Lansare Corporation is pleased to announce the launch of its on-demand platform which supports the post-sale identification of unsuitable variable annuity transactions.

Lansare's VA Compliance Platform enables surveillance analysts at Broker-Dealers, carriers, and other distributors of variable annuities to proactively monitor their entire book of business for inappropriate sales activity.

"We provide an easy to use platform that simplifies post-sale compliance by highlighting trends and patterns that won't appear in any single sales transaction, yet expose the organization to potential fines and regulatory compliance problems associated with unsuitable VA transactions", states Paul Nowak, President of Lansare. "Our platform monitors potential problem areas - such as unsuitable exchanges and cookie-cutter sales practices - and brings these issues to the attention of analysts."

The penalties related to inadequate post-sale compliance and surveillance practices can be significant. Earlier this month, FINRA, The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, imposed a $1.75 million fine on Fifth Third Securities, Inc of Cincinnati OH for engaging in a series of what it termed "unsuitable" transactions involving variable annuities.

With built-in query, search, alerting and monitoring tools, the Lansare VA Compliance Platform provides analysts with the ability to conduct extensive research across the entire book of business, and to root out potentially unsuitable sales practices before they escalate into problems.
