RegEd Reaches 15 Million Alerts Processed on Credentialing Data Management Solution

RegEd Reaches 1.5 Million Alerts Processed on Credentialing Data Management Solution

RegEd, the leading provider of Licensing and Registration technology solutions to the financial services industry, today announced that Alerts 2.0, a module of its Xchange Enterprise Licensing and Registration solution, has processed more than 1.5 million alerts since its launch earlier this year. Alerts 2.0, through integration with the NIPR Producer Database (“PDB”), significantly expands the range of data for which firms can receive automated change notifications and systematized, timely reconciliation with the firm’s back-end database.

“Monitoring, updating and maintaining accurate credentialing data continues to be a challenge for insurers and distributors, and is especially burdensome for firms with a large number of producers” said Kristy Locklear, Senior Vice President, Product Management at RegEd. “Processing 1.5 million alerts to date demonstrates the solution’s ability to drive efficiency at an enterprise scale. This approach to managing producer data is rapidly becoming the gold standard.”

Using Alerts 2.0 insurers and distributors can automatically identify changes, and then reconcile and synchronize those changes with the firm’s back-end database.

Dani Fields-Damato, Vice President, Marsh USA Inc., an early user of the solution, commented, “Within the first three months of using Alerts 2.0, our Agency has received more than 300,000 alerts notifying us of data changes on PDB. We were able to review these changes and update our database with minimal intervention. This is a major advancement in our journey to managing by exception.”

For carriers, Alerts 2.0 automatically updates licensing data without the need to rely on individuals or distributors for updates. Distributors benefit from automatic notifications on appointments. In the event that producers are appointed by carriers that are not approved or do not have sell agreements, Xchange notifies the distributors immediately, enabling them to take corrective action.

Alerts 2.0 will be among the solutions featured by RegEd at the upcoming SILA National Education Conference in San Antonio, Texas, on September 18-21, 2016. During the conference, RegEd representatives will highlight the firm’s innovative enterprise solutions for contracting/onboarding, appointment processing and credentialing management.

Regulators and Industry Experts Address Key Trends and Challenges at Fifth Annual RegEd Compliance Alliance Conference

Regulators and Industry Experts Address Key Trends and Challenges at Fifth Annual RegEd Compliance Alliance Conference

Financial services compliance, licensing and registration, and operations professionals assembled at the fifth annual RegEd Compliance Alliance (RCA) conference to share best practices, build critical knowledge across a range of topics, and engage with regulators and industry experts. The event was held April 18-20 in Charleston, SC and was attended by more than 150 representatives from financial services firms, regulatory agencies, consultancies, and law firms. The conference focused on issues and topics of critical concern for the attendees, including:

  • The DOL Fiduciary Rule and its potential impact on the industry: The recently issued rulemaking expands the definition of “fiduciary” to include individuals who provide retirement investment advice to investors in Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) and other investment accounts not covered by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (“ERISA”), requiring that investment advice be offered solely based on the best interest of the client. The rule will impact the retirement advice industry and change the manner in which advisors provide retirement recommendations to their clients and get paid for such advice. Significant compliance implications are expected in, among other areas, conflicts of interest disclosures, fee- vs. commission-based models, variable annuities and IRA sales, as well as potential customer account repapering requirements based on business decisions made by the firm.
  • Managing Conflicts of Interest: FINRA’s 2016 Regulatory and Examination Priorities Letter cited firm culture and effective conflicts of interest management as key areas of focus for 2016, and was followed by a February targeted exam letter that confirmed the attention of the regulator on the issue of “cultural values” and conflicts management. Efficiently managing conflicts of interest requires compliance professionals to understand and implement best practices for tracking, monitoring, and disclosing conflicts of interest, including outside business activities, gifts and entertainment, and political contributions. Firms must also establish rigorous internal controls for effective resolution of conflicts and risk mitigation.
  • Cybersecurity: Identified as a top criminal priority by the FBI, preventing cyber intrusions is at the forefront of consumer protection and security concerns in the financial services industry. Compliance and IT professionals must have the latest information related to issues of cybersecurity resources, compliance, risk analysis, policies and procedures, pitfalls, response plans, and best practices to help protect the organization and consumers from cyber threats.

Commenting on RCA 2016, John Schobel, RegEd Chief Executive Officer said, “It was wonderful to have our clients gather in beautiful historic Charleston to spend time with the RegEd team and hear from industry experts and regulators, who shared their insights and practical guidance.”  Schobel continued, “Equipped with new knowledge and best practices, conference participants are better prepared to tackle their most pressing challenges in today’s demanding business and regulatory environment.”

During the conference RegEd announced the expansion of RegEd SCORE® to include SCORE Rep Dashboard, which enables firms to provide registered representatives with a clear, consolidated view of individual compliance requirements. With SCORE Rep Dashboard firms can streamline compliance for the firm’s registered population, improve frontline defense against non-compliance exposure, and demonstrate a culture of compliance and commitment to consumer protection.
