Ascent for Asset Management
Good governance is good for business
Returns are crucial, but not the only metric that matters. More than ever, asset managers are expected to meet the highest standards in fiduciary responsibility — which can reap great rewards.
Reduce Risk and Costs
Getting dinged by regulators incurs a cost beyond the initial fine – time and effort gets wasted on damage control, your firm loses management focus, and your clients have a worse experience. Ascent keeps you out of the regulatory hot seat, at lower cost.
Manual regulatory admin work is expensive and prone to error. Ascent’s AI delivers greater accuracy, at a fraction of the cost
Built with the expertise of in-house compliance experts, Ascent goes beyond great tech. We work to understand your business and guide you through proper implementation.
