Ward Smets

As a consultant at Charco & Dique, I help financial institutions understand the laws and regulations that apply to them.

I assist firms in license applications and crypto-registrations. One of my focus areas is prudential regulation, including the CRR, CRD and IFD. I also have experience in various types of CDD processes. This includes my role as (external) compliance officer and compliance advisor.
