The role of the compliance officer has never been more demanding, with new markets, new asset classes and complex data challenges. Firms are looking for agile partners able to address issues quickly in a fast-moving landscape. I believe Eventus is well positioned to attract new clients with its next-generation technology, machine learning and deeply experienced staff. I’ve been really impressed by the Validus platform and by how quickly it can be enhanced to meet clients’ bespoke needs.
Earlier in March, Eventus hired Josh Bosquez to Chief Technology Officer.
