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 provides an introduction to 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 frame work can be established to manage and mitigate the risks, whilst allowing firms to benefit commercially from this innovation.
