Euronext Surveillance

Maximising your insight into real-time trading behaviour

As a regulated Exchange, you know the importance of surveillance in running an orderly market. Available as an optional module, Euronext Surveillance is pre-configured with alerts we have developed for some of Europe’s biggest markets.

Recognising the need for flexibility, Euronext Surveillance also enables your own compliance team to configure new alerts and reports, without IT development.
