Event Details

In October 2018, the FATF adopted changes to its Recommendations to explicitly include financial activities involving digital assets. The amended FATF Recommendation 15 requires that virtual asset services providers be regulated for anti-money laundering purposes, and subject to effective systems for monitoring or supervision. This webinar discusses how Swiss legislation is implementing these requirements.
