Chicago-based RegTech provider Ascent has won $19.3 million in Series B funding from a group of investors led by Wells Fargo and ING, with US venture capital firm Drive Capital and the University of Chicago also taking part. The fundraising follows a Series A round in 2018 which raised $6 million. The company will use the capital to recruit new talent, enhance its existing products, and increase brand awareness. Ascent provides an AI-powered compliance platform and is currently carrying out pilot testing with the Global Financial Innovation Network (GFIN).
