ACCPA is based in Los Angeles, California, U.S.A. and was founded in 2015 with the aim to reduce the compliance cost for banks and financial institutions in emerging economies. Banks and financial institutions in emerging economies do not have the same revenue stream and operational budget as their counterparts in developed economies, yet they are compelled to pay the same amount of money for compliance software and services. ACCPA believes that banks and financial institutions in emerging economies should not have to pay the same amount of money as those in developed economies for compliance software and services. ACCPA strives to reduce compliance cost for banks and financial institutions in the areas of advisory, training, PEP/KYC screening, and professional certification. It is our belief that banks and financial institutions in emerging economies can reduce their compliance cost without compromising quality.
Our core values and beliefs
Cost: We believe that vendors that supply banks and financial institutions in emerging economies should do their best to reduce cost. Banks and financial institutions in emerging economies face uncertain challenges as they serve their customers whose income levels are not the same as customers in developed economies. It is the responsibility and duty of vendors and supplies to find ways to reduce operational cost for banks and financial institutions in emerging economies. Rising cost is one of the major challenges for banks and financial institutions in emerging economies. As such, any vendor or supply that works with them should do what is necessary to keep cost down.
Quality: We believe that cost can be reduced without compromising quality. The fact that banks and financial institutions in emerging economies need cost reduction does not mean they deserve substandard products and services. We believe it is possible to provide low-cost products and services to banks and financial institutions in emerging economies without sacrificing quality. Quality shouldn't mean high cost. We can deliver high-quality products at a low-cost by nurturing and fostering long-term relationships. Clients are willing to spend more with vendors they can trust and rely on. We believe that it is the nature of the relationship that determines the revenue margin for the vendor, not the cost of the products and services per se. We believe that the vendor will benefit more when the foster a long-term relationship with their clients.
Integrity: Treating clients with fairness is not an absolute necessity but also good business practice. A vendor will lose clients once clients feel they have been treated unfairly.
