The Ultimate CDD Challenge: Finding the Beneficial Owner

Date:  Thursday, June 28, 2018
Time:  12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EST | 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM GMT

As of May 11, 2018, FinCEN’s CDD Final Rule requires that many financial institutions collect and verify the personal information of the real people (also known as beneficial owners) who own, control, and profit from companies when those companies open accounts. Financial institutions have the challenging task to identify and verify the identity of any individual who owns 25 % or more of a legal entity, and an individual who controls the legal entity. Beneficial ownership information can be obscured through the use of shell companies, complex ownership and control structures, bearer shares, use of legal persons as directors, and other creative ways. This practical course taught by a seasoned compliance practitioner covers how to go about finding the beneficial owner and document your findings to meet these new regulatory expectations.
