Governor Software


Communicate your obligations, understand your status and prove your compliance – A key component of good Governance is good oversight. The key challenge to good oversight for medium and large institutions in heavily regulated industries is the communication of the obligations set out by external and internal stakeholders, and the subsequent proving of adherence to those same stakeholders.
We have a simple to use solution that enables financial services companies to enhance their oversight capabilities by 1) effectively communicating their internal and external obligations and 2) minimising the cost/time of collating and presenting proof of compliance.
Governor Software provides clients with the ability to deconstruct regulations, frameworks and policies into visual maps that clearly communicate the obligations that require oversight and then to be able to track the changes as they are made to the obligations. Secondly the solution provides the 1st line of defence with Key Indicators and assessment points, in order to record compliance and areas of concern, which may be interfaced to your internal systems. It enables business updates and comments to flow back to the 2nd line in a seamless manner. Finally, it presents the status of individual and overall compliance in the structure of the original regulation, framework or policy. All of this is completed in a structured and auditable process so that review and audit becomes less fraught. Unlike the current piecemeal approach, using spreadsheets, presentations and email, which makes creating a structured, comprehensive and auditable oversight process, either impossible or extremely inefficient.
For Senior Risk & Compliance Executives who want to minimise the cost and enhance the quality of oversight at their firm.
