InScope secures $4.3m to revolutionise financial reporting and auditing

Published

on

 

InScope, a newly launched FinTech company, has successfully raised $4.3 million to expand its innovative financial reporting and auditing platform.

According to PYMNTS, the funding round included significant contributions from prominent investors such as Lightspeed and Better Tomorrow Ventures.

InScope is focused on transforming the traditional processes of financial reporting and auditing for private companies. The company leverages advanced technologies, including generative AI and large language models, to automate and streamline the compilation of financial statements—tasks that have historically been prone to errors and required extensive manual effort.

The new capital will be used to enhance InScope’s platform capabilities. The company aims to shift accountants’ focus from laborious manual tasks to more strategic initiatives, thereby empowering finance professionals with tools to complete reporting and auditing tasks quickly and efficiently.

InScope’s system compiles data from a company’s core systems, such as ERP, along with publicly available information, and transforms these inputs into GAAP-compliant financial and audit documents.

InScope CEO and co-founder Mary Antony stated, “Our technology dramatically reduces the time and effort required for financial reporting and auditing, eliminating the need for outdated manual processes.” Her co-founder and COO, Kelsey Gootnick, also emphasized the transformative potential of InScope, which they conceived out of their own frustrations with existing financial processes.

The company has already begun collaborating with a select group of companies to refine and enhance their financial reporting capabilities. JC Bahr-de Stefano, a venture capital investor at Better Tomorrow Ventures, commented on this partnership: “InScope is already working with a handful of companies to help streamline their financial reporting needs and enable accountants to complete their reporting tasks in minutes instead of months.”

New partnership between BIS and MAS targets climate risks in finance

Published

on

 

The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) and the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) have recently collaborated on an innovative initiative.

The BIS, an institution dedicated to fostering international monetary and financial cooperation, and the MAS, Singapore’s central bank responsible for monetary policy, financial regulation, and supervision, have teamed up to tackle a pressing global challenge.

Their partnership aims to develop a blueprint for a climate risk platform designed to integrate regulatory and climate data. This platform will enable financial authorities worldwide to better identify, monitor, and manage climate-related risks within the financial system.

The BIS, through its Innovation Hub Centre in Singapore, is addressing financial stability concerns posed by climate change. The MAS adds its regulatory expertise and focus on sustainable finance to the effort. Both institutions recognize the complex challenges posed by climate change, including significant data gaps and the difficulty of assessing associated risks.

Project Viridis, led by the BIS Innovation Hub, outlines the essential features and metrics of the proposed climate risk platform. This platform is designed to provide comprehensive data on financed emissions, exposure to physical risks, and forward-looking assessments under various climate scenarios. As the impact of climate change on global financial markets escalates, adaptive and innovative responses are necessary.

The partnership also leverages advanced technologies such as natural language processing to extract and analyze climate-related data from corporate disclosures. This enables a deeper understanding of financial institutions’ climate-related risks and identifies potential areas requiring more intensive risk assessment.

Maha El Dimachki, head of the BIS Innovation Hub Singapore Centre, stated, “Project Viridis demonstrates how regulatory data can be integrated with climate data, extracted from corporate disclosure documents using natural language processing techniques. This provides authorities with insights into climate-related financial risks, helping them form an initial view of financial institutions’ risk exposures and identify areas that may require deeper risk assessment.”
