Alberta-based Crown corporation, ATB Financial, has chosen MetricStream, the independent market leader in Governance, Risk, Compliance (GRC) Apps and Solutions, to provide an integrated GRC solution for operational risk management, internal audit management, regulatory compliance, regulatory change management, internal controls over financial reporting compliance management, and case management. The solution will bring together these processes on a common platform, making them easier to manage and track. It will also streamline workflows, improve collaboration across teams, and optimize reporting and visibility.

Owned by the Province of Alberta, ATB Financial is the largest Alberta-based financial institution with assets of $46.8 billion. Through a network of over 5,000 team members, ATB Financial serves more than 730,000 customers in 244 communities.
