The next virtual training workshop on FinTech AML Compliance, delivered jointly by the Basel Institute and law firm MME, will take place on 27–28 October.

It's aimed at FinTech / RegTech managers, policy makers and compliance professionals who want to upgrade their knowledge and skills in anti-money laundering compliance in the world of blockchain and cryptocurrencies. 

Join the Basel Institute's Federico Paesano and MME's Chris Gschwend for two days of online interactive classes, case studies and live demos.

Cryptocurrency regulations are developing fast. Across the world, authorities are reacting to the emerging threat posed by criminals using new payment methods to conceal and launder the proceeds of their crimes.

However, as the application of anti-money laundering/combating the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) due diligence requirements becomes stricter and more entities implement preventative measures, criminals are constantly looking elsewhere for potential havens for their illicit activities.

The Basel Institute's cryptocurrency expert, Federico Paesano, delivered a successful open training course on blockchain, cryptocurrencies and AML/CFT this week in collaboration with Zurich-based MME and its Senior Compliance Advisor, Chris Gschwend.

The two-day course, FinTech AML Compliance Training, covered the essentials of blockchain and how to adapt AML/CFT processes to the FinTech industry.
