UnaVista's Consulting Partner Programme hits a milestone

07 May 2021 Consultancy.uk 10 min. read

UnaVista has hit a milestone in its Consulting Partner Programme, growing the number of partners to fifteen since its launch three years ago.

With over 60,000 users across six continents in the financial services, energy and corporate sectors, UnaVista is one of the world’s most used platforms for operational and regulatory risk. Using UnaVista’s reporting, reference data and analytics solutions, companies comply with a range of major regulations including EMIR, MiFIR and SFTR, and enhance their risk management processes.

To support its global user base, UnaVista (which is part of the London Stock Exchange Group) has a Consulting Partner Programme, launched in September 2018 following the success of its similar programme for software firms. Consultancies that are admitted to UnaVista’s partner ranks are firms that have “deep knowledge of UnaVista’s solutions and a demonstrated track record of successful delivery.”

Clients of UnaVista are advised to use these vetted consulting firms for their UnaVista-related risk & regulatory advisory and implementation work. Meanwhile, consultants that are part of the programme are provided with access to the latest knowledge and expertise, UnaVista’s deep repository of reporting data and the marketplace expertise of the London Stock Exchange.

The programme launched with eleven founding partners, and since then four more consultancy firms have joined lifting the total number of partners to fifteen:
