Eventus Systems, Inc. is a global provider of multi-asset class trade surveillance and market risk management. Its Validus platform can be deployed and operated across equities, options, futures, FX, fixed income, and cryptocurrency markets.[1] Validus clients include tier-1 banks, broker-dealers, futures commission merchants (FCMs), proprietary trading groups, market centers, buy-side institutions and energy/commodity trading firms.


The firm was formed as an offshoot of RGM Advisors, founded by Richard Gorelick using some of the proprietary trading technology developed by the firm. As a separate company, Eventus developed a suite of regulatory technology products that help firms monitor trading and various market risks.

On February 19, 2020, Eventus announced it had raised $10.5 million of growth capital in a Series A investment round led by Chicago-based Jump Capital and Austin-based LiveOak Venture Partners.[2]

On Jan. 7, 2021, Eventus announced that 2020 was its strongest year to date in revenue and new client onboardings. Following the Series A, the firm more than tripled its staff, established a presence in Europe and expanded in the APAC region.[3]
