San Jose, CA, November 15, 2016 – NES Financial, a FinTech company with leading fund administration, loan servicing, EB-5 administration, and 1031 tax deferred exchange services, announced today that it has completed the SSAE16 compliance examination.
Formerly known as SAS 70, the SSAE 16 SOC 1 Type II examination is a recognized compliance and controls standard from AICPA used by leading financial services companies and service providers across the financial industry. The examination mandates an in-depth review of key control objectives and procedures throughout the company’s control environment. NES Financial’s SSAE16 examination includes technology, information and data, financial and security processes. Conducted by Moss Adams, one of the leading CPA firms in the country, the examination reviews the design of controls and operating effectiveness of the identified key control areas of NES Financial.
