Investment Fund Management Organization

Meets FCA, Data Protection and Storage Regulations

Installed in just one day, Aqilla is meeting all requirements with a fully compliant and flexible solution, suitable to the needs of a growing business.

This Investment Fund Management organisation wanted to replace their legacy, on premise system with a cloud-based accounting solution that was cost effective, available anywhere and was wholly compliant with the

Financial Conduct Authority’s regulations on data protection and storage. In addition to meeting compliance, Aqilla was considered “clearer and easier to use” than other cloud solutions but it was the strong Excel integration that was of particular appeal to this organization.

Key considerations and requirements

  • Data Sovereignty
  • Adherence to strict FCA regulatory requirements
  • Affordable with “Big system”
  • functionality in the Cloud
  • Effective Disaster Recovery
  • And, of course, data security was paramount

Goals Achieved

  • Robust, compliant, wholly protected data storage – regardless of data residency
  • A cloud-native solution that meets all conduct and regulatory requirements
  • Legacy on-premise features, without the big ticket price
  • Full integration with Microsoft Excel
  • Less than one day to implement

It was installed in just one day and I could go ahead and post a catch-up of the last few months. Aqilla’s consultant talked me through the set up and gave me enough information to get going. I just needed two additional training sessions over the next six months, on specific areas.
