The SOC 1 Type 2 examination was conducted in accordance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements No. 16 (SSAE 16) and evaluated the effectiveness of certain control processes in Conifer's fund administration, onboarding, financial reporting and middle- and back-office service infrastructure.Conifer's examination was performed by the public accounting firm Grant Thornton LLP, and covered the operating period of January 1, 2015 to October 31, 2015.

"2015 was another exciting year for Conifer. With increased investments in our IT and reporting systems fueling new client growth, we've expanded our teams in Halifax and Singapore to better serve our clients globally. Furthermore, the divestiture of our brokerage business in Q3 of 2015 enables us to exclusively focus on our core fund administration business."
