LONDON – 7 March 2024: ION, a leading global provider of mission-critical trading and workflow automation and risk management software to financial institutions that deal in asset management, cleared derivatives, equities, fixed income, foreign exchange, and secured funding, announces that ION LookOut has been named “Best Solution for Records Retention” by RegTech Insight Awards APAC 2024.

The RegTech Insight Awards APAC, hosted by A-Team Group, recognize established and innovative newcomers providing RegTech solutions that help firms respond to evolving and ever more complex regulatory requirements across the global financial services industry. LookOut, developed by LIST – an ION company – is a multi-asset solution for record-keeping to which users can add market surveillance, regulatory reporting, and business analytics. The solution’s rich functionality – relied on for data collection, storage, retrieval, and analysis by buy-side and sell-side firms and trading venues – earned it the top honors.

By design, LookOut is a robust, reliable, and flexible buy-and-sell-side solution, prioritizing data quality enforcement during collection, data validation, easy integration, and correlation across multiple sources. The solution offers accurate reporting of information and comprehensive detection of abusive behavior. It navigates all major regulatory landscapes and complies with the retention and reporting obligations of MiFID2/MiFIR, EMIR, DFA, REMIT, SFTR, MMSR, and HKMA.

“Naming LookOut as the Best Solution for Records Retention reflects ION’s commitment to delivering innovative solutions to meet our customers’ evolving needs,” said Alvise Insalaco, Chief Executive Officer: LIST. “We are proud that the LIST-developed solution can cope with the unprecedented growth in new trading regulations over the past few years.”

“We are thrilled that LookOut has been honored for its exceptional record retention,” said Mirko Marcadella, Chief Product and Marketing Officer: LIST. “The solution can process large amounts of data and offers a workflow management system with built-in connectivity for reporting entities and National Competent Authorities.”
