Subscribe to our newsletter

Compliance.ai, a provider of regulatory change management solutions, has secured $6 million of funding, which it will use to promote market growth and expansion. At the same time, the company has brought in a new CEO, Asif Alam, who will replace Kayvan Alikhani, who will continue innovating Compliance.ai products as co-founder and chief product/strategy officer.

The funding comes from existing investor Cota Capital and new investment partner JAM FINTOP, and follows a $3 million Series A funding round led by Cota Capital in December 2020.

Commenting on the investment, John Philpott at JAM FINTOP, says: “Our banking partners have ranked transformation of regulatory compliance change management as one of their immediate priorities. Compliance.ai can address this critical need for financial services organisations.” Bobby Yazdani, founder and partner at Cota Capital, adds: “With a strong executive team, the company is well positioned to be a leader in the RegTech market.”

Compliance.ai offers a cloud-based regulatory change management platform that proactively monitors sources of new regulations and uses AI to contextualise updates into actionable insights that can help firms mitigate compliance risk. Recently, the company expanded its platforms to provide access to regulatory change management applicable in more than 25 countries.

Asif Alam joins Compliance.ai after serving as chief strategy officer at ThoughtTrace, an AI-powered document reader solution acquired by Thomson Reuters earlier this year. He brings more than 20 years of management and business experience to Compliance.ai, with past employers including Crux Informatics, Finastra, and Thomson Reuters.
