“A huge compliance problem exists for broker-dealers, investment advisors and wealth management companies who move towards a paperless office” said Alan Preston, CEO of GMx Solutions in Tampa, Florida. “They have to make sure this data is stored, accessed and managed in a compliant manner, but now with this partnership between ourselves and AdvisorVault, we are able to instantly solve this issue for them,” added Preston.
The Blue Paper Cloud offering from GMx Solutions closes the gap in any compliance failing that may exist when financial firms go paperless. It allows them the peace of mind that data is kept in the proper format and for the required amount of time, as dictated by the FINRA electronic records supervision rules 17a-3 and 17a-4. The additional SEC Designated Third Party demands (D3P) are met, as well. This helps to ensure audits are successfully passed with ease so that the highest level of customer confidence is maintained at all times.
In addition, firms who are members of FINRA, regulated under the SEC, can access the documents anywhere, anytime because data is hosted in the cloud; this gives them true scan-and-shred ability, as data can be verified instantly for auditors before destruction. This saves a great amount of time for the management of physical documents by centralizing the electronic records process with access from the internet. This is particularly important for firms that are geographically distributed or want to simplify complex data flows spread throughout the entire organization.
