#10 Easily monitor and archive employee communications

February of 2024 saw yet another batch of SEC actions for widespread and ongoing recordkeeping failure by both firms and employees to maintain and preserve electronic communications. With combined penalties for these judgments plus 2022 and 2023 actions well into the billions of dollars, it's a regulatory and business imperative that firms can monitor employee communications to identify areas of risk and archive communications in a reportable and defensible manner.  Read more about how firms who fail to properly preserve eComms face steep regulatory consequences.

MCO's eComms Review and eComms Keep solutions provides firms with comprehensive communications surveillance and consolidated archiving to help reduce the risk of regulatory action and reputational damage by minimizing potentially damaging communications and storing them in accordance with firm policy and regulatory requirements.  Plus, we can get firms up and ready quickly and affordably. 


#9 Stay compliant with accountability regimes across the globe

Global accountability regimes require that firms move beyond check the box compliance and operate with integrity, transparency, and ethical rigor. There's a laundry list of regimes that firms must comply with depending on where they conduct business, including the Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SMCR) in the UK, the Senior Executive  Accountability Regime (SEAR) in Ireland, the Banking Executive Accountability Regime (BEAR), the Financial Accountability Regime (FAR) and the Responsible Manager (RM) license in Australia, the Manager-In-Charge regime (MiC) in Hong Kong, and the map of senior individual responsibility in Malaysia.  

MCO provides an effective solution so firms can prove they meet the requirements of individual accountability regimes and ensure employees are considered Fit and Proper to effectively perform their roles.  With MCO, organizations can ensure that they have a framework that ensures the firm and associated persons according to Fit and Proper standards and the requirements of applicable accountability regimes.  


#8 Uphold a culture of compliance and ethics across your firm

Watch an on-demand MCO webinar on Building a Culture of ComplianceAll firms must uphold a culture of compliance and ethics regardless of where they are located. Enforcement actions across the globe drive home the point that if firms fail to meet regulatory expectations, financial penalties and reputational damage will follow. And it's not just about regulatory enforcement. A strong compliance culture upheld by solid policies and procedures drives more standardized, efficient and effective operations and demonstrates to investors at all levels that the firm is managed responsibly.

The MyComplianceOffice platform provides our customers with a comprehensive compliance framework that lets compliance professionals manage regulatory obligations and the regulated activities of employees, the company and third parties—and provide demonstrable proof of compliance.

#7 Keep pace with global regulatory change

If there's one thing that's constant in financial services compliance, it's the presence of change.  And just knowing that there's been a new or updated regulation isn't enough.  It’s one thing to get a daily regulatory feed. It’s another entirely to quickly understand what matters to the firm in that feed and inform only those who need to know.

MCO provides customers with a regulatory compliance monitoring solution enabling firms to assess obligations and share requirements across the organization, implement policies and controls, monitor and surveil for adherence to policy, measure risk and easily provide proof of compliance—all via one integrated and easy to use platform.

By automating personal trade surveillance, firms can achieve a holistic view of user trading and holding data while increasing efficiency and effectiveness.

Gifts and Entertainment compliance gets a lot of attention during the holiday season, but it's a round-the-year concern for Compliance Officers. Beyond year-end gifts and parties, firms should have policies and procedures in place to monitor ongoing entertainment and hospitality activities such as event tickets, golf invites and dinners out.

MyComplianceOffice helps customers to automate their global Gifts and Entertainment policy, set rules to deliver the policy, and control pre and post clearances activities and reports. MCO's Gifts and Entertainment module makes it easy to send information about policies and regulations to employees, and the platform's intuitive interface makes it simple for employees to comply. MCO's Gifts and Entertainment module can be integrated with other internal systems, including HR, so both Compliance and HR departments can have control and insight into the conduct risk profile of each employee and receive confirmation that employees have read and understood the policy.

Political donations and contributions compliance is top of mind in the United States right now in the midst of a contentious election season. MCO's Political Contributions and Donations solution helps firms stay compliant with political contribution and pay-to-play compliance rules.  The platform provides automated workflows to manage attestations and donation preclearance requests.  And to close the loop, regularly updated data at the U.S. federal, state and local level enables compliance to proactively verify donation limits are not exceeded across jurisdictions.

Plus, when compliance teams no longer have to chase employees to meet their compliance deadlines, there's more time for everyone to work on strategic endeavors and improving the company's bottom line.
