The DiAM® programme was designed to enable you to face what is probably the biggest revolution in the financial sector of this decade, cryptocurrencies and financial assets represented in blockchain.

In recent years there has been a real push to develop types of assets based on blockchain technology such as digital assets or crypto assets. In addition to the cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ether or Solana, the technology enables the development of various types of financial instruments and newly created assets such as stable-coins, central bank digital money (CBDC) or tokenized traditional assets.

After more than a decade of adoption by the investment world, the crypto phenomenon has not remained as a speculative niche within investments, but on the contrary, it has progressively gained volume and market share. It is no surprise that regulation has consistently reached these assets and this technology, albeit in an irregular way depending on the country.

Currently in Europe, the Directive for the Prevention of Money Laundering, AML5, is in force and intense work is being carried out on the draft of the MiCA Regulation (Markets in Crypto Assets), which will be the cornerstone of the regulation for these assets and the entire sector that we call decentralized finance or DeFi.

To a greater or lesser extent, traditional financial entities are beginning to offer or consider products and services related to this sector: intermediation in cryptocurrencies, tokenized vehicles, NFTs, derivatives on crypto assets, etc.

Who is the Digital Assets and MiCA® programme most suitable for?

This programme is aimed at all those professionals in the financial sector who want to acquire the knowledge necessary to understand digital assets, including crypto assets. It describes what the short- and medium-term prospects are for the evolution of their regulation.
This topic cuts across areas affecting:

  • Advisers
  • Salespeople
  • Managers from banking
  • Finance and insurance sectors
  • Preparers of Financial reports
  • Legal and technical specialists working in finance.

Although it is a programme with a clear professional orientation, its construction from basic principles moving on to more advanced elements make it of great interest to individual investors who want to expand their knowledge on this subject and understand how it fits into the world of finance.
