XCP Bank’s Operations Raise Eyebrows: A Banking Institution or a Facade?

1 min read

In recent times, the financial sector has been abuzz with discussions about the operations of XCP Bank, a relatively new player in the banking industry. Established in 2022, XCP Bank, also known as Xirik Commercial & Private Bank, has positioned itself as a provider of funding for humanitarian, governmental, and corporate projects. However, a series of allegations and reports have raised questions about the bank’s business practices and its very nature as a banking institution.

Allegations of Irregularities

The bank, which boasts a team of experienced international business people and banking professionals, has come under fire for alleged irregularities in its operations¹. Critics argue that the bank’s lack of transparency and the absence of a clear regulatory framework governing its activities have created an environment ripe for suspicion. There have been no direct accusations or evidence of wrongdoing by XCP Bank in the public domain, but the lack of detailed information about its operations has led to speculation and unease among industry observers.

Is XCP Bank Truly a Bank?

The core question that arises is whether XCP Bank can be classified as a bank in the traditional sense. Typically, a bank is an institution licensed to receive deposits and make loans. It is also authorized to provide financial services such as wealth management, currency exchange, and safe deposit boxes. XCP Bank’s focus on project finance and loans, along with payment and FX services, aligns with some of these functions³. However, the absence of information about deposit-taking or other conventional banking services has led to doubts about its classification as a bank.

The Road Ahead

As the debate continues, it is clear that more information is needed to fully understand XCP Bank’s business model and operations. The financial community and potential clients will be looking for greater clarity and assurance that the bank operates within the bounds of financial regulations and industry standards. Until then, the questions surrounding XCP Bank’s legitimacy and operations will remain a topic of intense discussion and scrutiny.

For now, XCP Bank remains a subject of curiosity in the financial world, with many awaiting further developments that could shed light on its practices and the validity of the concerns raised.
