GRC Solutions for Digital Asset Managers

The growth of the digital asset space in recent years has naturally led to the advent of “cryptocurrency hedge funds” and other investment management firms that make digital asset investments on behalf of their clients. As a result, digital assets including cryptocurrencies, initial coin offerings, and other blockchain focused assets continue to be a focus area for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and other regulators. 

Our solutions are specifically designed to help firms align their advisory processes with regulatory requirements and the expectations of the SEC and the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).

Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have brought new thinking to payments and financial inclusion, but they’ve also raised new issues of investor protection. If confirmed at the SEC, I will work to promote innovation.

Gary Gensler, SEC Chairman Nominee
