Who We Are

Ascent helps its customers follow laws and regulations. We are a new type of company, a “RegTech” organization that combines a SaaS platform with intelligent content to provide customized tools and targeted advice for our customers. We’re using modern techniques like machine learning and predictive analytics to stay on the cutting edge of our industry.

The Ascent platform makes it easy for compliance officers in regulated industries to see exactly what is expected of their companies, then track and report on the steps they’re taking to stay compliant. The efficient intelligence we provide helps our customers fulfill the spirit (and letter) of their obligations in a way that lets them breathe easy and focus on crafting value for their own customers through their core business.

We’re a team of compliance officers, lawyers, data scientists, and technologists united by the goal of helping you know your business so well that you not only follow your obligations but anticipate your future exposure. We combine decades of experience of actionable insights that are built into the platform.

He/she also values work-life balance for everyone. This person keeps our company values in mind, has a strong sense of integrity, and prioritizes doing the right thing.
