In June of 2019 we presented the Global Regulation of Digital Asset Funds, in partnership with Harneys, a leading Cayman law firm, with which we have worked extensively in structuring global digital asset funds. Our June symposium featured a panel of leading authorities on various aspects of global digital asset regulation, including securities law, taxation, and anti-money-laundering compliance.
As discussed in the video excerpts, global regulators have prioritized enforcement of securities law violations by various crypto-asset market participants, including an increasing number of digital asset fund managers. In recent months, global regulators throughout the world have broadly expanded their enforcement priorities to encompass violations of by various market participants, and have increasingly targeted non-compliant digital asset funds. Managers should exercise commensurate caution and discipline when raising capital and communicating with investors and should lean heavily on the expertise of experienced legal counsel during pre-launch communications with prospective investors, post-launch capital raising, and in ongoing communication with investors.
