Eventus Systems wins 2020 Markets Choice Award for Best in RegTech – Surveillance and Financial Risk Management

Markets Media award is latest in series of award wins, recognitions


AUSTIN, Texas, May 14, 2020 – Eventus Systems, Inc., a leading global trade surveillance and risk management software platform provider, today won Markets Media’s 2020 Markets Choice Award (MCA) for Best in RegTech – Surveillance and Financial Risk Management. Eventus earned the honor for its leadership among providers of regulatory technology (RegTech) solutions in the financial industry.

The eighth annual MCAs identify and recognize “the best companies, individuals and innovation in financial markets” and “cover the most important sectors of institutional trading and technology – buy-side traders; sell-side execution desks; exchanges and platforms; incumbent technology providers and emerging fintech firms.” Markets Media said the methodology for selecting winners is “simple yet thorough, and keeps the focus on the most important opinions: those of market participants.” Following public online polling about the shortlist in each category, Markets Media determines winners from online responses, editorial interviews with leaders in financial markets and consultation with its MCA Advisory Board.

Enhancing technology, adapting new markets, building new functionality

Eventus CEO Travis Schwab said: “It’s truly gratifying and humbling to receive this award for innovation and excellence in RegTech within our field of surveillance and financial risk management, particularly with a selection process that involves market participants. As we continue to build on our extraordinary team of talented professionals and grow our customer base in the U.S., Europe and Asia, we are keenly aware of the important role our technology plays in our clients’ operations. That means we’re constantly enhancing the technology, adapting it to new markets and building new functionality to address evolving regulatory requirements.”

John D’Antona, Jr., Editor of Traders Magazine, said: “In the five years since its founding, Eventus has evolved from a scrappy startup focusing on U.S. equities into a powerful disruptor in RegTech, with a now global offering surveilling not just equities, but also options, futures, fixed income, foreign exchange and digital assets. The firm combines the best of modern technology with deep market experience and a commitment to client-driven development and exceptional customer service, and it has become the gold standard for surveillance, compliance and risk management in capital markets. Eventus incorporates AI and machine learning into a seamless package so clients can dig deeper and operate in a far more efficient manner.”
