Compliance Assurance Corporation (CAC), a leading provider of regulatory compliance solutions for the insurance industry, has announced that multi-national life insurance provider Foresters™ has selected CAC’s Comply On Demand Enterprise (CODE) platform to minimize risk exposure and maintain compliance with insurance regulation in the United States.

Founded in 1874, Foresters shares its financial strength with over one million members in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom.

Foresters will benefit from CODE’s ability to deliver timely regulatory notifications and analysis, specifically tailored to Foresters line of business. CODE translates regulatory changes into actionable tasks, which can then be assigned, managed, and tracked through completion.

According to Laura Bullard, Director, Regulatory and Business Compliance at Foresters, “The comprehensive nature of the CODE platform is what drew us to CAC’s solution. A more streamlined regulatory change management process that mitigates enterprise-wide regulatory risk will allow us to continue our strong growth trajectory while supported by a sound compliance methodology.”

CODE also provides users the tasks and tools necessary to complete the work associated with regulatory changes.
