September 2018 Update: Company Search & Automated Reporting

Company Search
illumis has always allowed you to monitor all of the political contributions made on a name-by-name basis. Now, our platform also allows you to search by employer company names as well.

Most jurisdictions mirror the Federal government’s reporting requirements – including requiring reporting of employer and occupation. With this new search functionality, not only does illumis let you monitor for contributions by employee name across all 50 states, federal data, and local jurisdictions, but you can also monitor by employer name.

Date Filters
illumis’ database contains hundreds of millions of contribution records (extending back decades in some jurisdictions), giving you a fully comprehensive contribution search that is updated daily with any new records. Now, you can filter that search to just include the last 6 months, the last 2 years, or a custom date range of your choice.

Automated Reporting Functionality
With this new feature, you can generate reports that show the searches and monitoring that were in place for a given time period, and whether any records were found for those searches. You can also set these reports to automatically generate and be emailed to you on a monthly or quarterly basis.

Please Note: This post was updated in June 2020 to reflect our company’s new name: illumis

Pay-to-play regulations (and associated risk) doesn’t simply turn off during the off-election years.

Fact: political contributions are on the rise.
compliance updates
Political activism is at an all time high. And with it? The pay-to-play risk for financial firms who rely on government contracted work. As the number of state and local pay-to-play rules increase, so do the number of stipulations compounding the complexity for firms potentially already struggling with the risk of violation. Not only do firms have to worry about complying with commonly known federal regulations like the SEC and FINRA pay-to-play rules, but also additional, specific state or local rules.
