Whether you need to identify beneficial ownership in response to increasingly rigorous anti-money laundering rules, or you're checking if a company is "sanctioned by extension" according to OFAC's "50% rule", you can't get far without knowing where a company sits in a wider corporate structure.
Your free resourcesIt's crucial to understand the terminology used in these pursuits. We helped to address this last month by publishing an A-Z guide of corporate ownership and compliance terms.
And this month we're delighted to unveil a complementary resource, our Integrated corporate ownership and related risk poster, pictured here with a stack of guides.
You can download both for free from this corporate ownership resources page, where you can also order printed copies in the post. The poster is A2 in size and sticks to any flat surface using static electricity, so it doesn't need pins or Blu-Tack, and can be easily moved, while the guide will fit in your pocket.
The new poster will help you visualise and contextualise some of the concepts discussed in the guide, concepts that are put into practice by researchers using Orbis ownership explorer, a tool on our Orbis database of 220 million private companies across all countries worldwide.
