Crypto compliance: The next AML risk frontier
Time: Available on demand (pre-recorded)
For legal professionals already tasked with keeping on top of AML and Source of Funds/Wealth regulations, cryptoassets are yet another risk factor to be managed.
In April this year, the government announced steps to make Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies valid forms of payment in the UK. But the risk of fraud remains high in this market, with criminals laundering £6.4bn of cryptocurrency in 2021 worldwide (an annual increase of 30%).
Increasing levels of crypto ownership make it imperative for modern firms to have clear processes in place to stay compliant. In this on-demand session, our panel of crypto and regulatory experts will offer their best practice advice on how to work with cryptoassets with confidence.
