Securities are tradable financial assets. In recent years, the speed in which securities are traded in markets such as the New York Stock Exchange is unprecedented. Supercomputers are receiving trades instantaneously and inform the wider public of real time information in a heartbeat. Therefore, it has never been easier for companies and individuals to invest in other publicly-traded companies within seconds and acquire financial assets, as every trade occurs online. In Cyprus, CySec regulates financial institutions that exchange and trade financial securities.
Favorable laws and regulations have rendered Cyprus a tax haven and a very attractive place to establish an office of your business that is involved in financial securities. As a result, companies that facilitate the trade of securities such as eToro have a registered office in Cyprus and also Cyprus is the home to the most FOREX companies in the world.
Additionally, according to EY, financial institutions have been using AI technologies and “automated systems to monitor their traders by linking trading information with other behavioral information such as email traffic, calendar items, office building check-in and checkout times, and even telephone calls”. In this way, AI can help companies and financial institutions monitor and detect fraudulent activities associated with their securities.
