Russell Investments has selected ACA Group’s Regulatory Reporting Monitoring and Assurance (ARRMA) service to manage its transaction reporting arrangements. The deal covers EMIR reporting and adds to ACA’s provision of MiFIR assurance reviews for Russell Investments since May 2021. The service combines technology and consulting, and will help the investment firm identify and remediate transaction reporting issues quickly.

“What ARRMA provides is independent assurance, with an additional layer of technical insight and practical, pragmatic support through consulting expertise,” says Mark Smith, compliance director, EMEA at Russell Investments. “ACA will help improve the efficiency of our reporting processes over time.”

ARRMA supports firms in evidencing the robustness of their reporting systems and, as necessary, leads to early identification and rectification of reporting issues. It can be combined with ACA’s ComplianceAlpha surveillance solution, which Russell Investments is already using. The surveillance solution allows further analysis of any findings, making the data more valuable to the business. The integration is available via a direct file upload mechanism on ACA’s ComplianceAlpha platform.

Charlotte Longman, director and co-lead on ACA’s ARRMA service explains: “Firms face increasing industry-wide demand from external stakeholders for comprehensive and transparent compliance oversight. ARRMA is a cost-effective solution that helps firms of all types and sizes with their reporting, from sophisticated and established firms like Russell Investments to boutique start-ups.”
