One of our company's longstanding commitments is investing time and resources to make the RIA in a Box MyRIACompliance® platform the industry leading compliance technology offering for registered investment adviser ("RIA") firms. We put the client first by delivering innovative software and expert advice. Since 2005 we take pride in partnering with our clients to establish and support the highest quality registered investment adviser firms in the country. At RIA in a Box, we release new MyRIACompliance® software features and enhancements on a daily basis to meet the growing compliance challenges that investment advisers continue to confront.
Here are the key new MyRIACompliance® RIA compliance software features, integrations, and updates released during October 2019:
1. Enhanced Compliance Calendar Automation
After providing your firm's Form ADV Part 1, policies and procedures, and firm questionnaire, the RIA compliance software system automatically generates recommendations for a schedule of compliance calendar activities based on the firm-specific data provided. The system does an initial review of the firm's questionnaire and policies and procedures, and screens Form ADV Part 1 information to make adjustments in real-time based on any changes the firm makes. The technology sets the frequency of calendar items such as best execution review, client books and records review, political contribution review, and more to help ensure your firm's compliance reviews are taking place as stated in your firm's policies and procedures.
2. Additional Vendors added to the Vendor Due Diligence Platform
The Vendor Due Diligence Platform allows RIA firms and vendors to automate documentation sharing and tracking by sharing due diligence documentation (e.g., business continuity plan, email compliance, cyber security policies) all within in a single digital platform. RIA firms can connect with vendors directly via the platform to conduct initial or ongoing vendor due diligence. In October, six additional vendors were added to the platform: Asset-Map, Bridge Financial Technology, FCI, Message Watcher, RightSize Solutions, and Snappy Kraken. Existing vendors include Advyzon, Envestnet MoneyGuide, Morningstar, Redtail, Riskalyze, Orion, and Wealthbox.
3. Cybersecurity Enhancement: Two-Factor Authentication
To add an additional layer of security to the MyRIACompliance® platform, all individual and supervisory level users can now enable two-factor authentication. By turning on two-factor authentication, users have the option to send an authentication code to their email address or to use the Google Authenticator application to access MyRIACompliance®. This new feature helps prevent unauthorized access to MyRIACompliance®.
