Crypto Compliance is emerging as a thriving field in the financial sector, witnessing significant demand for further education. This surge is driven by the growing trend of financial institutions offering crypto assets to their clients or receiving fiat proceeds from crypto investments. The University of Zurich is excellently positioned in both research and teaching to address this demand. Therefore, the UZH Blockchain Center and the Institute of Computer Science are launching a Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) in Crypto Compliance in the Autumn semester of 2024. Throughout 12 sessions of the course and a final thesis, participants will acquire the knowledge and practical skills needed to comprehend and effectively apply Crypto Compliance principles in their professional endeavours. The CAS is open to individuals with relevant professional backgrounds and a university degree.

Crypto assets have become a newly emerging asset class in the financial world. In addition to Bitcoin, there are many other crypto assets nowadays that are widely in use. Numerous banks already have direct or indirect exposure to crypto assets. The reasons for banks offering this emerging asset class are diverse, from meeting customer demand and diversifying investment opportunities to embracing technological innovation. The introduction of new technology also raises new challenges and questions to answer. This is why the UZH Blockchain Center is leading the way, looking into how to address the challenges and answer the questions arising from banks’ exposure to crypto assets.
