- First dedicated online global community for compliance professionals will enable peer group information exchange and best practice exposure to provide clarity to new and opaque regulation -

London, UK, New York, NY and Dubai, UAE — October 29, 2007 — The world’s first online networking community for compliance executives was launched today by Complinet, the leading provider of solutions that dynamically deliver relevant compliance intelligence to industry professionals. MyComplinet is a single online platform where compliance practitioners in the financial services industry can connect and network with each other, seek answers to compliance-related questions, and access up-to-date information and analysis.

Complinet has created the MyComplinet community to address a growing need among compliance professionals to connect regularly and securely with their peers in other organisations nationally and globally.

Julie Garvin, Director of Customer Programs at Complinet, said: “The move away from prescription towards principles-based regulation has created an atmosphere of uncertainty that is spurring demand for more cross-industry discussion, guidance and access to information about compliance best practice. As a trusted provider of compliance intelligence to 1,200 regulated entities in 81 countries, Complinet is already a focal point for the global compliance community. It’s a logical next step for us to help members of that community to connect more easily with each other.”

“We expect to sign up 100,000 new community members in the first three years,” she added.

Membership of MyComplinet is free to anyone working in compliance in the financial services industry. It provides access to a comprehensive set of online networking and information services, including:

Message Board: A discussion board where MyComplinet members can post questions, contribute to discussion topics and network with their peers nationally and internationally.

Newsfeed: Regulatory and compliance news from around the globe, including analysis and comment from Complinet’s in-house team of compliance experts and selected third-party specialists. The newsfeed provides MyComplinet members with a single source of information on current and future regulatory developments in their chosen areas of interest. Members can also access selected content from Informer, Complinet’s quarterly customer publication. Members who are not Complinet customers have the option to upgrade to receive premium content.
