Refinitiv Messenger provides access to real-time market data and news, financial trading and analytics, as well as a comprehensive real-time messaging tool available as a desktop client, smartphone app or via a Web interface.

The Refinitiv Messenger app is available on iPhone, iPad and Android mobile devices and is automatically synchronised across all clients, and so provides an open, secure collaboration tool for the global financial community via a single interface that allows instant messaging networks to operate seamlessly with each other.

It also provides APIs for integration into other applications and services so that Refinitiv Messenger users can communicate with consumer IM networks, such as AOL, Instant Messenger, Yahoo and MSN, as well as offering enterprise connectivity to users on Microsoft Office, Cisco Jabber, and more. As a result, Refinitiv Messenger is an essential productivity and communications tool.

Meeting compliance obligations with Refinitiv Messenger

But, such comprehensive connectivity, of course, comes with the obligation to log, record, store and access chat conversations to meet compliance obligations such as MiFID II, Dodd-Frank, GDPR, PDPA and others, across multiple channels.

Employees and customers now use a variety of channels for communication, which means that compliance needs to be guaranteed across the board, and must cover all devices and applications regardless of location.

So, how can organisations integrate recording capabilities across multiple chat applications and services quickly and easily and record and store them in a consistent fashion to meet their compliance obligations?

Because multiple channels are often used alongside Refinitiv Messenger, it’s essential that all communications channels are integrated into a comprehensive recording environment. It’s not enough to record individual channels in isolation: organisations need to consider how to integrate all digital channels across the organisation. This requires a holistic approach that connects all data silos to ensure absolute coverage with no compliance gaps.
