Trade Forensics

Throughout the world, financial institutions and other corporations of all sizes are increasingly being presented with complex challenges associated with fraudulent and other illegal conduct from within their organizations. Monument Economics Group provides financial, regulatory, and trade forensics consulting solutions to financial institutions and other corporations who face regulatory and compliance challenges as a result of participating in capital markets. These consulting solutions include in-depth review and analysis of clients’ data, technology, processes and procedures, and program management.

MEG’s team of data science investigators and former financial regulators are ready to help clients direct and respond to complex investigations. Our practitioner-led forensics team combines diverse sources of structured and unstructured, quantitative and qualitative data to better understand client matters and identify elements that tend to be ignored by traditional economic analysis of trading conduct.

MEG’s experts’ experience spans the entire regulatory lifecycle—from prevention to investigation to litigation and remediation—across a wide range of enforcement cases involving the CFTC, DOJ, FBI, SEC, NFA, FCA, FinCEN, IRS, and SEC. We have successfully identified fraud and abuse, identified trading patterns in support of legal theories, and have evaluated and overseen corporate monitorships of major financial institutions and trading firms. We serve as expert witnesses and are experienced in developing litigation-grade code and analytics.

  • Criminal and civil government investigations, white-collar defense, and private actions
  • Financial and commodity futures, options, and swaps
  • Algorithmic, high-frequency, and manual trading
  • Market manipulation by commodity producers, trading houses, and end-users
