  • Bequant is integrating both transaction surveillance and market surveillance for the exchange and prime brokerage sides of its business. The partnership will help Bequant pursue its license in Malta, said COO Sergiu Frasineanu.

    “This type of risk monitoring is critical for any exchange trying to be regulated,” Frasineanu said.

    Bequant also contributed to the development of a code of conduct for market integrity led by Solidus Labs and Global Digital Finance, a digital currency advocacy group.
