Crypto Assets Compliance & Risk

Les inscriptions sont fermées



From day one Crypto Assets have been considered a major challenge for the existing financial sector. Their very abstract and difficult to understand technology have led to many misunderstandings and
misconceptions. It is fair to say Crypto Assets have shaken and stirred the existing financial system.

A few years down the road, it has become evident that Crypto Assets are here to stay, and mindsets are shifting towards integration and the need for regulation to ensure the stability of the overall financial system.

Through this afternoon of study, we look at the essential aspects of crypto Assets under the prism of compliance, the fight against money laundering but also the creation of a regulated status.

The conference will be closed by a cocktail for the launch of the European Journal of Compliance & Integrity.

Join us and key personalities and references from public and private institutions on the matter. You will hear from regulators, experts, and financial institutions on the need to shift mindsets and how they have tackled the challenge of Crypto Assets to ensure compliance.

This new journal focuses on the topics that compliance actors are confronted with in the exercise of their profession.  The journal is intended to be a reference tool, with a high scientific added value, but this does not prevent the creation of a practice-oriented section.

The journal is intended for the Belgian and Luxembourg market. The Journal covers a wide range of topics such as:
o the fight against corruption
o the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing
o protection of personal data,
o international sanctions and embargoes,
o whistleblowing,
o corporate social responsibility,
o compliance with competition law,
o customer relations,
o the job of compliance officer (ethics, independence), etc.

These subjects have become essential for companies and their advisers and now represent a major economic challenge for private and public players.
