Did you know that by May 11, 2018, financial institutions are required to comply with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network’s (FinCEN) new Beneficial Ownership Rule? FinCEN finalized its proposed ruling requiring banks and other financial institutions to identify and verify the identity of beneficial owners behind legal entity customers. Learn more about implementing this new rule and other global initiatives to advance financial transparency.


In this webinar you will learn how to:

  • Identify globally the growing controversy and discontent surrounding lack of financial transparency, and proposed solutions to advance reform.
  • Recall the nuts and bolts of the U.S. Treasury's recently released CDD rule, including new beneficial ownership requirements intended to tackle financial transparency, and challenges to implementation.
  • Discern the new world of verifying shell corporations, using public record tools and other best practices.
