MiCA is coming …
The European ‘Markets in crypto-assets regulation’ (MiCA) is currently in its final phase of negotiation. MiCA is widely regarded as a milestone in regulating crypto markets, not only within the EU but globally: it is the first comprehensive regime for crypto-assets enacted in any major financial market and has the potential to inspire regulation in other parts of the world, very much as GDPR did.
MiCA will soon become a core component of the EU financial regulation and practitioners and supervisors alike will need to be familiar with the requirements for crypto-asset products and related services. Skilful navigation of its scope, intersection with other laws such ad MiFID and the EMD, and obligations for incumbent financial institutions and new entrants will be key.
… understand the MiCA framework and secure compliance by design
The core components of MiCA relating to both issuance of crypto-assets and crypto-asset services show some significant parallels with other parts of the regulatory rule book. However, they differ in many respects. For you, it is vital to grasp the relevant concepts and to be able to translate them into usable knowledge whether in-house, as an external advisor, or in a supervisory role. Learn too about eligibility for and application of the flagship DLT Pilot Regime for securities markets infrastructure.
This executive short course is conceived and taught by leading academics and policy makers in this field. Get their first hand insights, combined with coveted knowledge shared by industry insiders and specialists from regulatory and supervisory authorities.
