Identifying beneficial ownership and complex corporate structures is a complex process which all institutions must address to remain compliant with regulations and manage the risk of dealing with potential financial criminals and sanctioned entities.

In a world of increasing regulatory requirements and increasing globalization of relationships, and as governments around the world react to the growing global controversy surrounding financial transparency from incidents such as the recent Panama Papers compromise, the question is, what can financial institutions do to stay ahead?
