Tech Transforms Compliance Role in 2017

CSS Chief Regulatory Officer Jeanette Turner was quoted in a recent Ignites article on how “Tech Transforms Compliance Role in 2017.”

A flood of new reporting requirements and a shift in regulators’ expectations has made technology a critical component of fund companies’ compliance work in 2017.

Chief Compliance Officers’ use of technology “is no longer an alternative, but a necessity,” said Todd Moyer, chief operating officer at Confluence, a Pittsburgh-based data management service provider.

For one thing, the SEC has invested heavily in tools to help its staffers dig through massive amounts of information to flag instances of firms engaging in potentially risky strategies or transactions and identify questionable conduct.

“What we’re seeing is firms following the SEC’s lead, and trying to figure out how to do more with less, and using technologically internally to see if there’s anything you should be looking at or problems you need to get ahead of,” said Turner.
