BENEFICIAL OWNERSHIP: DO YOU REALLY KNOW WHO IS IN CONTROL?

Refinitiv (which used to be Thomson Reuters, World-Check etc) has published a paper on beneficial ownership.  It looks at the various regulatory methods of control, information gathering and enforcement (if any) in several countries, and looks at the concept of central registers.  An appendix provides a useful comparison of the definition of “beneficial owner” in the US, EU, Hong Kong and Singapore.
