We would like to invite you to join our upcoming international seminar “Beneficial Ownership: New Developments in Latin America and International Practices.”
Beneficial Ownership Transparency (BOT) is critically needed. Knowing the real people, or “beneficial owners” behind a company, legal structure or asset can help fight corruption, money laundering, tax evasion, terrorism financing, and a whole host of other crimes that hurt Latin America as a region. Also, Beneficial Ownership registries can empower citizens, private sector leaders, journalists and law enforcement with open access to this important information.
This conference tackles new developments in Beneficial Ownership Transparency in Latin America. It addresses key questions facing the region, such as: Why is BOT needed in our countries? Why are registries key to unveiling anonymous owners? What international lessons learned can be applied to Latin American BOT efforts?
Experts from government entities, including Financial Intelligence Units, as well as international specialists, will share their views and comments on Beneficial Ownership and Beneficial Ownership Transparency, highlighting ways that BOT can be used in Latin America to prevent corruption, money laundering, and other financial crimes.
Panel 1: Towards Beneficial Ownership Transparency in Latin America
