20210322 Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and Financial Crime Risk
This new course is here.
Superficially, the financial crime risk of non-fungible tokens is straightforward and that is how the subject is often presented. It’s said to be about money laundering and terrorist financing risk in an unregulated market in which vast amounts of money are paid, in fiat or crypto-currency, for something intangible.
And there is nothing wrong in that description.
But it is superficial; it is incomplete. It needs more. A lot more.
Here's more. A lot more.
In reality, there is nothing new – indeed, the basics are decades old. Yet this course does something new: it explains that history and sets the current trend in context.
Also, there is a significant amount to add. This course does that, too.
On completion of a short examination, you collect a certificate, CPD hours (where recognised) and points towards the Certificate in Financial Crime Risk and Compliance.
Even more importantly, you gain a level of understanding that you will not read in the mass of reports and articles that focus on the money and gain a perspective that will greatly aid you in improving your risk based assessments of those you deal with and their transactions – and even of certain over-the-horizon product development for a wide range of financial services businesses and those advising on such developments.
