The BVI ACO aims to foster a culture of compliance in the jurisdiction. It is the Association's ultimate goal to contribute to the reputation of the British Virgin Islands as a highly attractive and reputable international financial centre.
All Compliance Officers and those employed within compliance departments of BVI regulated entities are strongly encouraged to join the Association. Being a member of the BVI ACO allows you and your employer to benefit from the strength of the Association, as a unified body, with respect to addressing compliance related issues and liaising with the British Virgin Islands Financial Services Commission as well as with other local and international bodies. Other benefits include obtaining discounts on training provided locally and with some international organizations, including attendance at international conferences.
