The UK Treasury recently committed to laying legislation for cryptoasset market abuse this year, subject to parliamentary time. The UK’s Financial Conduct Authority will then implement a market abuse regime, setting higher expectations for the standard of care and supervision that firms provide to consumers.

Helen Boyd, head of capital markets at the FCA, joins OMFIF to discuss key components of the regime and how they differ from existing regulations. This roundtable will explore how the framework will affect the day-to-day operations of UK-based cryptoasset service providers and what steps they should be taking to prepare for these changes.
