Chipper Cash enhances compliance and financial crime prevention skills with ICA qualifications

The International Compliance Association (ICA), the leading professional body for the global regulatory and financial crime compliance community, has won a contract with Chipper Cash, a cross-border, peer-to-peer payment service, to provide training to over 60 employees. 

Chipper Cash went live in October 2018, joining a growing field of fintech start-ups aiming to scale digital finance applications across Africa’s billion-plus population. The app is available in seven countries in Africa as well as the UK and US and processes 80,000 transactions every day. 

A wide range of employees including operational staff, KYC Analysts and Financial Crime Managers will undertake ICA qualifications at different levels as part of Chipper Cash’s enhanced risk management approach. 

Commenting on the training, Samantha Wood, Global Head of Financial Crime and DMLRO at Chipper Cash said, “Chipper wanted a training provider that was globally recognised to be the best in its field. We also wanted to offer our employers courses that could easily fit around their busy schedules. ICA was top of our list; the courses have exceeded our expectations and we are looking forward to working with ICA for many years to come!” 

Dan Glover, ICA Client Relationship Executive, added “We’re delighted to be working with Chipper Cash to enhance the skills of their teams. ICA qualifications are the global industry-standard of excellence, going beyond knowledge delivery to affect behavioural change. I’m looking forward to celebrating the success of their learners as they pass the courses and welcoming them into the ICA community of life-long learning as members.”
