Thumb original understanding beneficial ownership structures ebook us cco

Scandals such as the Panama Papers, Unaoil, and VimpelCom not only highlight the absolute need for robust customer due diligence (CDD), but have spurred the regulatory momentum for enhanced ownership disclosure and transparency.

This guide will help you better understand beneficial ownership legal structures and their complexities. It will also demonstrate how data and analytics can help improve the speed and accuracy of UBO identification, in addition to offering wider organizational benefits from enhanced knowledge management to resource redeployment.
