STATEMENTS FROM ISLE OF MAN, JERSEY AND GUERNSEY ON BENEFICIAL OWNERSHIP REGISTERS AND MEETING WITH UK PARLIAMENTARIANS

On 19 June, 2 news releases from the Isle of Man confirmed reports that the 3 jurisdictions are to implement a 3-stage process to work towards making their beneficial ownership registers open to the public.  One also mentioned a meeting with UK parliamentarians, and Prime Minister Theresa May saying that she was very pleased to see the announcement from Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man and indeed that the UK would continue to work with the Overseas Territories to ensure that they do follow those standards and open those books, so that people can see who is actually owning those companies.
