Who We Are

Founded by former compliance officers, regulators, lawyers and technology professionals, Ascent was started to reduce the complexities and costs around regulatory compliance. Ascent has assembled a team of passionate professionals that embrace this vision, aspire to serve the compliance community and create world-class technology.

As a RegTech (regulatory technology) company, we combine domain AI, machine learning, and natural language processing with human expertise to curate regulatory intelligence. This Intelligence-as-a-Service, “INTaaS”, creates value by (1) converting thousands of paragraphs of regulatory text into workable tasks, making it easy for compliance teams to understand their obligations, 2) providing reference documents to give customers additional insight, and 3) updating customers when relevant regulations change, allowing them to respond more quickly. The automated delivery of this intelligence minimizes the manual process of searching websites, documents and other sources to determine what their businesses have to comply with.

Additionally, Ascent delivers this intelligence via a SaaS platform that helps customers build, manage, and automate their compliance processes so they can stay ahead of the overwhelming and ever-changing amount of regulation. Overall, we centralize our customers’ compliance activities -- saving money, increasing efficiency, and mitigating risk.

Ascent Values

Integrity: Ourselves and our Data. Proactively Do the Right Thing.

Cooperation: Trust, Learn, Grow.

Persistence: Excellence, Focus, Efficiency, Openness, and Impact.

Customer Obsession: Maximize Value Proposition.

Innovation: Cutting-Edge, Long-Term-Value. Building “Magic”.

Ascent is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.

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.
