RegTech incubator Codify adds five new fintechs to its programme

Vasilis Tsolis, CEO of Cognitiv+

Codify, SEI’s London-based RegTech incubator, has announced the newest group of start-ups joining the programme. The new participants encompass a range of emerging technologies designed to help financial services businesses reduce their development burdens and operating risks. These include:

  • All Street – a provider of independent investment research on private and listed small-cap and investment vehicles, directly connecting owners of capital with the long-term needs of small business
  • KiteEdge – an enterprise search platform for the asset management industry to find, collaborate and leverage content across complex organisations
  • KyoLab – enables audit trails and dispute resolution for digital communications applications in order to bridge the gap between regulatory compliance and mobile messaging for regulated financial services companies
  • Lodestar Ecosystems – builds robo-assistants for asset managers, traders and brokers to improve trade-flow productivity and helps users make informed buy and sell decisions
  • Waymark – uses artificial intelligence to help legal and compliance teams automatically and continually track, identify and analyse regulatory requirements, whilst identifying crossovers and conflicts between incoming regulations and making recommendations to ensure compliance

Codify, which launched last April, provides participants business resources and development opportunities, including office space, mentors, access to a network of partners and customers, and the chance to formally pitch their technology solution(s) for potential investment and/or equity opportunities consideration.

Now in its 50th year of business, SEI is a global provider of investment processing, investment management, and investment operations solutions that help corporations, financial institutions, financial advisors, and ultra-high-net-worth families create and manage wealth.

Since its 2017 launch, Codify has established successful relationships, including its engagement with Cognitiv+ (Cognitiv) to explore components of artificial intelligence for the analysis and management of contractual obligations.

Ahsan Mallick, General Counsel at SEI UK and executive sponsor of Codify, said: “We are pleased to be working with Codify participants to test emerging technologies across SEI. These projects create opportunities to effectively analyse the latest, leading tech trends, with a view toward helping our clients reduce their development burdens and operating risks.”

Through its incubator, SEI has developed and maintained key relationships, including Cognitiv, which joined Codify in late 2017. SEI will utilise Cognitiv’s artificial intelligence capabilities to read, process, and summarise legal documentation, as well as identify, extract, and update critical legislative and regulatory data.

Vasilis Tsolis, CEO of Cognitiv+, said:“Wealth and asset managers are under continuous pressure to minimise costs and comply with numerous regulations. SEI’s insight into the needs of the financial services market, as well as their understanding of industry-wide contractual and regulatory requirements, enables us to develop algorithms that identify risks and opportunities across multiple agreements. We are excited to work alongside SEI to continue technology’s evolution in the legal landscape.”

SEI’s Codify is the first London-based incubator designed solely for financial regulation technology developers. It provides participants with office space, mentors, access to a network of partners and customers, and the chance to formally pitch their technology solution(s) for potential investment and/or equity opportunities consideration.*
