Personal Account Dealings Automation Tool - Easy supervision of employee transactions

Automated processing of duplicates

Your challenge regarding the processing of duplicates

Supervision of employee transactions

Banks and asset managers are required to review the securities transactions of certain employees for legality with regard to insider trading prohibitions and market abuse regulations. For this purpose, employees often choose a duplicates procedure. In this procedure, the custodian bank or broker sends a duplicate of all securities receipts to the compliance department of the bank or asset manager where the respective person is employed. Upon receipt of the duplicate, the bank or asset manager - on the basis of the information contained in the duplicate - carries out the prescribed checks on employee transactions.

Manual process

The process for monitoring employee transactions by the compliance department is currently mostly a manual process. The information relevant for the monitoring of employee transactions is often typed manually from the duplicates received directly into the existing compliance tool to assess the legality of the transactions. The manual entry can have the following negative effects on the bank or asset manager:

  1. Repetitive and time-consuming process ties up valuable resources
  2. Increased error rate during manual entry impairs data quality
  3. Media break between physical documents and digital compliance tool results in increased administration and archiving effort

More efficient design necessary

By integrating a digital solution, the effort of manual typing including physical archiving can be significantly reduced, thus streamlining the entire process of monitoring employee transactions

Our solution - Increased efficiency through automated read out of securities receipts

PwC has developed the Personal Account Dealings Automation (PADA) Tool that digitally reads duplicates of securities documents and can automatically import the extracted information into existing compliance tools of banks or asset managers. The process of manually reading duplicates is thus automated, making it much easier to monitor employee transactions. The automation results in the following added value for the bank or asset manager:


Automation of the readout process of duplicates and the import of information relevant for monitoring employee transactions into the existing compliance tool ensure increased data quality by reducing errors.
