The client, their challenge
The client’s vision and investment approach was clear – to target software and services businesses that are growing faster than the broader economy.
Having spent the last 25 years leading over 150 global investments, supporting long-term growth and expansion, the client desired to remain at the top in relation to regulation and all-stakeholder experience. Their lean but expert team needed to be able to maintain a smooth relationship with regulators, co-operate with global internal and external teams, as well as deliver on promises. With the growing popularity of our client’s role in the alternatives markets, their ability to handle raised investor volumes properly, personally, and in-sync with broadening compliance burdens was paramount.
Switching from the cumbersome and fragmented, manual, traditional paper-based investor onboarding approach was the goal. It was also a strategic priority to empower key staff with leading digital tools, enabling them to successfully complete AML/KYC steps for the large and growing investor base.
The brief was clear: deliver a good-looking, multi-functional, fast-evolving and high-performing system that would overcome both today’s and tomorrow’s challenges.
IQ-EQ’s MaxComply™ was quickly shortlisted by the client, as it demonstrated deep market domain expertise and intelligence that led to a highly functional global software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform, purpose-built for our client’s industry segment.
Through rigorous due diligence on workflows, tier 1 identity checker integrations, system architecture, security, support and forward-looking roadmap enhancements, MaxComply™ was considered market-leading and was successful in partnering with our client in a perfectly balanced solution that met the needs of everyone.
