LeapXpert Highly Commended in Regulation Asia Awards for Excellence

Regulation Asia awards

LeapXpert was highly commended in the Market & Trading Surveillance category in the 3rd Regulation Asia Awards for Excellence 2020.

The rise of messenger applications in recent years has presented challenges for financial institutions, particularly when employees use personal messaging for business-related communications. Lost phones, the deletion of communications, and employee departures can all result in the loss of communication records. To guard against these risks, many banks have banned staff from using messaging applications on premise.

LeapXpert CEO receives Regulation Asia Highly Commended Award in the Surveillance and Trading category

LeapXpert takes a different approach, recognizing that messaging apps are here to stay. Its Federated Messaging Orchestration Platform (FMOP) elevates messaging between company employees and their clients to a formal business communication channel, similar to calling and emailing.

The platform can integrate with countless third-party messaging platforms – including recently added SMS – effectively allowing employees to continue to communicate with clients via preferred messaging channels through a desktop platform and or the Leap Work mobile app. Financial institutions retain ownership of communications data for compliance and surveillance purposes, even after employment has ended.

“LeapXpert’s technology addresses key compliance challenges associated with employees using personal messaging apps to communicate with clients,” said one judge on the awards platform. “This is a great technical achievement, and truly innovative. Not only does the preservation of records facilitate trading surveillance, it protects both the firm and its personnel from potential noncompliance with regulatory requirements.”

The FMOP is currently in use at three of the top ten global banks, with tens of thousands of end users. LeapXpert is focused on onboarding financial institutions, law firms, insurance companies, and organizations in the retail and hospitality industries.
