InvestGRC™: A market-leading RegTech solution: InvestGRC™ is an award-winning* solution which aggregates asset positions and other relevant compliance and risk management data and automatically produces Solvency II quantitative reporting templates (QRT) on a client-specified frequent basis.

It also allows Insurers to conduct their own risk and solvency assessments on their investment-related business. Importantly, since mid-2017 InvestGRC™ has included the automated production and publication of complex Key Information Documents (KIDs) in relation to the PRIIPs (Packaged Retail and Insurance-based Investment Products) which came into force earlier this month.

InvestGRC™ completely meets the requirements of fund administration in one system available in three different software delivery models, namely;

  • on-premises
  • SaaS hosted on Microsoft Azure™
  • delivery by a licensed FRS outsource partner

Chief Marketing Officer at FRS, Frank Carr said; “We are delighted that InvestGRC™ has been named as a finalist in the FStech Awards, and continues to gain recognition within the industry as a market-leading RegTech solution.” “In discussions with the industry last year, we found many companies were directly impacted by stringent PRIIPs regulation coming into effect from Jan 1st 2018, and it was decided that InvestGRC™ must include the PRIIPs module. Uniquely our software caters for the complex requirements of both fund of funds PRIIPs and open architecture wrapped products.”

The winners will be determined by an independent judging panel and announced at the renowned FStech Awards Gala and Dinner on 22 March 2018 at the London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square.
