Our solutions

Our award-winning compliance advisory services provide firms with tailored support and practical solutions for staying on top of your regulatory obligations.

The registration or application process can seem lengthy, overwhelming, and daunting. We can simplify the process with our SEC, FINRA, CFTC and NFA, and state registration as well as FCA authorization support services. Or if you are launching a new investment management firm, or extending an existing venture, we also offer regulatory hosting through ACA Mirabella

As new rules and regulations are adopted and the regulatory landscape evolves your compliance manual must keep pace or risk leaving your firm exposed.

Our team can assist you with developing and maintaining your compliance manual, policies, and procedures for a range of topical challenges.

Our review services look under the hood of your compliance program to ensure the policies and procedures you’ve set are up to date and appropriate for your firm. We can provide Mock SEC, FINRA, and NFA Exams, as well as FCA Mock Audits, in-depth analysis of your firm’s FCA RegData returns, and your Internal Capital Adequacy Assessment Process (ICAAP). 

Inspection Support Services

The SEC targets registered investment advisers both domestically and across the globe for inspections as part of its risk-focused exam strategy. When you are selected to be examined our team can assist your firm before, during, and after the exam by reviewing and organizing requested documents, assisting with deficiency letter response writing, and more.

Gain more time in your day by outsourcing day-to-day compliance tasks that slow you down. Our team can support you with electronic communication reviews, online presence/social media reviews, holistic surveillance, marketing and advertising and financial promotion reviews, AML-KYC/CIP support, expert network chaperoning, regulatory filings, and more. 

As the regulatory framework becomes ever more complex, the requirement for training and enhanced staff knowledge and competencies becomes more important. Keep up to date on key regulatory and industry issues with in-person employee compliance training led by our consulting team.

We offer dedicated outsourced Chief Compliance Officers (OCCOs) for registered investment advisors. Our team of professionals include former in-house CCOs and attorneys. We will customize our services to meet your specific needs. 

FINOP Accounting Services

We provide experienced Financial and Operations Principals (FINOPs) and professional accounting services to keep you in compliance. Our licensed Series 27 and Series 28 professionals have years of financial experience working with FINRA and the SEC and can help support your firm.

Our Fund Officer model provides a hands-on, tailored approach by placing experienced and independent Fund Officers close to the Fund’s Board of Trustees. They are exposed to multiple administrators, counsel, and advisors, and have valuable industry perspective allowing for a better understanding of best practices.
