Integrity ResearchCompliance AccreditationsSM affirm that a research firm’s compliance controls comply with industry best practices. To receive accreditation, research firms undergo due diligence to demonstrate that they not only have appropriate compliance policies, but also that policies are understood and actually practiced.
Accreditations address the concerns among asset managers that their research sources have adequate compliance safeguards. Accreditations enhance the consistency and transparency of research providers’ compliance platforms.
To receive accreditation, research firms need to demonstrate that they follow each of the key compliance controls associated with the type of research they produce, as well as a majority of the overall best practices relevant to the research processes of the firm.
An accreditation demonstrates a research provider’s commitment to compliance best practices. Third party confirmation of compliance best practices helps to overcome compliance objections from prospective users. Accredited firms find the sales process expedited by eliminating compliance roadblocks.
