  • Redkite's expertise in front office trading practices and technology enables rapid deployment with minimal IT investment while providing real-time, intraday surveillance analytics.
  • This move supports customers' initiatives for lowering total cost of ownership and deployment timeframes via direct integration with front-office systems with choice of cloud, on-premise or hybrid deployment.
  • The combined solution will leverage unparalleled market expertise in both trading operations and compliance practices to deliver a best-of-breed analytical superset covering equities, fixed income and futures compliance.
  • This combination merges NICE Actimize's tier one on-premise expertise with Redkite's innovative cloud approach to produce the trade compliance industry's broadest trade compliance offering that serves financial institutions of all sizes.

NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) today announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Redkite Financial Markets, an emerging provider of real-time, cloud-based institutional trade surveillance solutions.
