By Edlyn Cardoza
Accern, a leading no-code artificial intelligence (AI) platform for financial services, recently announced a new strategic partnership with LPA, the software and consulting firm focused on technology for the capital markets. The partnership will drive additional growth for both firms by combining LPA’s deep capital markets expertise with Accern’s platform, driving the adoption of AI-powered investment research among clients in North America, Europe, and Asia.
LPA provides technical innovations and consulting services for the capital market industry, optimizing processes and ensuring regulatory compliance. The partnership strategically aligns the long-term missions of both companies, aligning Accern’s approach to AI technology with LPA’s capital market and asset management expertise across AI and analytics, ESG, Risk and Compliance, and Distribution Advisory.
