CEO & Founder
At InnReg we resolve a myriad of complex compliance issues for cutting edge clients in highly regulated industries.
You bring us a disruptive idea in a highly regulated business environment, and we’ll creatively chart a path to overcome your regulatory obstacles. We sift through black, white and gray areas to identify all the pertinent regulatory issues. Then we conduct product strategy sessions to identify the most viable approach to maneuvering safely and securely around those obstacles, while maintaining the integrity of the original product design.
Many clients outsource their entire compliance function to InnReg. For us, that’s the true testament to the quality of our solutions, and the trust we engender.
We look forward to meeting you, learning about your goals and challenges, and exploring how outsourced compliance consulting could support your long-term growth objectives.
InnReg was founded in 2013 by Francesco Matteini, the former Chief Compliance Officer at TradeKing and Zecco, online brokers he helped launch and merge into the 6th largest online BD in the US with 500,000 customers and $2.6 billion invested assets. The combined company was acquired by Ally Bank in 2016.
InnReg has helped fintech innovators launch and grow their businesses by supporting, and often owning, their compliance function. Since our founding, we have helped launch disruptive fintech startups like Lenny Credit, GoodApril, Stockpile, and SparkGift. We have also supported the growth initiatives of several established fintech and financial services companies such as LendingTree, City National Bank of Florida, and BCI Securities.
