Why it is important

In the face of terror attacks, drug trafficking, and other nefarious activities, money laundering is a growing concern that cuts across borders and societies. This leads to the importance of banks and financial institutions taking their UBO (Ultimate Beneficial Ownership) compliance with utmost seriousness. Banks need to determine and assess the ownership structure of their client businesses consisting of all corporate relationships and people associated with the ownership of the business.

Financial institutions should identify and verify who their customers are and where their funding originates, with the goal of preventing money laundering or terrorist financing.

What needs to be improved

Challenges include:

  • Fragmented and inconsistent data in registers around the globe
  • A large number of entities to be verified, increased by legal corporate structures with multiple layers of ownership
  • A lack of standardized documentation across various countries

How WorkFusion can help

WorkFusion simplifies the identification and validation of a legal entity’s beneficiary ownership by:

  • automating research of external sources such as Dun & Bradstreet, corporate registries, LexisNexis and others
  • compiling a list of flagged articles that need analyst attention and judgement

It enables analysts to determine and assess the ownership and control structure of the bank’s clients at greater speed and efficiency, and ultimately to process larger amounts of deals.
