Melbourne, Australia. King & Wood Mallesons (KWM), today announced their partnership in Australia with 6clicks both as their selected governance, risk, compliance (GRC) vendor, as well as their preferred risk and compliance platform for clients.
The new partnership will see KWM leverage 6clicks' unique Hub & Spoke™ architecture for their internal management of risks, regulatory compliance, and cyber security requirements for the firm in Australia. In addition, KWM will also be utilizing 6clicks' unique architecture model to digitize the delivery of risk and compliance services across their client base and for clients' ongoing use. KWM related client services offerings include Third Party Risk Management, Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) and Consumer Data Rights (CDR) management.
Peter Stockdale, Partner & Global Head of Risk, said, "KWM recognizes that we are operating in an increasingly complex and regulatory diverse business environment in Australia, with new risks and emerging threats. As such, we require a dynamic, agile, and efficient GRC solution capable of providing oversight across multiple business lines through aggregate risk management, curated through a single pane of glass in a streamlined manner with advanced reporting and analytics. 6clicks was a clear choice for us in that regard, both in terms of agility, scalability, and cutting-edge technology."
According to, Michelle Mahoney, Executive Director for Innovation at KWM, "As a firm, we are committed to driving growth and powering innovation through adoption of technology to create the best possible outcomes for our clients. We value a "digital first" approach to client service and partnering with 6clicks has helped us accelerate our digital transformation program."
Anthony Stevens, CEO and co-founder of 6clicks, high out that firms today have increasing exposures to multi-jurisdictional regulatory requirements, greater risks and new cyber threats. To manage GRC programs effectively, it is critical for businesses to streamline their risk and compliance processes by proactively promoting best practise across their local hubs while being able to report dynamically upstream.
"At 6clicks, we help our partner firms and clients achieve this through our unique Hub & Spoke™ model, powered by curated content, solution capability and artificial intelligence." said Stevens.
6clicks has quickly emerged as a leading, global platform for risk and compliance needs, recently named one of Australia's 100 Most Innovative Companies by The Australian, and as one of Melbourne's Top 8 Tech Stars by the Herald Sun.
Ultimately, this distribution and technology partnership provides businesses with greater ability to access the 6clicks platform and the benefits of the unique 6clicks Hub&Spoke™ architecture (explainer here) - driving superior ease of use, faster deployment options and better risk and compliance outcomes.
