Digital Asset Review

Kroll possesses a wealth of experience in conducting compliance reviews and due diligence related to financial crimes for numerous digital assets and issuers. This involves assessing risks related to sanctions evasions, anti-money laundering (AML) and financial crimes for centralized exchanges and custodians.

Our track record includes evaluating over 20 of the leading 50 assets, which collectively represent nearly $150 billion in market capitalization, offering insight into all major layer 1 networks.

The distinct attributes of cryptocurrencies, blockchain technology and decentralized finance pose unique challenges that traditional financial crime experts might not always be prepared to address.

Issuers and teams often operate across numerous jurisdictions, each with its own language and expertise requirements, further contributing to the complexity of the situation. With a global presence, Kroll has experts around the world who possess linguistic, jurisdictional and on-the-ground intelligence. We have consistently proven our ability to establish, train and optimize teams to meet client demands whether the market is bullish or experiencing crypto downturns.

Our suite of solutions for cryptocurrency compliance, risk assessment and investigations are designed to progressively address various business needs.
