A Regulatory Understanding of Virtual Asset Types and their Risks
December 7, 2019
In early 2019, FATF released their guidance for a risk-based approach to Virtual Assets (VAs) and Virtual Asset Service Providers (VASPs). While the guidance, provided general information on how to understand and mitigate money laundering and trade financing risks, it did not provide specific information about how to address specific risks associated with the various types of virtual assets.
As a follow-up to his popular webinar on "What FIs need to know about Cryptos", Greg Pinn, AML Consultant and Virtual Asset Expert, will detail each type of virtual asset in the market, their relative traffic volume, and regulatory issues related to each one. Participants will also learn key features of different virtual asset types and understand how to properly risk profile each virtual asset type for their institution.
