Course overview:

The world of Cryptocurrency is evolving rapidly, with a small number of regulated financial services firms already seeking to benefit from this innovation, particularly in the area of payment services.

The take up in the commercial mainstream is only set to grow as knowledge of the subject increases, the technology becomes better understood and potential blind spots around AML and Compliance are identified and addressed.

This course introduces digital currencies, the risks currently associated with them and the steps that firms need to be taking in order to ensure that compliance requirements are fulfilled.

Digital currencies can be introduced as an alternative method of payment, or form of investment. As long as the technology and risks associated with block chain are understood, then a framework can be established to manage and mitigate the risks, whilst allowing firms to benefit commercially from this innovation.

Learning objectives:

  • Build confidence among senior executives and CCOs when dealing with digital assets, (virtual currencies) and digital ledger technology (blockchain).
  • Consider how regulatory guidance should shape the in-house risk and compliance framework, for effective risk management when dealing with digital assets.
  • Understand digital assets as a means of exchange and payment, including facilitating regulated payments.
