Regulatory Compliance

Regulations regarding communications record-keeping are increasing for financial services firms. Many of these regulations now apply not just to fixed-line communications like email and office phone calls, but to mobile communications too.

Addressing such regulations is complicated by the international nature of many firms’ cell phone fleets (not all on one network or in one country), and by the increasing use of BYOD policies within finance firms.

How will your firm comply with increasing regulatory requirements to record calls from the cell phones of workers across multiple countries, some of whom may be using employee-owned smartphones?


MiFID II applies to all financial services firms that trade in, or with, the European Union, or that provide financial advice in, or with, the European Union, including firms and traders based outside of the EU.

MiFID II Article 16(7) requires an investment firm to:

“…take all reasonable steps to record relevant telephone conversations and electronic communications, made with, sent from or received by equipment provided by the investment firm to an employee or contractor or the use of which by an employee or contractor has been accepted or permitted by the investment firm.”

Norwood’s Financial Services solution fully meets the MiFID II requirements by providing the World Phone® calling app and the Corona Cloud™ telephony, recording and archival system.

World Phone® is a smartphone app which puts a second phone on a smartphone, independent of the SIM card and underlying cell carrier. World Phone® comes with its own number, calling and receiving just like any normal smartphone call. All World Phone® calls are carried via Norwood’s cloud telephony system, Corona™, which handles call completion as well as recording all voice calls in the cloud and providing metadata in the form of call detail records.

World Phone® is a mature and proven technology, with over five million users around the world.
