KRM22 is pleased to announce a partnership with First International Bank of Israel (FIBI), with the implementation of KRM22 Market Surveillance product. This go live is further evidence of our strategy of providing global, cross asset trade and order surveillance.

Market surveillance is an ongoing challenge for firms. KRM22 Market Surveillance software is used by exchanges, regulators, buy and sell side firms globally, to monitor for market abuse and to carry out a range of data analytics. Our service provides a unique level of insight and context allowing clients to efficiently monitor their business and manage regulatory obligations with confidence.

This will be KRM22’s first go-live in Israel, aided by the partnership with STP House; a financial messaging boutique, focusing on back-office solutions. KRM22 and FIBI have worked closely to implement all 11new controls of the Israeli Securities Authority, a rare achievement for providers in this region.

Daniel Langley, Head of Compliance at KRM22 says: “We are delighted to welcome First International Bank of Israel to the growing KRM22 surveillance community and thanks STP house - our business and delivery partner in Israel - to enable it. We at KRM22 are excited to be helping Israeli banks to adopt and be ready to embrace the changing world of regulation”.

KRM22 solution has impressed us in terms of BI capabilities, non-intrusiveness, richness of operation and analytics and ease of implementation. Being represented in Israel by STP house, FIBI will benefit from the most advanced data surveillance technology as well as local support. These considerations triggered our decision to adopt KRM22 already in 2021”.
