Former AUSTRAC CIO to head market surveillance unit

Graham Jordi, the former AUSTRAC CIO who helped build the national anti money laundering monitoring system, has been appointed head of SMARTS Market Surveillance.

SMARTS is an Australian company which has developed market surveillance systems for more than 40 exchanges and regulators worldwide, as well as information systems being used by 100 brokers internationally. The organisation is one of several now beating a path to the Australian Securities and Investment Commission’s door as ASIC prepares to take over market surveillance from the Australian Stock Exchange by October next year.

In April this year SMARTS’ market integrity platform was selected by the London Stock Exchange for its Baikal pan-European non display trading market, a so called dark-pool trading environment.

After leaving the CIO role at AUSTRAC for a series of international management roles with Virgin Mobile, Jordi returned to AUSTRAC in 2006 as general manager of reform for the organisation as it morphed into a full time regulator and financial intelligence unit focussed on sniffing out money laundering and counter terrorism financing activities.

Jordi has been working with SMARTS in a consulting role since February and today formally joins the company in Sydney as executive general manager.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
