RegEd Selected as “Best-in-Class” Solution for 1st Global’s Enterprise Empowerment Initiative
RegEd, the leading provider of enterprise Compliance Management, Licensing and Registration and Compliance Education solutions, has announced a partnership with 1st Global, an independent wealth management partner to exceptional CPA firms, to be a part of the company’s Enterprise Empowerment Initiative (EEI). 1st Global recently announced a firm-wide overhaul of its technology infrastructure and RegEd solutions will serve as a key component for the initiative and drive efficiency across a range of critical business processes.
After an extensive due diligence process, 1st Global selected RegEd to manage advertising compliance, registration renewal, firm element training, outside business activities reconciliation, personal securities account management and new advisor licensing as part of the new platform. 1st Global will also utilize RegEd SCORE® Risk Control Center, which delivers a comprehensive view into the status of compliance requirements at the company level or specific to the individual.
“1st Global’s empowerment initiative demonstrates the firm’s ongoing commitment to compliance excellence in enabling employees and partners to adapt to a changing business landscape,” commented John M. Schobel, Chief Executive Officer at RegEd. “The role that integrated technology and effective data management play in an undertaking like this cannot be overstated. We’re pleased that RegEd was selected for the breadth of our solution suite and an unmatched ability to holistically address 1st Global’s rigorous requirements.”
The EEI began to take form more than two years ago when 1st Global’s senior executive team identified the firm’s need to enable its affiliated firms and the people in its own organization to better serve their clients. Over time, the initiative has evolved into the largest investment in internal infrastructure in the company’s 24-year history.
“We are incredibly excited about the launch of the Enterprise Empowerment Initiative, which will deliver the resources and capabilities to enable the continued success of our business,” said Adam Schaub, Chief Compliance Officer for 1st Global Capital Corp. and leader of the new compliance system. “Our affiliated advisors and home office employees benefit greatly from partnering with leading providers like RegEd to ensure that 1st Global’s technology resources represent the gold standard of our industry and enable compliance and operational excellence across the organization.”
