Last month I was delighted to join Bill Hauserman as a panellist on Bureau van Dijk's webinar, Beneficial ownership – have you got it right?
Bill and I discussed smarter ways to integrate beneficial ownership information into our viewers' compliance processes, so they could start focusing on higher-level decision-making and spend less time on data discovery, and the webinar is now free to watch on-demand.
During the broadcast we received dozens of open-ended questions from our worldwide audience of compliance professionals. We only had a chance to address a few of them on the day. But we couldn't let the rest go to waste, so I offered to answer some in this guest blog. Bill will tackle some of the others in a follow-up blog.
So, in no particular order – and noting that these are my personal views – here they are. You're welcome to contact me for clarification at email@example.com.
