Later this month, the Monegasque Training Institute for Judicial Professions will host two days of conferences on the issues of crypto assets as well as how overseas approaches could help the Principality better understand and prevent money laundering within its own borders.  

Monaco has stepped up efforts this year to ensure the country conforms with international standards in the fight against money laundering after a report by MONEYVAL in January 2023 found that there were areas in which the Principality could improve.  

Spurred on to make the changes and increase public and professional awareness on the issue, a range of different events have been organised in recent months, such as the upcoming two days of conferences organised by the Monegasque Training Institute for Judicial Professions (IMFPJ).  

On 9th November, the IMFPJ will host an event specifically designed for magistrates, clerks, investigators and members of the Monegasque Agency Financial Security (AMSF). Then, on 10th November, a half-day training session fully open to the public will consider “international issues in the fight against money laundering”.  


Yves Strickler, Scientific Director of the IMFPJ and a professor at the University of Côte d’Azur, will head up the event, which will run from 9am to 12pm in the auditorium of the Lycée Rainier III.  

The topics on the programme include: crypto assets by Marina Teller, Professor at the University of Côte d’Azur, and Vincent de Bonnafos, a legal advisor at DL Corporate & Regulatory; and the “American approach to the fight against money laundering”, with insight from the three American magistrates. 

Registrations are open until 8th November at 6.30pm. Requests can be sent by e-mail to
