Founded in 2017

The company originated in 2010 as a consulting group for investment banks and asset managers. In response to the mounting challenges of controlling operational risk across the financial services industry, it evolved to become a data and technology platform business.

On 31st August 2017, the consulting group redefined its purpose and the idea for Acin was born.

In 2018, the company launched its master library for risks and controls, the first of its kind, based on the Basel II framework and was recognised as one of the most innovative Regtech companies in 2019. February 2019 saw the rebranding of the company as Acin and a strategic vision for Acin to become the go-to platform for operational risk data and data standards.

Transforming financial services’ approach to operational risk control

Acin has built the defining data network for operational risk control. We are on a mission to make financial institutions safer and transform the industry’s approach to operational risk control, through the use of data.

Many leading global financial institutions are Acin customers, leveraging the collective power of the Acin Network to make better informed decisions and increase operational resilience.
