KRM22 announces partnership with Ascent Technologies Inc.


- Partnership brings Compliance Automation to KRM22's Global Risk Platform    -


KRM22 plc, (AIM: KRM) the technology and software investment company that focuses on risk management for capital markets, today announces that it has partnered with Ascent Technologies Inc. to further enhance KRM22's Global Risk Platform. The partnership includes an agreement for KRM22 companies to distribute and support Ascent's Regulatory Technology Platform on the KRM22 Global Risk Platform.


Ascent's "regtech" Software-as-a-Service ("SaaS") product helps capital market clients build, manage and automate their own regulatory compliance programmes.  Ascent uses machine learning and predictive analysis to analyse the multitude of rules and regulations from sources including Exchanges, Primary Regulators and other laws and guidelines across the globe. Ascent codifies the rules from each regulatory source and links related topics from those sources to simplify compliance implementation.



Keith Todd CBE, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of KRM22 plc commented:


"This key addition to our Global Risk Platform validates our vision of delivering one platform for capital market clients to login to a multitude of applications. The KRM22 platform will allow customers to choose applications from a single platform.


We chose Ascent's regulatory compliance system as it allows capital market clients to identify all their compliance obligations in minutes rather than via weeks of consultant reviews and receive real-time updates. That represents huge potential cost savings for customers."


Brian Clark, CEO and Co-Founder of Ascent said:


"We're excited to provide KRM22 with Ascent's technology, which can process and analyse millions of points of regulatory data and translate them into actionable intelligence.  This will allow KRM22 to incorporate the rules and regulations from regulators around the world into a fully integrated enterprise risk management system. As regulators update their rules, each customer's regulatory ecosystem is automatically updated through Ascent's platform, so we can provide our customers with constantly updated information for their risk management program. Ascent's technology is fully scalable and our solutions are customizable for each client."
