ACA Technology's case studies highlight ACA's technology solutions and how they can help your firm streamline operations, scale for growth, and meet business objectives effectively and efficiently.

Today's case study focuses on ComplianceAlpha®, ACA's secure, centralized platform for compliance program management and risk monitoring.

Client Type: A Growing Investment Adviser/Wealth Manager with $1.5B AUM

The Challenge

An investment advisory and financial planning firm managing over $1.5 billion in client assets experiencing growth in its advisory business required updates to its compliance and marketing review program infrastructure, which was limited by inefficiencies in its manual review processes.

The ACA Technology Solution

The adviser subscribed to ComplianceAlpha’s Compliance Management Platform (CMP) and Marketing Review Solution (MRS) modules, migrating its manual processes to a centralized, cloud-based platform that captured all of the firm's compliance activities and marketing review processes while scaling to accommodate increased compliance responsibilities and marketing volume.

Client Benefits

By adopting ComplianceAlpha to optimize its compliance and marketing review workflows, the firm was able to:

  • Accommodate increasing compliance responsibilities and marketing materials volume;
  • Update its compliance and marketing review programs via ACA’s Master Reference Library;
  • Automate and organize compliance activity tracking via the CMP module's compliance calendar; and
  • Focus its compliance team on higher-value items rather than manual tasks.
