NEW YORK, NY – Compliance Solutions Strategies (“CSS”), the leading global RegTech platform backed by CIP Capital that enables compliance professionals across the global financial services industry to navigate complex regulatory requirements, has acquired TradeChannel, a leading provider of post-trade regulatory reporting, data and systems integration software to the financial services industry. TradeChannel, based in Stockholm, Sweden, provides automation of transaction reporting for data intensive reporting requirements under EMIR, MiFID II and the upcoming challenge of SFTR to a blue-chip client base comprising asset managers, pension funds, banks and insurance companies in the Nordic markets.

The mission-critical regulatory reporting and data integration solutions of TradeChannel will greatly add to CSS’s leading technology-enabled regulatory compliance offering.
