Blockchain is a hot topic in financial services due to it’s ability to make transactions more immediate, secure and transparent. There are endless opportunities for financial services firms to leverage blockchain to significantly reduce compliance risks and reduce compliance costs.   In this week’s feature on Irish Technology companies, we take a closer look at Gecko Governance, a company that leverages bllockchain technology to support companies comply with stringent and demanding compliance requirements.

What they do?

Operating at the cutting edge of the RegTech space, GECKO Governance is a Blockchain-based solution to easily allow fund managers monitor and manage their regulation and compliance requirements. They are the first in the market to offer this service.

With GECKO Governance fund managers can schedule all their end to end compliance and regulatory tasks as well as provide verifiable independent audit trail of compliance to satisfy global financial regulators requirements.

How they are different?

We asked them about their USP: “We are the first company in the Funds industry to integrate or use Blockchain technology for the management of fund data with regards to their AML/KYC , Operational Due Diligence (ODD), Fund Launch and On-Boarding.”

Led by Canary Wharf veteran Shane Brett, their team of 12 operate in the EU, US and Australian markets with offices in Dundalk, London, New York and the impressive new financial services center on Sydney’s famed waterfront.

Gecko Governance has won numerous awards, including being nationally shortlisted for “Best Digital Online Start Up” in the Bank of Ireland Start up Awards (2016) and being listed as one of the Top 100 Start-Ups in Ireland by the Sunday Business Post.
