Centralized. Comprehensive. Current.

Effective Regulatory Change Management starts with timely, reliable, and smart regulatory monitoring: a time and resource intensive process.

Reg MatrixTM, CFM’s cloud-based regulatory intelligence portal, provides an efficient, streamlined means to stay informed of the ins-and-outs of the ever-changing regulatory environment.  Monitored and updated daily, Reg Matrix identifies relevant headlines and enforcement actions, provides clear summaries of regulatory initiatives written in plain English, and includes Impact Statements that deliver practical guidance regarding the application of specific headlines and enforcement actions to daily operations.

Whether it’s the latest SEC update on the Fiduciary Rule or a modification to an existing State rule, the Matrix will keep you and your team in the know.  Filters can be set so you see – and are notified of – only those topics that interest you. And to assist you in seeing your Regulatory Change Management process through, regulations can be linked to related policies to help identify necessary modifications, as well as to a library of relevant training courses available through CFM.​
