Regulatory Compliance with kdb+

A global investment bank engaged Version 1 to design a post-trade kdb+ data equities analytics platform.

Given the new regulations introduced under MiFID II, the customer had to ensure that their equities trading applications were compliant. They needed to enhance their mature, multi-layered analytics platform to provide an increased level of post-trade transparency, storing more detailed order and execution data with a focus on maximising timestamp precision throughout the orders’ lifecycles.
