SunGard’s Protegent suite of compliance solutions supports financial services firms’ efforts in managing the temporary, emergency short-selling ban enacted by the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) on the shares of more than 800 financial companies. Current Protegent customers are already equipped to rapidly comply with the order and closely monitor short selling trends of employees. The latest release of Protegent PTA, an employee trading and code of ethics compliance solution, provides rule logic to help firms monitor and prevent short selling of securities of the publicly-traded financial services firms on the SEC’s list. Protegent PTA’s new “Restricted List by Activity Type” rule logic, as well as its existing short selling rule, helps firms to prevent the short selling of these securities. SunGard is providing a restricted list of the included financial firms to customers of the latest version of Protegent PTA that can easily be uploaded into the application, as well as issuing step-by-step documentation on how to configure, test, and implement the rule. Protegent Trading Compliance also provides the tools to monitor, research, and react to regulatory inquiries in a timely fashion.
