Dublin, Ireland – February 11, 2020 – MyComplianceOffice Ltd. (“MCO” or the “Company”) has secured a debt investment from Accel-KKR Credit Partners, a fund managed by Accel-KKR, a leading global software-focused investment firm headquartered in Silicon Valley.
MCO provides compliance solutions for financial institutions and corporations globally. The software monitors employee stock trading, manages material non-public information, analyzes vendor risk, and performs other key compliance requirements.
“Today, MCO is a leader in compliance software but we started from humble beginnings,” said Brian Fahey, CEO and Founder. “We have been self-financed since the beginning and grew over the years by listening to our customers and building solutions that they need. When we considered bringing on institutional capital to consolidate ownership amongst the lead internal shareholders, we were very selective. We wanted to work with a firm that understood entrepreneurship and particularly, software business models – and Accel-KKR was the perfect fit. We are excited about the next phase of our trajectory.”
“Brian and his team have built a great business by being laser focused on a complex niche in the compliance space,” said Samantha Shows, Managing Director at Accel-KKR. “MyComplianceOffice is a critical component in a firm’s strategy to meet its compliance obligations. We look forward to continuing to see MCO add value through its product development and increased market penetration.”
Founded in 2005 and headquartered in New York, MCO provides compliance management software that enables companies around the world to reduce their risk of misconduct. The MyComplianceOffice platform lets compliance professionals demonstrate they are proactively managing the regulated activities of employees, third-party vendors, and other agents of the firm. Available as a unified suite or à la carte, our easy-to-use and extensible SaaS-based solutions get clients up and running quickly and cost-efficiently. Visit mycomplianceoffice.com to learn more.
