SPi Global’s Research and Email Classification Service Can Help

New Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) regulations mean firms that receive research via email could be putting themselves at a major compliance risk. Using Natural Language Processing algorithms and predefined business rules, SPi Global’s technology is able to classify email content received and evaluate it for potential inducements. This significantly reduces email-based inducements and allows investment professionals the confidence they are being compliant.
