Acin has created a network, supported by a standardised library of risks and controls, that calibrates data and encourages the sharing of best practices amongst businesses.

Acin CEO and founder Paul Ford said: “Acin was conceived to make the industry safer, by enabling risk control content to be transformed into data and shared collaboratively, through anonymised benchmarking and sharing of best practice.

“This investment demonstrates that the market shares our vision of transforming risk management with data across the entire financial sector.”

JP Morgan chief controls manager Julian Liau said: “We have been working with Acin for the past three years, during which they have supported our established operational risk management and assessment practices.

“We are delighted to invest in Acin to support their network to grow through effective industry collaboration.”
