UBO 2.0 – Data and tech for the future of beneficial ownership

Presented by

Neil Isherwood - Compliance Expert & Strategy Leader, Dun & Bradstreet

About this talk

Determining the ultimate beneficial owners (UBO) of individuals and companies your firm does business with has traditionally been complex, but it’s important to ensure you aren’t partnering with sanctioned individuals, terrorist groups, or money launderers. Finding out who is behind every company in your network requires complex data, often located in a myriad of sources – and information often differs slightly between those sources. Furthermore, there have recently been privacy concerns raised around the transparency of beneficial owners on public registers. So how can you increase efficiency, accuracy and ensure you have a clean and accurate view of the truth? Join Neil Isherwood to discover how data and new technologies can support you. You will learn: • How the battle for transparency vs privacy in beneficial ownership is playing out • Why understanding ownership is no longer enough – the need to check control too • How moving to a people-centric approach can avoid duplication and capture aggregated ownership • How to standardise and contextualise your approach while clustering people based on attributes and their networks
