In her speech on Data and Technology in the Capital Market, Madhabi Puri-Buch said, “SEBI is at the forefront of regulators globally in using data to enhance investor safety and confidence.” She noted that regulated organisations produce a lot of data and said, “If the regulator collects the right data from the regulated entities, it is possible, even with simple algorithms and the adoption of appropriate technology, to identify and track market malpractices.”

Her speech was followed by an interactive session where she answered questions from the audience regarding ‘flinfluencers’ or financial influencers, co-location, wrongdoings like insider trading, fraudulent transactions and more.
