Chartis has led financial crime research for years, and offers a unique perspective and expertise that it has continued to keep relevant with the changing landscape and direction of all the components of financial crime.”

“As part of a vendor selection project we initially engaged with another Analyst firm with a global brand in IT vendor selection. However, after two weeks we realised that selecting risk technology solutions requires deep domain expertise and practitioner level knowledge. Subsequently, we engaged Chartis to assist us with requirements specification and comparative scoring criteria for selecting a Market Risk BI Solution. The Chartis team very quickly highlighted key functional areas covering aggregation, drill-down, reporting and limits. They enabled us to understand the differences between generic BI vendors and risk BI vendors accelerating us through the short-list, proof-of-concept phases and the final decision. We feel that Chartis allowed us to make the right technology decision at a reduced cost. We will be using Chartis for all future risk technology investments.”

Gez Llanaj

“Firms are constantly looking at GRC technology to enable them grow their business and achieve competitive advantage.  But how do you compare so many vendors and solutions from a tactical and strategic perspective?  I found Chartis Research to provide an optimal blend of deep industry expertise, clear understanding of GRC challenges and high quality research re risk technology. This approach has helped us to drive trends and best practices of how technology can assist our clients in their journey of integrating ORM/ ERM into an enterprise GRC framework. I specifically like the holistic view of the analysis bringing risk and performance management together and technology market trends in this space.”

Gez Llanaj, Senior Manager, Risk Assurance Services, PwC


“We already had arrived at a short-list of three vendors for our integrated risk and finance system. However, our “big 4” advisors did not have enough knowledge of the competitive landscape and the deep understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the three shortlisted firms. We engaged Chartis to validate our selection process and help us with the final decision ($2.5m software purchase). Chartis’s independent view of each vendor supported by a variety of data points and proof points about each vendor allowed us to make the final decision with confidence. The speed with which Chartis brought clarity to our selection process was very impressive.”

Chief Risk Officer, Tier 2 European Retail Bank

In addition to helping us understand the market, Chartis provided excellent strategic advice for our line of business.”

Greg Grimer

“Chartis are the best connected research and market intelligence firm I know.  Others are well connected in some disciplines but less well connected in others.  Wherever I have worked, whether with suppliers of risk and compliance technology or practitioners in financial institutions, they nearly always know 'Chartis Research'.  Their access to range of senior people across disciplines is, in my opinion, unmatched.”

Greg Grimer, Member of Steering Committee London, PRMIA

Chartis have supported us with a number of risk technology investments, supporting us throughout the system selection process from requirements specification, RFI, RFP, short-list, PoC and final selection. The Chartis team and proprietary research reports have been critical to the successful implementation of our risk management systems.”
