StarCompliance (“Star”), a leading provider of employee compliance technology solutions, announced today it is partnering with 7IM to provide a full suite of employee conflicts of interest monitoring software that will easily and effectively mitigate the risk associated with the kinds of employee activity that could adversely affect their regulatory compliance.
“7IM was using SharePoint to monitor processes to ensure its employee base, and by extension the firm, stayed compliant,” said Craig Jones, Chief Revenue Officer at Star. “But the firm was growing fast and those kinds of monitoring practices aren’t scalable. They needed dashboards, better reporting capabilities overall, and a way to make certifications less of a heavy lift. Star also ticked the box on better broker coverage and the guarantee of a speedy implementation. We couldn’t be more thrilled to be partnering with this fast-growing City firm.”
7IM will initially be bringing 450+ users onto the STAR Platform. Founded in 2002, the London-based firm provides discretionary investment management services, a platform, and a range of funds and model portfolios to professional advisers, wealth managers, individuals, charities, and pension funds.
Jana Sivananthan, Chief Risk Officer at 7IM added: “At 7IM, we have always prided ourselves on being forward-thinking and innovative, leveraging leading technology to deliver the best possible outcomes. As such, when we went to look for a new employee compliance solution, we wanted to partner with a company that had a similar philosophy and offered something that was demonstrably better than anything else out there. StarCompliance stood head and shoulders above the competition in this regard. Their STAR Platform is scalable, user-intuitive, and the Personal Account Dealing product offered pre-clearance; a must-have for us.”
