Everything AML Compliance Teams Need to Know About Crypto
Cryptocurrencies have gone from obscure to mainstream over the course of the decade. Banks can no longer ignore the risks—or forfeit the rewards—of the blockchain. A December 2020 survey by Cornerstone Advisors found that 15 percent of US consumers own cryptocurrency and that of those, 60 percent would use their bank to make such investments.
At the same time, regulators are stepping up pressure on financial institutions to identify and report any suspicious activity related to the exploitation of crypto currencies for money laundering, sanctions evasion, and other illicit financing purposes.
