As the most complete and comprehensive RIA compliance platform on the market, SmartRIA consistently aims to expand and adapt to meet user needs before they are even an issue. That’s exactly what our company focused on in 2019 — and with our record revenue growth, this strategy will continue to allow us to be your most powerful compliance partner.
Over 2019, we more than doubled in size, acquired two other compliance platforms, built and launched major additions to our own platform, and moved forward on multiple strategic partnerships with some of the biggest companies in the wealth management industry.
“Through these acquisitions, strategic partnerships and platform upgrades, there’s a huge opportunity for our customers to experience a first-of-its-kind all in one compliance platform,” says Mac Bartine, CEO of SmartRIA. “Our clients are telling us this is a game-changer for them, and we’re excited to see our mission to simplify compliance continuing to improve the lives of the professionals who use our platform.”
When creating SmartRIA, we kept the user in mind to ensure that the platform would be the most comprehensive and intuitive on the market. Prior to 2019, there were some holes in our platform, such as oversight capabilities that weren’t completely comprehensive and needed improvement, that we’ve continued to address and upgrade.
Improvements and expansions to our platform in 2019 included:
- Continuous improvement to existing features to make them easier to use and cover more of our clients’ compliance obligations
- Personal trade monitoring for employee oversight
- The acquisition of Greytwist Data Governance, which allows us to offer vendor due diligence and employee data access monitoring, and more.
“It’s never been easier to be more compliant because SmartRIA is constantly working to make it easier. We’ve made a lot of headway in expanding our platform and achieving our stated mission of becoming the best RIA compliance platform on the market. And we don’t intend to stop there,” says Bartine.
In the coming months and years, we’re going to be doubling down on technology and partnerships, offering best-in-class software and services, providing excellent customer service, and consistently focusing on improving the platform.
“We don’t use our growth to have expensive offices or spend our money in other non-productive ways,” said Bartine. “We use our growth to grow our team, increase our services, and to embody the values of our home town, Knoxville, Tennessee, as well as the values of our industry as a whole: be conservative with your capital. Grow smart. Be about more than just yourself.”
So, what can you expect from SmartRIA in 2020? More of the same: great customer service and continuous improvement to our software. Also more involvement in our industry: we’ll be supporting what we care about as a company, wherever we see opportunities to do so. We will continue reinvesting back into our company to thoroughly achieve our mission of being the very best, most comprehensive RIA compliance platform.
