SOC 1 Type II Audit of Transfer Agent Processes
Transfer Agent services now require multiple competencies and the need to assume a much broader role in supporting multiple functions within risk and portfolio management.
Phoenix American transfer agent clients rely on our systems to process and store sensitive data. That is why we pay special attention to security, reliability, and scalability in our transfer agent solutions.
This means creating and maintaining a complete set of security procedures and processes to protect and secure our clients’ transfer agent data. Phoenix American regularly completes the SSAE 18/ Service Organization Control 1 (SOC 1), Type II audit as part of our mission to provide the highest quality transfer agent services for our clients.
SOC 1, Type II is an annual certification audit conducted by an independent auditor of all transfer agent cesses that extensively assess our procedures, private cloud hosting, application development and data security.
