Global anti-money laundering (AML) standards have long required that understanding beneficial ownership be a part of a financial institution's AML program. Identifying beneficial ownership, however, can be a complex process.

Beneficial ownership outlines the identity of individuals with a controlling interest in a privately-held company, enabling a financial institution to understand the ultimate beneficiary of a financial transaction. With new guidance from the Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering (FATF) and specific local legislation and rules from the likes of the U.S. Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), the Monetary Authority of Singapore and the European Union, beneficial ownership has grown as a hot topic for AML compliance professionals globally.
