Fund administrator SEI has launched a new global regulatory risk and compliance platform for investment management firms to tackle escalating costs and risk associated with increasing regulation.
Developed by SEI's Investment Manager Services division the platform is a standalone solution based on open architecture and modular service components, covering a cross-jurisdiction inventory of global regulation, compliance program assessment and monitoring, automated regulatory filings, portfolio monitoring and risk analysis, and automated regulatory filings.
"For years, investment managers have dealt with regulatory compliance in a reactive and siloed way, focusing on one product type, regulator, or regulatory regime at a time," says Jim Warren, head of solutions strategy and development at SEI Investment Manager Services. "That approach is inefficient and error-prone, poses risks of non-compliance, and hampers a firm's ability to grow into new products and markets. SEI's platform solves those problems by giving investment organizations an integrated, streamlined way to manage and execute compliance functions firm-wide."
