Here at ACA, we have created a variety of programs to promote ACA's culture of inclusivity and work hard to ensure that all our employees have an equal opportunity to contribute to ACA and feel that ACA is exactly where they belong.

ACA was founded in 2002 by four former SEC regulators and one former state regulator. The founders saw a need for investment advisers to receive expert guidance on existing and new regulations. Over the years, ACA has grown both organically and by acquisition to expand our GRC business and technology solutions. Our services now include GIPS standards verification, cybersecurity and technology risk, regulatory technology, ESG advisory, AML and financial crimes, financial and regulatory reporting, and Mirabella for establishing EU operations.
