Webinar on Beneficial Ownership Transparency of Legal Persons

This webinar focused on FATF's recent revision to Recommendation 24 on beneficial ownership of legal persons, which aims to help stop criminals from hiding their illicit activities and dirty money behind secret company structures.  

The webinar brought together a panel of experts with a global and domestic focus on enhancing beneficial ownership transparency who helped shape the FATF work in this area. The discussions focused on the following topics:

  • New FATF obligations on beneficial ownership (BO) transparency - objectives and rationale;
  • National experiences, challenges, and lessons-learnt in conducting collecting BO information and developing appropriate mitigation strategies; and
  • Role of private sector – what can be done further to enhance adequacy, accuracy and timeliness of BO information

Originally broadcast on 1 September, the webinar is now available to watch or listen to.
