What makes us different

Focus

At iXendar, we focus exclusively on our clients’ regulatory compliance challenges.

Strategy

We don’t use the term strategy lightly: defining and executing on a compliance strategy is a not a simple task. No company –regulated or not- can afford to ignore the legal, financial and reputational risks created by noncompliance to regulations. However, keeping the line of sight while being in the line of fire is hard: on one side, the regulatory ecosystem has become global, complex, highly entropic and difficult to navigate, while on the other side, operational constraints and compliancy cost burden are growing. With so many variables to take into account, from the consequences of world events to the growing peril of personal liability, we are convinced that our client’s compliance teams need end-to-end guidance more than ever.

Technology

Banking, finance and treasury are all undergoing a major shift from massive closed banking ecosystems and ERP applications exchanging files, to nimble cloud-based modules exchanging real-time information flows through APIs. As a support function of these flows, compliance has become extremely dependent on technology, for operational efficiency reasons, but also because of the growing importance of the corporate and fintech sector.

We have a deep understanding of the legacy and current technology stacks, allowing us to help at all levels from business and operating models to technical architecture. This is required not only to understand how compliance tools and systems work, but also how they integrate into your compliance policies and processes to form a consistent line of defense. No enterprise can nowadays operate its compliance technology in isolation. Interfacing with other systems, both internal and external, is essential to the successful execution of a compliance strategy.
