About Our Company
We help make it easier for regulated industries to do the right thing
Ascent is a regulatory knowledge platform that streamlines the most tedious and error-prone parts of compliance. By merging AI-driven technology with human expertise, Ascent’s groundbreaking solutions help regulated industries—specifically financial services—effectively manage regulatory change and reduce their risk, at a fraction of the time and cost.
Our mission is to reduce the costs and complexities of compliance and to help create a world that’s not restricted, but empowered by the rule of law.
In 2008, Ascent’s founding team witnessed firsthand how under-regulation spurred risk-taking and lax compliance practices that helped inflate the bubble. In the ensuing financial meltdown that shook the world, governments swung the pendulum too far in the other direction, drowning businesses in complex regulation.
What if there was a way to make it easier for businesses to comply with the law, unlocking both opportunity and wealth without compromising consumer protection? What if it were possible to create a world that’s not constricted, but instead empowered by the rule of law?
This is the mission of Ascent. A pioneer in the RegTech space, Ascent delivers AI-driven solutions that help customers automate regulatory compliance to reduce both risk and the cost to comply.
