Continuity to Provide Compliance Tech for Affinity FCU

Compliance management solutions company Contiuity is making the banking industry more compliant through a new partnership with Affinity Federal Credit Union.

The New Jersey-based credit union, with $3.1 billion AUM, will implement Continuity’s RegAdvisor Pro and RegControls to make its compliance management more efficient. RegAdvisor Pro analyzes and summarizes regulatory changes; monitors the federal register for new issuances; and provides policy review, updates, and board approval using pre-built procedures. RegControls offers pre-built procedures for consumer compliance, BSA/AML, lending operations, deposit operations, and Community Reinvestment Act and Fair Lending compliance.

Affinity selected Continuity because of its “strong presence and reputation in the industry.” The credit union will use the new tools to analyze regulations, implement compliance actions, monitor activity, and create reports. Olivia Leach, compliance officer at Affinity, said, “Continuity’s technology takes the guess work out of compliance by helping us to easily determine how regulations impact us, and then supporting associated implementation and training actions. The platform assigns different tasks to the appropriate employee, boosting accountability and transparency of the overall compliance management process.”

Affinity has onboarded its marketing and PR, loan administration and consumer lending, and mortgage origination divisions to Continuity. “Compliance touches everything, which is why it’s a priority for us to maintain a strong and pervasive culture of compliance. Continuity provides employees with detailed steps for understanding and applying compliance management to their daily functions, making the entire process easier and delivering new levels of transparency,” added Leach.

Headquartered in Connecticut, Continuity’s solutions serve hundreds of financial institutions across the U.S. and its territories. The company debuted at FinovateSpring 2010. In addition to partnerships with Iberia Bank and Apple Bank announced earlier this year, Continuity received a Marcum Tech Top 40 Award in 2017.

Continuity Control Announces $10 Million Investment

Thumbnail image for ContinuityControlLogo2.jpg

Referring to its $10 million investment as “growth funding,” compliance-management specialist Continuity Control says it is even better positioned to expand its regulatory intelligence platform for FIs.

The company’s total capital now stands at $12 million.

River Cities Capital Fund led the way in an investment round that included participation from BancVue and the family of IBM founder Thomas Watson, as well as others. Impressively, the $10 million raised was twice the amount Continuity Control had initially sought.

Speaking of the investment, Continuity Control CEO and Co-founder Andy Greenawalt said, “The interest generated in this round of investment further validates our vision for compliance management and the opportunity it represents in the community financial industry.”
What will Continuity Control do with the additional capital? According to the company, research and development are near the top of the list. But faster movement overall is what Continuity Control is counting on with the new investment. “The faster we progress, the sooner we’ll fulfill our mission to eliminate the tedious, manual effort historically involved with compliance management.”
An innovator in the field of compliance technology for financial institutions, Continuity Control specializes in helping credit unions and community banks reduce the costs and time involved in meeting regulatory requirements.
Founded in 2008 and headquartered in New Haven, Connecticut, Continuity Control demoed its technology at FinovateSpring 2010. See the company’s demo video here.
