Peel back the layers of elaborate ownership structures

Our approach goes beyond the identification of an entity’s immediate shareholders and known ultimate beneficial ownership (UBO). Uncovering and interpreting elaborate ownership structures is our bread and butter. 

With growing regulatory scrutiny and fragmented data held in official registries, organisations and compliance teams need a risk-based approach to assess their relationships with third parties. As one of the world’s leading due diligence providers, Control Risks has extensive experience identifying UBOs through public records, on-the-ground research and discreet enquiries. 

VANTAGE Ownership goes even further by focusing in on whether an entity’s ownership structure is unorthodox or unduly complex, or whether there is an offshore element or any indication that registered owners are proxies for hidden beneficiaries.
