Powerful digital vault technology enables an optimized workflow experience and a well-designed compliance program for investment professionals
NEW YORK, April 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Zephyr, a subsidiary of Informa plc (LSE: INF), and a recognized leader in financial services software for investment professionals via their Zephyr investment management platform has entered into a strategic partnership with FutureVault, an industry-leading provider of SEC and FINRA-compliant digital document vault solutions. FutureVault has been at the forefront of developing software to address crucial compliance requirements.
In March of this year, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) released the Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs, providing revised guidance requirements for corporate compliance. At issue according to the document: 1. Is the corporation’s compliance program well designed? 2. Is the program being applied earnestly and in good faith? In other words, is the program adequately resourced and empowered to function effectively? 3. Does the corporation’s compliance program work in practice?

FutureVault’s innovative technology provides seamless digital document retention in a secure, organized environment. Its secure document exchange enables the automated delivery of statements and reports to clients and institutions.
“The new remote workplace for both investors and advisors has ushered in more forms of digital communication,” says Chris Volpe, head of Informa’s Zephyr business. “FutureVault technology automates the transfer of digital documents into a secure digital vault, which we believe satisfies the DOJ’s requirement of a well-designed compliance program.”
FutureVault also offers expanded benefits for advisors through the company’s Personal Life Management Vault™. These individual digital vaults can be assigned to clients to house their investment documents. In addition, other important documents can also be uploaded. The client manages access to their vault via entitlements.
“We see numerous applications for FutureVault’s Personal Life Management Vault™. It serves to ensure firms, advisors, and clients have seamless access to critical information, data, and documents on demand. It also expands the client-advisor relationship, creating a unique engagement model for generational services,” adds Volpe.
“We know all too well that firms and advisors are faced with a considerable amount of workflow challenges with respect to technology, making it difficult for them to properly scale,” says Daniel Kenny, Chief Executive Officer at FutureVault. “Partnering with Chris Volpe and the exceptional team at Zephyr positions us to continue delivering a best-of-breed ecosystem of solutions for our clients that addresses industry challenges and elevates the experience for both clients and advisors across the board.”
The Zephyr and FutureVault integration is scheduled for late Q2 2023.
