Project Prometheus

The leading trade surveillance software

Reliably identify patterns of insider trading and market manipulation? Our software proves how AI-based trade monitoring works.

The implementation of the trade surveillance software.

Together with SIX Exchange Regulation AG (SER), we have implemented a forward-looking trading surveillance solution.

In the fight against market abuse, many of our customers mention the same need: "We are looking for comprehensive, AI-controlled trading surveillance with a warning system that enables us to quickly and reliably identify signals of market abuse and insider trading." In close cooperation with SER, which monitors the companies listed on the Swiss stock exchange, we took up this customer need and developed and introduced a new trade surveillance software.

The artificial intelligence-based software sets new standards in trading surveillance worldwide and combines data analysis with financial market expertise effectively and efficiently.

This is how Prometheus realizes advantages – also for your organization

Our state-of-the-art, AI-based trading monitoring software has been successfully deployed on the Swiss Stock Exchange since July 2020, where it replaced Nasdaq's SMARTS. Prometheus is superior to other systems because:


Prometheus can be tailored to the unique requirements and monitoring needs of any organization.

Effective and Efficient

Leveraging artificial intelligence, big data and machine learning, Prometheus has maximum impact and enables efficient market surveillance.

Modular and Scalable

From one transaction group or asset class to multiple exchange trading venues, Prometheus is modular and scalable.

Prometheus advances your organization

Reduce false alarms

The trade surveillance software reduces the number of false alarms and increases the proportion of correct-positive reports. This allows your specialists to concentrate on reports that are of suspicious quality.

First in class reporting

The requirements of the regulatory authorities around the world are becoming increasingly demanding. With the trade surveillance software you can master all reporting challenges of MiFID II, MiFIR, FinfraG and Co.

Reduce costs 

The trade surveillance software reduces the number of false alarms and increases the proportion of correct-positive reports. This allows your specialists to concentrate on reports that are of suspicious quality.

Increase efficiency 

The efficient case manager brings transparency to your operating system, providing clear information on the number and severity of cases and the time taken to process alerts.

Knowledge as standard

Handling alerts is labor intensive. With the trade surveillance software, intelligent processes and data-driven decision-making become standard.

Act instead of react

The trade surveillance software identifies activity using high-frequency analysis. This allows your specialists to analyze suspicious transactions more intensively and proactively identify new patterns of abuse.
