S3 Unveils Enhanced Regulatory Reporting Suite

S3 announced upgraded capabilities for its regulatory reporting suite. The company now provides customers with regulatory reporting information necessary to comply with proposed enhancements to SEC Rule 606 as well as detailed analysis for the upcoming FINRA Tick Size Pilot Program, adding to its regulatory reporting and best execution analytics tools. The Suite provides detailed analysis for multiple asset classes and regulatory reporting requirements, allowing its customers to holistically monitor the entire market and remain fully compliant with financial market regulations. S3’s fully customizable platform offers exhaustive analytical capabilities providing market surveillance, best execution insight, order routing analysis, and more for both retail and institutional firms across multiple asset classes. The company provides seamless reporting for SEC Rules 605, 606 and 611, as well as for regulation SHO, and has enhanced its monitoring and alerting functionality specifically for Rule 606 given the SEC’s recently proposed amendments to that rule. Additionally, the company is currently augmenting the Suite to offer detailed execution quality and venue analysis data for child orders composing institutional parent orders, information that brokers would be required to divulge under the proposed updates to Rule 606 and that has many additional applications for market structure insight. These amendments also include more detailed retail order routing reports, and through its Regulatory Reporting Suite S3 offers further clarity into retail orders executed by broker-dealers, allowing them to prove best execution and other data points required for reporting to the SEC.

S3 Launches Fixed Income Execution Quality Suite

S3 announced that the company provides customized solutions to monitor and analyze trade execution, announced the launch of its Fixed Income Execution Quality Suite (“the Suite”). The company now provides insight into those factors impacting best execution in the fixed income market, in addition to the equities and options analysis capabilities that S3 has offered for years. The Fixed Income Execution Quality Suite provides a complete analysis of execution quality for corporate, municipal and TRACE eligible agency bond trades. While the use of new technology, including electronic trading systems, continues to increase for fixed income securities, trading still occurs primarily over-the-counter through individual dealers. With this decentralized market, along with the fragmentation in the electronic trading systems, the transparency provided by S3’s Suite is essential for clients to provide and prove best execution. The platform incorporates data from a variety of sources, including TRACE, EMMA, evaluated prices and market maker quotes. The Suite simplifies the compliance process and validates the execution data that clients submit to regulators. FINRA, MSRB and other entities are increasing their oversight of the fixed income markets in an effort to bring further transparency to these historically opaque securities. Firms are now required to provide data proving that their fixed income trades benefit customer order flow and meet best execution obligations. This has become even more crucial in recent years given the increase in the number of available venues for fixed income trading, including automated trading systems and other electronic platforms, which has added new layers of complexity to these markets. The Suite allows S3’s clients to compile a robust audit trail to prove that their orders are executed to the greatest benefit of their customers, ensuring full compliance with execution quality regulations.
