SDR Ventures Advises Compliance Resource Partners on Acquisition by ACA Group

SDR Ventures is pleased to announce that Compliance Resource Partners, Inc.  (“CRP” or “the Company”) has been acquired by ACA Group (“ACA”). SDR served as the exclusive sell-side advisor to Compliance Resource Partners throughout the transaction process.

Founded in 2001, CRP is a Colorado-based comprehensive provider of regulatory compliance to the financial services industry. The Company provides compliance advisory services to registered investment advisers in Colorado and across the US through a strong staff of compliance professionals with extensive real-world industry experience.

From the beginning, CRP has continually recognized that compliance is often overwhelming, intimidating, and sometimes downright unapproachable. CRP’s team has established itself as a leader in designing thoughtful compliance solutions, troubleshooting compliance issues and providing a “hands-on”, highly personalized service to its clients. With an increased level of scrutiny in today’s regulatory environment, it is critical to stay informed and be responsive to all regulatory issues that may impact clients. CRP prides itself on offering customized solutions for its clients and is committed to providing the personal and timely attention clients expect and deserve.

“In an increasingly compliance-driven world, having access to specialized expertise, paired with comprehensive Regulatory Technology across all areas of compliance is important to our clients,” said Kimberly Collins, president at Compliance Resource Partners. “Our team is incredibly thankful for the dedication that SDR Ventures brought throughout the entire process. Their team was instrumental in helping us identify a strategic partner that shared our values and commitment to excellence. We’re very happy to be joining the ACA team and their culture of high-quality advisory services and technology. We feel confident that ACA will help us better serve the growing needs of our clients and are excited to provide them a truly unique offering in GRC.”

ACA is the leading governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) advisor in financial services. ACA empowers its clients to reimagine GRC and protect and grow their businesses. Their innovative approach integrates advisory, managed services, distribution solutions, and analytics with its ComplianceAlpha® regulatory technology platform.

“We’re thrilled to welcome the CRP team to ACA Group, as we continue to target companies with top talent, great client service, and well-established GRC offerings to bolster our own offerings,” said Shvetank Shah, CEO of ACA Group. “As we continue to grow and evolve, we’re proud to stand out as a global industry leader of integrated solutions for GRC.”

“It was incredibly rewarding to assist Kimberly and the entire team at CRP in achieving their transaction goals. The CRP team has built an incredible business over the years and the level of service and dedication it provides to its clients should not go unnoticed,” added Mike Grande, Managing Director at SDR Ventures. “From the beginning, it was clear that CRP was well-positioned for continued growth with the support of a strong strategic partner. After identifying numerous potential partners, ACA Group emerged as the clear choice to ensure future success. The SDR Team is excited to watch CRP flourish as it enters its next chapter with ACA.”
