Complinet enables firms to better understand and minimize their exposure to risk by providing both the information and technologies they need to connect live external events, such as regulatory updates or sanction changes, with their internal policy management and screening activities.
Our customers include 80 per cent of the leading financial services firms across the globe.
Complinet is unique in the financial services industry. Our solutions combine deep regulatory insight with innovative technology that provide timely information, analysis and risk management services to more than 100,000 compliance and legal professionals across 81 countries.
Complinet is the leading provider of solutions that dynamically deliver relevant compliance intelligence to industry professionals within the highly regulated global financial services community.
The highly dynamic nature of today’s regulated markets means there is often a divide between regulatory change and a firm’s ability to identify, understand and implement these changes across the enterprise. Traditionally, this has led to an ad-hoc approach to compliance, with firms and banks addressing every new regulatory mandate as a tactical project. This can be highly inefficient and costly to the organization. In fact, Gartner has estimated that firms who take this disconnected approach to compliance will spend up to ten times more than companies who tackle this proactively and with process-driven methods.
The key is connectivity.
Complinet delivers a connected, proactive, sustainable approach to the compliance process
Every regulatory or sanctions change potentially exposes a business and the products it sells to risk. Firms and banks that are unable to update and enforce internal policies and controls in step with the required timescales are particularly exposed to the risk of fines, investigations, adverse media coverage and other damaging outcomes.
Only Complinet provides the combination of compliance expertise, deep market insight and technologies that you need to significantly reduce your exposure to risk. Complinet’s solutions support your firm’s immediate regulatory concerns and allow you to introduce a culture of timely, proactive, and sustainable compliance that will protect your organization for years to come.
Complinet was founded in 1997 and now employs more than 200 people in its offices in New York, London and Dubai.
Connection is about relating what is happening outside your organization, and understanding and assimilating relevant changes quickly and efficiently. By knowing and reacting to influences such as regulatory change first and fast, risk is reduced and competitive advantage gained.
