Form CRS Automator

The countdown to Form CRS compliance is on. The creators of the Ascendant Form ADV Toolkit now bring you the CSS Form CRS Automator to simplify the compliance challenge. Our product enables CCOs of registered broker-dealers and investment advisers to quickly produce a Form CRS using a step-by-step decision tree, with expert content curated by our team of compliance professionals. The CSS Form CRS Automator does this by:

  • Acquiring data from previously filed SEC records for the firm to produce content that is 100% aligned with ADV filing
  • Analyzing services disclosed and guiding CCOs through a structured decision tree with prompts to complete all mandatory texts
  • Automatic generation of compliance-ready content curated by our team of compliance pros

Using our Form CRS Automator, a compliance-ready Form CRS can be produced in less than 30 minutes – saving valuable time and reducing risk of non-compliant content that does not align with other SEC and FINRA filings. For full brochure, click here.
