Embracing a Culture of Risk Vigilance

As we approach the start of football season, a sports idiom seems fitting. As the saying goes, the best defense is a good offense. Simple management of risk just isn’t good enough anymore. Transactions are faster, criminals are smarter and the stakes are higher. As ACBB continues its commitment to support and serve community banking, we made a strategic decision to not simply comply, but to embrace a proactive, enterprise-wide approach to risk. We believe this presents an opportunity for ACBB to get ahead of issues that will impact our clients’ ability to do business and create a competitive advantage. Our strategy stems from a combination of regulatory feedback, insights from clients and the recognition that there is no such thing as business-as-usual anymore.

Investing in a Culture of Innovation

Innovation often leads to disruption. History provides numerous examples of industry transformations including transportation, telecommunications and retail. The financial sector is constantly facing disruption from technology, changing customer behaviors and competitors from other channels, all of this compounded by complex regulatory burdens.

2019 is gearing up to be another bellwether year for BITS. Because of some of our expanded partnerships, we expect our growth rate to gain tremendous steam in the next couple years.
