Ensuring Trust and Regulatory Compliance

S3’s market structure analytics software offers increases transparency into those factors impacting best execution.  The level of transparency provided by the Company’s software solutions provides sell-side clients with a deep level of analytical granularity as they look to achieve the highest degree of execution quality for their customers.

A more complex and fragmented market structure has led to more stringent regulatory protocols, and sell-side firms are now required to provide validation of execution quality and venue analysis under SEC Rules 605, 606, 611 and Regulation SHO.  S3’s interface allows clients to conduct more detailed analysis on those metrics required for reporting, further validating the data that they submit to regulators.

Additionally, S3’s software platform offers analytics that provide transparency and ensure compliance for fixed income securities, which is critical as regulators look have increased their oversight of these markets.  As an independent data provider, S3 delivers third-party trade verification uniquely for each customer, ultimately improving trust in the securities trading industry.
