Our Story

Technical DNA

Ruleguard started out in 2013 as a software ‘design and build’ agency that specialised in financial services projects, particularly those with a unique requirement for data and functionality that was far from being available ‘off the shelf’.

We delivered some innovative projects including the automation of KYC and onboarding processes, forward-ladder modelling and post-trade analytics, commodity-backed Sharia-compliant deposit and loan processing and the automation of various back-office financial services industry workflows.

CASS Automation

In 2014, we developed a prototype product to automate the workflows necessary for the new client asset (CASS) rules in response to the needs of our client, the Kyte Group, then owned by GFI, the global inter-dealer broker.

This initial foray into the development of our own IP was an immediate success and we had shortly licenced the first version of what would become our ‘Ruleguard’ product to several leading financial firms, including a global share registrar.

Angel Funding

From this early traction, we were able to secure £2.5M of funding from a London-based Angel network which supported the growth of our product set into offerings for SMCR compliance, breach and issue management, third-party oversight, and regulatory checklists. Our integrated platform appealed to the larger financial groups fatigued by dozens of regulatory ‘point solutions’ when what was needed was a single unified view of compliance operations across the enterprise.

Rapid Growth

Fast-forward to 2023 and we have established Ruleguard as one of the foremost offerings in the RegTech space, providing genuine compliance oversight to some of the largest and most complex financial institutions globally.

Future

Our client list includes leading asset managers, wealth managers, brokers, insurance firms and banks such as Computershare, Cazenove Capital, FNZ, OSTC, Quilter Cheviot, Santander, True Potential, Rathbones and Royal London.

 

We continue to work closely with our clients to identify the most painful aspects of compliance oversight and strive to build-out our platform to improve that governance with increased efficiency and reduced cost.

Our Core Values

Our core values represent the beliefs and principles that drive our business. They encourage better teamwork and collaboration.

We use these values as a practical tool to help evaluate our own behaviours, the performance of our teams, our service to clients and our return to shareholders.
