FCC is the abbreviation of Financial Crime Compliance. There are more and more banks establishing FCC Department across the globe. To highlight the business focus of the company, FCCA decided to use it as the company name.


Nowadays, as people create bank accounts, banks need to put Know Your Customer (KYC) procedures in place to learn customer background, avoid providing services to high risk customers, e.g. identify whether the customer is a Politically Exposed Person (PEP) or sanction designation.


In the recent Russia-Ukarine War, the sanction list is constantly updating. Financial institutions are required to closely monitor the latest situation to avoid falling into traps. With FCCA's solution, bank will be able to cross-check customers with database. Potential high risk customers will be filtered with alert scoring, which allows bank for further follow up.
