Foreside Financial Group, a global provider of regulatory and compliance service and technology offerings for firms in the global asset and wealth management industry, is introducing a robust collection of technology-based compliance solutions, all accessible via an expanded client portal. Each new solution is designed to streamline compliance and create efficiencies by employing the latest technology available to meet the unique needs of its individual clients.

Foreside is launching several solutions that will improve the compliance function in vital areas such as personal account monitoring, best execution review, delivery of education and training to staff, advertising and marketing review, and cybersecurity. Select solutions are capable of integrating with an advisor’s current portfolio management platform.

“We pride ourselves in learning our clients’ businesses inside and out to create a truly personalised experience and customised compliance solution,” says David Whitaker, President at Foreside. “We are excited to be able to enhance our consulting relationships by providing our clients with access to state of the art technology designed to integrate back office systems, improve the compliance function, and ultimately streamline compliance, making it more cost effective.  These new solutions will help Foreside better address our clients’ needs in a variety of areas, while maintaining the high-touch approach that is the hallmark of Foreside’s consulting practice.”
