New compliance and risk management platform from the industry’s largest team of former regulators, financial technologists, and cybersecurity professionals helps global financial services firms to strengthen and streamline their risk and compliance program across the enterprise from a single location.
ACA Compliance Group (ACA), a leading provider of governance, risk, and compliance advisory services and technology solutions, today launched ComplianceAlpha® 2.0. This next-generation compliance and risk management platform helps financial services firms stay one step ahead of regulators’ increasingly advanced technological capabilities to detect insider trading, market abuse, and other potential misconduct.
The enhanced platform was designed and developed by the industry’s largest team of former regulators, financial technologists, and cybersecurity professionals. ComplianceAlpha 2.0 responds to the unique challenges faced by financial services firms around the world.
Jordan Schwartz, Partner at ACA Compliance Group, said, “To accurately and efficiently meet regulatory demands and identify risk, financial services firms no longer have to rely on manual processes and unconnected data sources. Firms need the support of an enterprise-wide, scalable technology solution that brings together their structured and unstructured data sets while allowing for easy feature updates as needs change.”
