Ascent and Onspring Partner to Streamline Regulatory Compliance for Financial Services

The strategic integration empowers users with greater visibility into and control of their unique regulatory obligations.

July 19, 2022

Ascent, the premier provider of Regulatory Knowledge Automation, announced today that they have partnered with Onspring, a leading Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) software, to streamline the way financial firms comply with evolving regulations.

This strategic partnership connects the power of Ascent’s RegTech platform with Onspring’s Regulatory Change Management solution, leading to massive time savings and reduced risk through the use of machine learning and natural language processing.

“Today, RegTech stands at an exciting crossroads. The need for compliance solutions in financial services has been demonstrated all too clearly, and using AI to power the solution is no longer just for early adopters,” said Matt Pugh, EVP, Product at Onspring. “By connecting Ascent’s technology to our platform, more advisors will be able to effectively manage regulatory changes and reduce their risk, in far less time and at a fraction of the cost.”

Together, Onspring and Ascent deliver end-to-end, scalable, and repeatable regulatory compliance processes, enabling firms to:

  • Turn volumes of data into targeted knowledge, minimizing the need for manual regulatory research by surfacing only relevant obligations.
  • Unlock a clearer view of regulatory risk by mapping granular obligations to policies, procedures, and controls in a centralized view.
  • Manage regulatory change, with built-in algorithms that easily recognize change on a one-to-one basis, surfaced directly within a register of mapped obligations.

“At Ascent, we’ve found a way to pair machine-driven efficiency with human expertise from our in-house team of data scientists and legal experts. Our industry-trusted, world-class algorithms are able to ingest, parse, and analyze millions of lines of regulatory text to pinpoint the obligations that matter most,” said Dominick Campagna, Ascent’s Vice President of Sales. “We could not be more excited to give firms the assurance they need to quickly and effectively assess the impact of regulation within the context of their businesses, with the help of Onspring.”
