In a report on May 1, 2024, the UK Treasury concluded from data provided by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) that crypto asset companies were among the top four types of companies highly vulnerable to financial crime, particularly for money laundering cases between 2022 and 2023.

The report shows that between 2022 and 2023, there will be a total of 52.8 full-time specialist employees overseeing Anti-Money Laundering cases, with almost a third focused specifically on the oversight of crypto companies.

Over the period 2022 to 2023, the FCA's financial crime specialists carried out a total of 231 reviews of financial companies operating in the UK as well as an additional 375 cases relating to financial crime and sanctions.
