We work with financial institutions to stop rogue traders and other employees from engaging in activities that endanger our financial system.

what we do

Signac partners with financial institutions to strengthen employee supervision, reduce operational risk, and make our financial system safer.

We deliver software that spots risk in mountains of data, helping institutions identify suspicious activity for further investigation. Our financial markets and controls expertise is codified in our products and shared with our customers. 

Powerful Software

Our cutting-edge data foundation connects disparate data, like trade, behavioral, and risk data, for a holistic view of every trader. We identify toxic combinations signaling events indicative of unauthorized activity and create algorithms to spot outliers that inform when employee behavior needs further review.

Industry Experience

Our deep knowledge of financial markets allows us to design custom programs to help banks detect fraudulent behavior. And our independent investigative unit has expertise in spotting unauthorized trading patterns across institutions and uses an innovative approach to test controls.

Comprehensive Approach

We combine our powerful software and industry expertise to facilitate risk detection, conduct special investigations, and ensure banks have comprehensive checks and balances in place to catch fraudulent activity. We use our technology and experience to help institutions measure risk in a standardized way and promote accountability among employees. 

our process

Signac combines powerful software and industry expertise to cover the five steps of employee oversight: synthesize, alert, investigate, escalate, report.

01

synthesize

We integrate mountains of disparate data from disconnected, legacy IT systems, remove obvious noise, and model the data in a meaningful and holistic way so it is ripe for analysis.

02

alert

Using rules and algorithmic clustering, we surface data indicative of suspicious behavior, proactively notify those responsible, and prompt them to review the alerts and take action.

03

investigate

Our investigative unit conducts thematic reviews, examines suspicious activity and conducts incident-related activities. We then use the findings to strengthen controls.

04

escalate

We give analysts the tools they need to surface problematic behavior to senior leadership, allowing institutions to implement strong, top-down risk governance practices.

05

report

We give institutions a near real-time view of their aggregate risk and risks within specific organizations, enabling transparency, oversight, and easy reporting to regulators.

Next Step

who we are

Our team of engineers, data analysts, and financial industry experts designs transformative solutions based on their cross-industry and cross-institution knowledge.

We combine innovative tech and banking expertise to help financial institutions catch bad apples. Collectively we've monitored and detected a variety of rogue trading methods and other fraudulent behavior across multiple institutions. We come from diverse and varied backgrounds, but we’re all passionate about making our financial system safer.
