Red Box integrates with Cloud9 to deliver a comprehensive compliance offering for voice trading



Red Box has extended the breadth of its voice capture capability through an integration with Cloud9’s cloud based trader voice communications platform, C9 Trader. Cloud9 has recently been named to the Fintech 250 acknowledging the firm’s technology within the voice trading industry.

The Red Box offering with Cloud9’s C9 Trader desktop – available now as part of its 4C release — also incorporates seamless integration with compliance archiving and analytics tools, opening up the potential for organisations to audit 100 percent of calls and unlock valuable business insight.

With integration to Red Box, Cloud9 expands its call recording and archiving options for its customers. Cloud9 is committed to interoperating with major systems across the trader workflow to support efficiency and information generation.

Cloud9 developed a solution that harnesses the voice communication talk path for the trading floor of the future, offering more functionality and analytic insight than legacy hardware at a fraction of the cost. Cloud9 connects counterparties across all asset classes via a cloud-based communication platform that eliminates the infrastructure and expense associated with legacy hardware and telecommunication based solutions, with front-office focused data and transcription, purpose-built for the financial markets.

Regulations such as Dodd-Frank in the U.S. and MiFID II in Europe require investment firms to keep complete records of trade-related communications and provide them to the regulator if requested.

Built on Red Box’s comprehensive open API architecture, the Cloud9 integration extends the range of platforms Red Box integrates with, ensuring all records are in one place and making it faster and easier to reconstruct trades.

“As Cloud9 has evolved its services, we have continued to expand the possible options our customers have to meet and exceed their regulatory obligations. We are pleased to take part in the integration with Red Box because it now offers many of our common customers an additional choice for voice trading archiving and analytics,” said Stephen Kammerer, chief product officer at Cloud9 Technologies. “Red Box’s open API philosophy is in line with our own, ensuring customer sovereignty over their captured voice data and seamless integration with best-in-class data and analytics providers to enable advanced compliance, trade reconstruction, and surveillance.”

“Financial services organisations need a way to capture all communications around a trade so that events can be quickly and easily reconstructed if requested by the regulators,” said Pete Ellis, chief product officer of Red Box. “Voice remains a key communication method in a trading environment and conversations will be taking place across multiple platforms; cloud-based and traditional telephony systems, or mobile phones – all of which can be captured in one place by Red Box.”
