To meet the needs of that "increasingly stringent regulatory environment," InvestEdge (www.investedge.com) has updated its Compliance Solution application for banks and financial advisors and made it available as a stand-alone product.
According to InvestEdge Vice President Jeff Cowley, the turnkey program equips firms with the tools to systematically monitor and review portfolios, replaces error-prone manual processes, and enables advisors "to adhere to more exacting standards for managing and monitoring discretionary assets."
"Firms of all types are caught in a balancing act between complying with regulations and remaining competitive with their peers," says Cowley. "Across the board, their goal is to reduce the time, effort and expense of conducting account investment and administrative reviews. Because our compliance solution can be implemented very quickly, firms can rapidly decrease manual efforts, increase accuracy...and simplify external and internal review processes."
Founded in June, 2000, InvestEdge provides an integrated wealth management platform that automates front office functions such as portfolio management, performance measurement and client reporting in addition to the compliance monitoring solution which will now become available separately.
