Riskalyze Launches Game Changing "Compliance Cloud" Big Data Platform
AUBURN, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Riskalyze, which was named one of the world's 10 most innovative
companies in finance by Fast Company Magazine, today announced the
launch of a revolutionary new big data platform called Compliance Cloud.
The new technology will help large wealth management institutions sift
through massive data and spot issues before they become problems.
"Our broker-dealer and RIA partners have a missile aimed at the heart of
their operations: mounting audits, SEC (News - Alert) demands for risk-based compliance
assessment and FINRA's effort to find enforcement targets with CARDS,"
said Riskalyze CEO Aaron Klein. "Fortunately, with Compliance Cloud, the
era of the 'random account spot-check' is officially over."
Compliance Cloud helps compliance and supervision teams at
broker-dealers and large registered investment advisory (RIA) firms find
accounts with inappropriate investments for their objectives; with
concentrated positions; with high-risk positions; with excessive cash;
with periods of inactivity and more. Searches can be sliced by client,
advisor, balance and even risk level. Case management and resolution
workflow for compliance and supervision teams are built into the
Compliance Cloud recalculates the risk across millions of client
holdings every night, indexes the results and delivers a Google (News - Alert)-like
ability to search the accounts for potential problems. Clients can
easily connect the existing account data feeds from their custodians,
clearing firms or aggregation providers.
"Broker-dealers need to know what CARDS is going to tell FINRA next
year, but they also need to change the outcome before CARDS goes live,"
said Michael McDaniel, Chief Investment Officer at Riskalyze.
"Compliance Cloud will prepare these firms to walk into next year's
FINRA and SEC audits with thousands of documented cases of proactive
While many broker-dealers and RIAs have successfully adapted to
ever-tightening regulations, 2015's deployment of FINRA's Comprehensive
Automated Risk Data System ("CARDS") initiative will open a new era of
scrutiny that broker-dealers must be prepared for. In addition, the SEC
is telling firms of all stripes that they need a risk-based assessment
of their accounts to uphold their obligations.
Riskalyze also announced Orion Advisor Services as the premier launch
partner for Compliance Cloud. Large RIAs who use Orion can seamlessly
implement the product with almost zero data feed setup work required.
Orion will make Compliance Cloud available directly to its large RIA
clients through its extensive nationwide sales team.
"At Orion, we know a thing or two about revolutionary technology that
helps advisors enjoy their business again, and Compliance Cloud is a
game-changing tool for the large RIA clients that we serve," said Orion
CEO Eric Clarke. "We're pleased to make Compliance Cloud available as a
seamless addition to the portfolio accounting systems that our advisors
