Smarts Group, the world leader in real-time market surveillance and operational control for exchanges, regulators and brokers, is pleased to announce the successful go live of the SMARTS® Market Integrity Platform v6.1 at the Malaysian Securities Commission (SC).

Following months of planning, development and rigorous testing, the Malaysian Securities Commission (“SC”) has successfully launched their new surveillance technology to enhance the integrity in the Malaysian marketplace this month. Originally, SC had identified the SMARTS® Integrity Platform v6.1 as the best product to ensure the integrity of its market place after its one month trial evaluation of the system. Their decision tied in with SC’ broader initiative - the Capital Markets MasterPlan - one of the programme’s key goals is improving supervision, surveillance and enforcement to create a capital market that is “supported by a strong and facilitative regulatory framework that enables the capital market to perform its functions effectively and provides a high degree of confidence to its users”.

Smarts Group has worked closely with SC to deliver state-of-the-art market surveillance system to the Malaysian marketplace. The project included design, implementation, training and software licenses. Welcoming the news, Smarts Group’s Head of Global Services and Client Management, Stuart Frith said: “We are extremely pleased with SC’s decision which recognises Smarts Group’s innovation and leadership in the market surveillance domain. By adopting the SMARTS® Integrity Platform v6.1, SC is now in a better position to be able to continue to offer the financial community a credible and safe market for investing in an increasingly competitive market.”

The SC decision further strengthens Smarts Group’s position as the leading provider for real-time security market surveillance and operational control.
