Legal Director Syed Rahman tells Thomson Reuters about the changes to the cryptoasset landscape caused by the Financial Conduct Authority

Author: Syedur Rahman  27 August 2020

The Financial Conduct Authority’s (FCA) plan to extend its annual financial crime reporting obligations to more firms and business sectors is expected to improve anti-money laundering practices in the financial sector. Yet it could prompt major changes in the working methods of those involved with cryptoassets.

The requirement for cryptoasset companies conducting business in the UK to be registered with the FCA by 10 January 2021 will lead to the FCA having more data while placing greater obligations on the firms and, in particular, on their compliance officers.

Rahman Ravelli’s Syed Rahman emphasised this to Thomson Reuters Regulatory Intelligence. His views were used in an article that can be read here. (Subscription required)
