Live Webinar: What Financial Institutions Need to Know About Cryptocurrency

Date: Wednesday, September 18, 2019, 11 am -12 pm EST


Public blockchains – and the cryptocurrencies running on them – are here to stay. Capital flows through cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin or Ethereum, continue to increase with some analysts forecasting that Bitcoin will soon surpass a $1T USD market cap. Meanwhile, the People’s Bank of China claims their state-backed “crypto RMB” will be “quite similar to” Facebook’s Libra Project, which is yet another project to spark global discussion. How do financial institutions manage risk related to digital assets and cryptocurrencies? 

In this webinar, Dan Peak, Board Advisor at CaseWare RCM and former CEO for World-Check (now Refinitiv) and Greg Pinn,  Head of Product Strategy at iComply Investor Services and former Head of Product at Thomson Reuters World-Check will discuss systematic processes that every financial institution should go through when evaluating the risks associated with cryptocurrencies and effective mitigation strategies.
