What is “compliance management"? “Compliance management” is a term that we use to describe the system used by a firm to ensure that it operates a robust and effective compliance program. “Compliance management” has several key components, including, among other things, organization, efficient allocation of resources, delegation of responsibilities, effective management and leadership, appropriate training, policies and procedures tailored to the firm’s business, and documented compliance reviews.
We offer a wide range of compliance management solutions to help your firm establish, implement, and maintain an effective system for achieving compliance with the securities laws, rules, and regulations governing its business.

WHY CHOOSE MASTERCOMPLIANCE?
The Ultimate Solution for Compliance Management
The complex and ever-growing set of regulations and laws governing the securities industry creates many challenges for the financial institutions that must comply with them. Compliance is not just what you know, but more importantly, what you don't know. The enforcement stakes are high and an audit score of 99% could result in a failure.
For those of you who are experts, compliance is something that you have to teach and delegate to others. Compliance takes a great deal of organization and discipline. Compliance doesn't just happen in a day; rather, it is ongoing process that must occur throughout the year.
Too often, we come across prospects that desperately need to fix a failing compliance program. In many cases, the gaps in these compliance programs are not detected until it is too late. Perhaps, the firm put too much trust in one employee. Consider the consequences of losing a key person, such as your firm’s Chief Compliance Officer. How would your firm replace this position with only two weeks’ notice? There is just too much ground to cover.
MasterCompliance is your firm’s solution and the all-in-one compliance management company.
We pride ourselves not only on our innovative products, but also on our people. Our clients remind us daily of how much they value our team and services. Our people have skills and experience in a broad range of fields, including legal, regulatory, operations, accounting, supervisory, trading, data analysis and technology.
