Data Details


SEARCH MORE WIDELY 
With a database of over 14,000 nicknames, we capture name variations of your monitored employees and their family members to lessen the chance of risky activity going unnoticed. 

CAPTURE MORE BROADLY 
People can have more than one address. We capture them all, so you can be sure contributions aren’t going unmonitored just because the same person contributed in different states. 

FRESH DATA DAILY
Data is collected daily but how often it’s refreshed by the federal government, states, or municipalities can vary. Typically, the more populous the state the more frequently the data is published publicly. 

EXPORT WITH EASE
Data can be exported in an editable Excel/CSV format by employee groups or at the individual level so you can sort, manipulate, and review it on your own terms. 

DATA PRIVACY
Due to state privacy laws, users only have access to the contributions made by firm employees and their family members, not to the entire contribution database.

All Securities Are Equal – But Some Are More Equal Than Others

20 Feb, 2024

As mainstream adoption of digital assets increases globally, regulatory scrutiny is on the rise. As with any asset, conflicts of interest may arise when employees trade crypto assets, putting both the firm and individual employees at risk. With Rule 204A-1 of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 mandating that registered investment advisers adopt policies and procedures requiring their employees to report personal transactions and holdings in reportable securities, there is growing concern among firms that they may be held liable for the crypto trading activity of their employees.
