This June the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) detailed guidance on the regulation of virtual assets, including cryptocurrencies. The global standard-setter has laid down a marker for all stakeholders involved in the crypto space: lapses in AML compliance won’t be tolerated any longer, and regulators won’t allow crypto to be a safe haven for criminals.

Join Elliptic’s Head of Community, David Carlisle, for a look at the FATF’s new guidance and its impact on AML crypto compliance.

The session will examine the implications not only for crypto compliance officers, but those in the banking sector who need to understand its impact as well. In this session we’ll help you to understand:

  • Why the FATF is now approaching crypto with growing urgency, and why ensuring transparency of crypto transactions is central to its efforts
  • Why tough enforcement of AML regulation in the crypto space is imminent, and the likely impact on development in the US, Asia, and EMEA regions
  • What the FATF guidance has to say about banks and crypto, and how banks can respond

This webinar is eligible for 1 continuing education credit and/or CFCS credit. A recording of the presentation, slides, and certificate of participation will be available for ACFCS members only.
