Compliance technology solution to complement Mazars’ Financial Service clients’ needs

29 March 2017

International accounting and advisory firm Mazars has announced its collaboration with Albany Group, a technology supplier which provides software to help firms meet regulatory demands and improve operational efficiency.

With new regulations and an increasing emphasis on good conduct, financial services firms need to effectively manage their supply chain and demonstrate compliance. As firms are responsible for maintaining oversight and control over the activities of any third party supplier, risk management becomes more prevalent with firms facing possible risks should checks not be done properly. With Albany Group’s software this process can be effectively monitored and maintained throughout a client’s journey helping to minimise potential risks and provide value for the client.

Romy Comiter, Partner at Mazars said: “We see great potential in this collaboration and the benefits for our clients in the financial services sector. The use of Albany’s unique solutions has huge potential benefits for our clients.”

Stewart Griffiths, Albany Group CEO, added: “Mazars recognises the gaps in the market for RegTech solutions to address regulatory challenges and Albany’s innovative solution to address them. We could not be prouder of this association.”
