The end of a year is always a time for reflection, and as we wrap 2022 it’s no different. ComplySci, as part of the COMPLY portfolio has had a powerhouse of a year, with new products, new partnerships and new teams coming together all in the name of compliance.
As we look forward to 2023 and beyond, we would be remiss if we didn’t highlight some of the biggest takeaways from this year.
While 2021 may have been a year of acquisition a growth, 2022 was a year where our teams came together to form COMPLY. The new parent brand officially united ComplySci, RIA in a Box, NRS and illumis under one entity, bringing together market leaders to create one of the most holistic regulatory compliance solutions and resources available for investment advisers, broker-dealers, hedge funds, private equity firms and more.
“By officially joining our teams under a single banner and unifying our leadership team, we have affirmed our focus on being the champion for compliance professionals across the financial services industry. Even as each business continues to operate under its well-respected brand, our customers and our organization will see tremendous benefits as we unlock the full power of the combined knowledge and expertise within each of our companies.” – COMPLY Chief Executive Officer Amy Kadomatsu
The ComplyConnect Conference & Expo, held Nov. 8 – 10, brought together leading experts in the industry to provide their perspective on the challenges and complexities of compliance in 2022. With speakers touching on the Marketing Rule, cybersecurity and a review of the news and alerts coming out of D.C., attendees gained critical insight into how they should approach compliance in 2023 and beyond.
