Beneficial Ownership: International Approaches

Paul McDermott

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In the previous edition of AML we discussed difficulties in determining the ultimate beneficial owner (UBO) of proprietary companies in Australia. In this month’s article, Dr McDermott looks at two key jurisdictions which influence future trends in AML; namely, the US and UK. You will see from the analysis below that problems faced by Australian institutions and the lack of transparency of UBOs are yet to be tackled in a successful way by these jurisdictions.
