Provenance Compliance Founders

Provenance brings together six cofounders with in-depth expertise in digital assets and/or compliance, with a multidisciplinary and diverse team. Each of the cofounders has unique insights and knowledge to contribute, and the reason we came together was that we could not find a good compliance solution for our clients. As virtual assets and blockchain become increasingly adopted and regulated, institutional investors, funds, banks and other entities need reliable support for their AML and other compliance obligations. We are building that, using our experience from working with blockchain projects for the last several years, but also an in-depth knowledge of capital markets and investment funds from a legal, compliance and regulatory, and corporate governance perspective, including security, audit/valuation and tax aspects.
