Trader Surveillance

Recent history is littered with notorious rogue traders who prove that mistakes, corner-cutting, insider trading and malpractice are an undeniable fact of life on the financial markets. Fraudulent trading is not just enormously damaging to a bank's reputation and profitability - as Nick Leeson's behaviour demonstrated, it can bring down the whole organisation.

Yet, while all financial institutions worry about the threat of big losses and bad publicity, they may not be taking the right steps to protect themselves. Standard operational risk measures are only part of the story. Your primary defence should be in monitoring trader behaviour and picking up control breaches that could signal dangerous activity before it snowballs into major loss.

Trader surveillance solutions from SAS let you do just that, pinpointing early unusual behaviour that other systems may miss.

How SAS Can Help

The SAS® Fraud Framework helps you prevent, detect and manage financial crimes across all your trading desks. Our systems tackle fraud from multiple angles so that even the constantly changing tactics of fraudsters are less likely to slip under the radar.


  • We use advanced fraud detection analytics to identify suspicious activity and alert the right people as a matter of course.
  • Our fraud network analysis tools provide early warning of fraud by uncovering hidden links between traders and identifying behavioural patterns that fall outside those pointing to normal operational risks.
  • If fraud is detected, our case management tool helps you investigate, capture and display all relevant information.

This multi-dimensional approach provides a true enterprise-wide trader surveillance solution, extracting and interrogating data from internal sources and external databases. It gives you total flexibility to develop fraud models unique to your institution. And it increases the operational efficiency and cost-effectiveness of your investigations.
