In this episode, Brenton is joined by Ralf Kaiser, CEO of Integrated Compliance Solutions – helping banks to manage risk around Cannabis, Hemp and CBD transactions.
A very timely interview, with New Zealand about to hear the results of the cannabis referendum; a referendum that gave the public the opportunity to vote on whether the recreational use of cannabis should be legal, based on the proposed Cannabis Legalisation and Control Bill.
With a potential new $1.5billion dollar market about to open up if the “yes” vote wins, this is a must listen for those interested in being the forefront of this exciting new industry.
Ralf dispels the myth that banks cannot provide banking services to the marijuana industry because it is a violation of the Bank Secrecy Act and Anti-Money Laundering Statutes. As CEO of ICS, Ralf is an industry leader in compliance software and innovative, cost-effective merchant payment solutions for banks, cannabis, CBD and hemp companies.
Join Brenton and Ralf as they explore the future global cannabis market and what this could mean for New Zealand. Find out the lessons that NZ can learn from the US, and how early investors can take action. The NZ referendum results will be live on Friday 6th November 2020, with preliminary results due today (30th October 2020).
