Recognizing the steady expansion and growth of the investment management industry, Clausematch, a global regulatory technology company, announced today it has rejoined the UK’s Investment Association.
Returning in front of IA partners, which are some of the largest wealth, investment, and asset managers in the world, allows Clausematch to spotlight its SaaS technology to help those organizations operate safely and bring compliant products to the market.
Henry Bewley, Membership and Engine Coordinator at the Investment Association said: "Engine, the Investment Association’s FinTech hub and accelerator, was set-up in 2018 to fuel the adoption of technology within investment management, for the benefit and changing needs of clients. We work with 150+ FinTech firms and partners across the investment value chain to open up tech-driven possibilities, actively connecting the investment management industry with start-ups that can offer real solutions to real problems that impact different parts of the business such as operations, distribution, compliance, and investment."
To recall, Clausematch became the IA’s first fintech member in 2018. Since then, the regtech has grown substantially, adding more than 40 employees and expanding its services to North America and Singapore.
IA partners face global stresses like inflation, a possible economic downturn, ESG reporting and disclosing, as well as hundreds of new regulations coming online every day. In April, the UK’s financial services regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority, outlined more than a dozen new commitments to regulatory activity, significantly impacting private capital sponsors and advisors and other asset managers. Remaining compliant is no longer a ‘check-the-box’ measure, but an act that could save investment management companies money, time, and reputational damage.
Clausematch has already proved a worthwhile tool for the Investment Management industry, as the company services one of the largest asset managers in the world and ZEDRA, an international provider of corporate and global expansion, active wealth, Pensions & Incentives and Fund solutions.
“Becoming members of the IA will allow us to more personally connect and further expand our presence in the highly-regulated Investment, Wealth, and Asset Management space. Given Clausematch’s existing client base in this industry, I’m excited about this renewed commitment and can’t wait to share more with people I know will benefit from our product and services,” said Claudia Coutinho-De Somma, EMEA Account Executive.
Coutinho-De Somma also submitted an application for IA’s Innovator Programme, which, if selected, will allow Clausematch exclusive access to the IA and industry expertise, as well as valuable exposure to industry networks. The next cohort is starting in March 2023.
