Resolving the operational risk conundrum - taking risk and controls management to a higher level.



Acin is the world's leading risk and control data standards, bench-marking and controls data analysis company. Acin’s breakthrough system is helping to change the way financial institutions collectively think about risk and controls in order to improve the way they are managed and monitored across the industry. That way, firms can demonstrate that they are "in-control" and provide greater assurance across the industry. 

What sets Acin apart is its centralised database of control designs smart-mapped to the risks faced by the individual business or function within a financial institution. Data is standardised, available, and reliable – at an industry level. More radical still, is Acin’s ability to connect firms together to create the industry’s first risk and control defence network. With a data set of risks and controls that is more comprehensive than that of any one institution and continuously updated via the network, this significantly strengthens each firm’s existing “three lines of defence”.

Acin’s highly advanced system of risk identification, management and mitigation enables connected firms to achieve the highest degrees of protection at an industry level. This in turn, empowers firms to reduce dramatically their operating costs. Acin has been recognised as one of the most innovative Regtech companies in 2019.
