Special offer for Advent Software Users: Become a client before October 31 and receive a 50% reduction in onboarding fees.


Like many in compliance, chances are that you’re not prepared for new SEC and FINRA data driven exams, which promise a vastly more automated approach to compliance. And with a stated goal of exams every two years for firms like yours, it’s not “if” but “when” you’ll face a more thorough exam than ever before. 

Despite these changes, many in compliance are relying on outdated tools and processes such as spreadsheets or mock exams for investment operations, providing a false sense of security. It’s more important than ever to have a comprehensive and likely more automated approach to compliance.
