS system in London and an IPC system in Moscow.

Thanks to the hard work of the engineering team, everything went without a hitch - and we're now shipping the pre-programmed systems to New York, Moscow and Cyprus for installation over the course of the next few weeks.

Extra:  Our engineers just had one of the traders give him a call to say he "Loves" his new Turret.  

APRIL 2016

Our latest compliance call recording installation for 300 users went live over the weekend. The project was undertaken in collaboration with our service delivery partners Sinclair Voicenet.  
Users include IPC Trader Turrets and Cisco back office with full redundancy supplied and installed with a fixed cost 5-year support contract.
