Etheios Joins Forces with ComplySoft to Provide Compliance Consultancy and Software

2 July 2007

Etheios, the leading independent financial services consultancy, has joined forces with ComplySoft, a global compliance and risk management solutions provider, to offer compliance consultancy and software to financial services businesses across Europe.

ComplySoft, which already has a number of major financial services clients outside Europe, offers software and pre-configured legislation data that simplifies complex regulatory data into an easily understandable and searchable format and provides continuous updates of legislative changes. Working in partnership with ComplySoft, Etheios will provide the European financial services regulatory expertise to create a full service risk evaluation and compliance solution.

Sharon Constancon, Managing Director of ComplySoft, comments: “The current regulatory environment within the financial services industry makes Board directors accountable for compliance. However, most senior executives do not have the time to focus on the practical application and control of this responsibility. Our software, combined with Etheios’s proven expertise within the European regulatory environment, can help create a comprehensive picture of an organisation’s compliance risk profile and identify financial and reputational risk areas which once identified can be managed. The software aids the embedding of a natural compliance culture so that senior executives can be confident in the full adherence of the organisation with legislative requirements at a reduced cost and create increased competitiveness for the business.”

Stewart Copland, Consulting Director of Etheios, added: “Regulatory compliance is a key issue within financial services and the ComplySoft software, combined with Etheios’s understanding of how the legislation works in practice, provides a range of solutions to ensure an organisation fully meets its regulatory obligations. As well as offering a complete embedded compliance management system, we can also create stand-alone tools for individual projects with specific legislation requirements, such as MiFID, or a one off heat map tool to help understand the risk management ‘hotspots’ within an organisation.”

As an approved Microsoft partner, all ComplySoft software is compatible with widely used applications such as Excel and Word.
