Virtual assets and FATF guidelines – a risk-based approach for financial institutions

Overview

DIFC Academy in partnership with K2 Integrity would like to invite everyone to a webinar on September 28, 2021 entitled, “Virtual assets and FATF guidelines – a risk-based approach for financial institutions”.

Given the popularity of virtual assets and cryptocurrencies in the UAE and globally, regulators and organization such as the FATF have begun to provide further guidance recently to virtual asset providers (VASPs) and other financial institutions to better understand their AML/CFT and compliance obligations and risks.  The panel, consisting of leading experts in virtual assets and cryptocurrencies, and global standards and regulatory obligations will discuss:

·        the challenges and opportunities these products present,

·        how global standards would apply to these assets, and

·        impact on the industry coming out of the new FATF typologies and guidance.
