Regulators use Big Data to turn up enforcement heat
Over 100 people attended our SIFMA/Bates Group Leaders and Experts Forum in New York City last Thursday: “Successfully Managing Regulatory Investigations and Enforcement Matters in the New Regulatory Landscape and Big Data Age.” InvestmentNews caught up with Bates Director of Institutional & Complex Litigation Alex Russell concerning the growing use of big data and data analytics to drive regulatory enforcement, a topic of great interest at the Forum. It was addressed by our distinguished panelists (incluing Bates Experts Shane Shook and Rajeev Bhattacharya), and also by Michael Osnato, the recently departed SEC Enforcement Chief of the Complex Financial Instruments Unit, during a fireside chat. Big Data Forum speaker Katherine McGrail (Partner, Murphy & McGonigle) was also interviewed for the article.
