Trouble in Paradise

Cracking down on corporate secrecy

Information about corporate structures and beneficial ownership is increasingly required by regulators, and collected and published by national and state registries.

The reason these facts are not included in due diligence and risk assessment is often not that records do not exist, but the poor productivity and inefficiency of due diligence fails to locate this information and include it in risk assessments.

In this Q&A webinar, Henry Williams (Head of Investigations, Themis) interviews investigative journalist and award-winning author of ‘Moneyland’, Oliver Bullough, who gives his insight and discusses the financial crime risks that come with corporate secrecy and hidden beneficial ownership.
