StarCompliance Welcomes New Client: Public Trust Advisors, LLC

StarCompliance to provide compliance software to further manage and reduce firm risk

Rockville, MD, June 09, 2021 – StarCompliance (“Star”), a leading provider of financial compliance technology solutions, announced its new partnership with Public Trust Advisors, LLC—an investment advisory firm headquartered in Denver, Colorado—to deliver StarCompliance’s best-in-class software to the company’s employees.


Barry Howsden, CCO at Public Trust Advisors, commented on the firm’s investment in the StarCompliance software: “We had been managing our compliance program manually for years, and determined that it was time to adopt a software that could increase our efficiency and effectiveness. Ultimately, we chose the STAR Platform because of its ease of use and Star’s product development philosophy. We’re confident that we selected a software that will be able to help us now, and scale with us as our needs change and evolve moving forward.”


StarCompliance has over 20 years of experience building configurable compliance technology, supporting a global client base across a range of financial service disciplines. StarCompliance’s employee conflicts of interest platform is scalable and easy-to-use for employees at all levels of an organization, and helps financial firms reduce risk, gain efficiencies, and drive adoption around their employee compliance programs.


“We’re honored to have been chosen by Public Trust Advisors as their first-ever software solution to help manage compliance,” remarked StarCompliance CRO Paul Hebert. “Bringing automation to a compliance program for the first time is rewarding because we understand how challenging and demanding the job is when technology isn’t being leveraged. We’re looking forward to working with Public Trust as they find new ways to optimize and streamline their compliance program with the STAR Platform.”
