Course Overview:
The Ultimate Beneficial Owner, shortly known as UBO, defines the company’s beneficiary’s legal entity. According to the requirement of the regulator, all financial institutions including banks must disclose the UBO for various reasons. One of the reasons for this is to prevent serious crimes such as money laundering and terrorist financing. The lack of disclosure of UBOs paves the way for people to launder money through companies.
