Financial crime regulation is rapidly changing in the EU. The 5th Anti-Money Laundering Directive, which comes into effect in early 2020, establishes that there is a significant money laundering and terrorism financing risk associated with virtual currencies and assets, mainly due to the anonymity surrounding the sources and uses of the funds.
The adoption of virtual assets has led to expanded risks and, as service providers and financial institutions make haste to assess and mitigate these risks, it is crucial to ensure compliance with an ever-evolving regulatory landscape.
