what is the Regulatory Updates on AML and MiCA course and what are the learning outcomes?
The Regulatory Updates on Anti-Money Laundering and Markets in Crypto Assets course has been developed by SALVUS Funds and serves as a comprehensive guide through the dynamic landscape of crypto assets and the ever-evolving regulatory environment. The course further discusses the essential obligations of CASP regulated entities from a rigorous AML perspective.
At the heart of European financial markets lies the AML regulatory framework, an indispensable cornerstone ensuring the integrity, accountability, and trustworthiness of these markets. This framework is instrumental in establishing mutually beneficial business relationships among market participants. Meanwhile, the MiCA Regulation provides a comprehensive set of guidelines that harmonize the authorization, operation, organization, and governance aspects of crypto assets. It extends its reach to encompass those who act as Crypto Asset Service Providers and issuers of crypto assets, setting uniform standards for this evolving market.
Upon successful completion of this course, learners will attain a profound comprehension of the details within the updated AML regulatory framework. Additionally, they will gain insights into the essential organizational and governance prerequisites for offering crypto assets and be equipped with the critical skills needed to proficiently identify, assess, and effectively manage the associated risks.
The completion of this course counts towards the Continuous Professional Development (CPD) annual requirements of the CySEC Advanced, Basic and AML certifications.
