NEW YORK, Sept. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- RIA in a Box®, a leading provider of compliance, registration and operations support services to registered investment adviser (RIA) firms, released new employee trade monitoring software. This new tool is the latest addition to the MyRIACompliance™ online RIA compliance software platform and will be publicly available later this month.
The employee trade monitoring software features include:
- Automated electronic access to over 15,000 financial institutions
- Robust Chief Compliance Officer supervision, administration, and reporting capabilities
- Ability to view all access person transactions and holdings in a consolidated online system
- Digitization of employee trade submission, pre-clearance, review, and monitoring
- Simple interface for employees to electronically link applicable personal brokerage accounts
This robust, yet intuitive trade monitoring system will help RIA firms efficiently comply with Rule 204A-1 (Code of Ethics Rule) in a user-friendly and high quality manner. The rule requires all access persons to submit securities holdings and transaction reports. Presently, many firms still utilize inefficient, paper-driven processes to meet this critical regulatory requirement which may expose the firms' compliance programs to greater potential risk.
"For many RIA firms the tracking of employee transactions and holdings, which is a key regulator focus area, is an antiquated, paper-driven process," said GJ King, RIA in a Box President. "This new tool applies the latest in financial technology innovation to help RIA firms of all sizes automate employee trade submission, pre-clearance, review, and monitoring."
The new tool is available to MyRIACompliance™ subscribers for the introductory price of an additional $10 per user per month.
King concluded, "Historically, this type of technology has been too expensive for the vast majority of RIA firms to consider. Now, many more firms will have the ability to automate a key compliance requirement."
