Recently, we’ve heard from several new and established investment advisers about launching a closed-end interval fund. These funds are alternative investments and a hybrid between mutual funds and traditional closed-end funds. We’re helping a few asset managers with these products, and the same is true for our business partners at the law firm, Practus, LLP.
As we continue to enhance our SaaS-based platform for automating compliance, we are also building out our services team. Today, another industry veteran joins Joot. John Williams, Director of Compliance Services, brings nearly three decades of regulatory compliance experience to Joot, with the last 14 as a chief compliance officer for a Broker-Dealer / RIA. He also has expertise in international operations, business continuity planning, cybersecurity and banking.
We are excited to announce the newest addition to the Joot team: Charles Black! Charles brings over 17 years of experience in the asset management industry, including roles in compliance, fund accounting, and fund administration. Charles has served as a compliance officer for both investment advisers and investment companies. Most recently, he served as the Chief Compliance Officer for a few mutual fund clients.
We are excited to announce the newest addition to the Joot team: John Ramirez! According to Bo Howell, CEO of Joot, the firm has been growing steadily and it is focused on building the right team to deliver both innovative technology and exceptional services.
Joot grows its team and area of expertise!
CINCINNATI, OHIO – August 1, 2019 - Joot, a leading provider of compliance technology and services to small and middle-sized investment advisers, today announced its merger of Advisory Compliance Solutions, LLC (ACS).

There is still some time (but not too much time) to get yourself into the beta program for Joot's NEW Policies and Testing Manager!
It’s summertime, and it's hot, very hot! But here at Joot, we’ve been working on some pretty cool things, and today, we’re announcing the launch of our beta program for the latest addition to our CCO Tech compliance platform: Policies and Testing Manager! (We’re considering a cooler name for this great tool, so if you have suggestions, leave a comment below. Personally, I wanted to call it Mjöllnir, but that doesn’t roll off the tongue.)
