FIA Innovator 2018


1 October 2018, London: Leading regulatory technology firm Kaizen Reporting today announced that it has been selected as one of a small group of companies to attend the fourth annual Futures Industry Association (FIA) Innovator’s Pavilion, a specialised programme developed to promote innovation and entrepreneurship in the derivatives industry. Taking place from the 16-18th October alongside the FIA Futures and Options Expo in Chicago, the pavilion will allow the selected firms to showcase their innovations and share their insight with expo attendees.

The pavilion was launched for fintech firms offering forward-thinking solutions for the global derivatives market, while the Chicago Futures and Options Expo, now in it’s 34th year, attracts over 4,500 traders, brokers and other industry professionals to the city and accommodates over 120 vendors.

Founded in 2013 by former regulator Dario Crispini to improve the quality of regulatory reporting in the financial services industry, the company’s automated ReportShield™ quality assurance service is pioneering in its approach to testing regulatory reports, giving financial institutions full visibility of the quality of their reporting.

Kaizen counts among its clients some of the world’s largest banks, asset managers, hedge funds and brokers. Recently, the firm has undergone a period of impressive growth and success, notably winning a prestigious Queens Award for Innovation in 2017, among various other nominations and wins. 

Dario Crispini, CEO of Kaizen, commented: “We are proud to have been chosen as an innovator and look forward to working with the FIA.  We see it as further recognition of the uniqueness of the service we provide. It is our mission to continuously better firms’ regulatory reporting data quality and an opportunity as valuable as this only furthers that cause.”

Ian Rennie, Managing Director of Kaizen, added: “The Innovators’ Pavilion is an award-winning programme and we look forward to introducing our service to everyone at the expo as well as demonstrating our commitment to transforming the way financial institutions approach regulatory compliance.”
