Manage Crypto With Confidence: Webinar Series

In just a few short years, the cryptocurrency market has exploded from a niche asset class to a multi-trillion-dollar market, and clients are increasingly demanding ways to take part. The opportunities for both investors and institutions are substantial, but a nascent and disparate infrastructure, combined with the decentralized nature of crypto assets, presents risks as well.

Crypto and illicit finance. Do you know your customer?

It has never been more important to understand who your customers are and to have processes in place to prevent money laundering and illicit finance. Digital assets and cryptocurrencies have a tremendous potential to be abused to evade sanctions and finance illegal activity. As sanctions regimes have rolled out across the globe to penalize Russia for its actions in Ukraine, the need for emerging digital asset firms to have a robust KYC/AML infrastructure has never been greater.

In this webinar, subject matter experts from S&P Global Market Intelligence will discuss the different ways that firms transacting in digital assets are trying to meet these challenges and prevent their platforms from being abused by criminals and rouge actors.
