Contextual surveillance. Insightful analytics.


Ancoa provides contextual surveillance and insightful analytics for exchanges, regulators, buy & sell-side firms. Our highly sophisticated, yet easy to deploy and simple to use, monitoring and surveillance platform helps firms take full control of their regulatory, reputational and operational risks across markets, functions and asset classes. We help improve market integrity by providing greater visibility over trading behaviour. Our independent and real-time approach to monitoring, analytics, alerting and reporting, across structured and unstructured datasets and using powerful visualisation tools, enables firms to identify and manage potential risks of market abuse, fraud and operational shortcomings on a single platform.

  • Monitoring & Actionable Alerts
Ancoa is designed to provide actionable, contextual insights for firms seeking to introduce a rigorous approach to market surveillance. We help reduce and manage risks of potential insider trading, front-running, wash trading and market manipulation practices. We do this by contextualising structured data feeds, real-time and historical trading information with unstructured datasets, such as financial news and electronic communications (email, instant messaging, voice communications and social media interactions).
  • Cohesive approach to managing risk

Ancoa’s surveillance platform helps build greater cohesion and collaboration between a firm’s trading, compliance and operations functions by identifying blind spots between the three functions and turning the intelligence gained into trading and operational advantages. With a contextual approach to surveillance that includes e-comms monitoring, Ancoa's platform easily integrates disparate datasets to provide a single, centralised view of potential market abuse risks.

  • High speed, high volume analytics

Able to process and analyse multi-asset, multi-market structured and unstructured datasets, the Ancoa platform readily adapts to changing market conditions and data inputs. Insights gained from greater visibility over trading behaviour and multiple communication channels, including electronic communications, ensures clients meet their regulatory requirements with confidence.

  • Scalable technology & smooth deployment

The Ancoa platform offers a highly cost effective approach to deployment, designed to help firms reduce the total cost of ownership. Firms can elect for cloud, on-premise or hybrid installation using independent subscription based services or by taking an enterprise wide platform approach. Whichever approach is preferred, customers benefit from a standard integration point for e-comms analysis.

  • Flexible query tools

The historical data audit trail of 5 or more years of historical data is very accessible. Users can launch queries on large datasets (multi-petabytes of data) from an intuitive graphical interface using pre-defined reports and queries, or manually enter boolean queries through AQL. Powerful search functions can be enabled to sift through emails, voice transcripts, instant messaging and social media interactions.

  • Alerts & reports libraries

Alerts cover all typical market abuse, operational outliers and general market fluctuations. Standard and ad-hoc reports are available as modules without the need to upgrade the software, for activities such as insider trading, volatility, spread, order-to-trade ratio, minimum holding-time, market maker obligations, trader activity and security activity.
