Email and Instant Messaging (IM) are indispensable tools and the primary means by which hedge fund and private equity firms communicate with their clients and associates. Email is largely accepted as legally compliant, and many of the same legal and regulatory standards regarding paper records now apply to email and IM.
Additionally, in today's changing environment, social media is becoming an important avenue through which firms collect and exchange information, therefore, it is essential firms archive messages from their social media accounts.
Without an archive solution that efficiently and effectively retains and retrieves email and IM records, the average investment firm risks high costs and difficulty fulfilling discovery and compliance obligations.
Our archiving service, Eze Archive, makes it easy for investment firms to efficiently retain, protect, manage and ensure authenticity of records. Eze Archive, powered by Global Relay, stores all emails, IMs, and social media messages to provide funds with a SEC-compliant solution that securely and efficiently archives all fund communications.
