Two New Tools for Compliance Teams

The illumis team is happy to announce two major releases for our political contribution monitoring platform. Standalone searching and enhanced candidate and committee data will help streamline workflows for compliance teams.

The new standalone search functionality makes it easy to do ad-hoc searches across our entire data set for individual contributors and companies where ongoing monitoring may not be necessary. And the enhanced candidate detail data provides additional details around the candidates and committees receiving contributions. This can significantly cut down on research time by pulling in additional details on candidate and office details.

Standalone Searches

Need to run a one-time check on an employee or new hire, but don’t need ongoing monitoring? We’ve added a new search functionality to the platform that makes these searches easy to perform - separate from the broader monitoring functionality. These searches still have all of the advanced filtering functionalities you’re able to use in monitoring to help eliminate false positives, and it is easy to export a quick report for any search.

Enhanced Candidate & Committee Data

We’re now augmenting contribution records with a substantial amount of additional candidate and office data, pulled in from separate filings and displayed across the platform. This added data will make it easier for users to see more clearly which candidate a contribution is actually going to, what position they hold or are running for, whether they are an incumbent and other details depending on the jurisdiction. Rather than having to do a lot of additional research around a contribution record, you’ll have that information pulled directly into the platform.

compliance updates

Pay-to-play rules and regulations, including the well-known Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) pay-to-play-rules, have become a focal point for compliance teams navigating the midterm elections in 2022. However, even in off years, or years with no major elections, for those firms who rely heavily on government contracted work, political contribution compliance can’t just turn off.

Ensure employees aren’t putting your firm at risk of reputational damage or costly violations by integrating a political contribution compliance platform into your tech stack.
