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 help people automate compliance with rules and regulations in an easier and more cost-effective way. 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. Ascent has found a way to make these time and capital intensive tasks easier to manage and cheaper to comply with. Reasonable regulation is an important part of the free market, protecting consumers and leveling the playing field. But due to their complexity and sheer volume, regulations often feel more like a punitive burden. By reducing the cost of compliance Ascent is encouraging innovation, helping existing companies stay in business, and making it possible for new companies to get started. 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 creating value for their own customers through their core business.

We're currently focused on regulations in the financial services sector, though our platform is flexible enough to handle all regulated industries. We are backed by respected investors who strongly believe in the opportunity we're pursuing. We are located in downtown Chicago at Michigan/Jackson.
