Seminar: How ‘bullet-proof’ is your Source of Wealth Due Diligence?
GACO and C6 wish to welcome you to a Breakfast Seminar on the importance of having adequate Source of Wealth Due Diligence and to fully understand Ultimate Beneficial Ownership of clients and third parties in order to keep your organisation clear of sanction violations.
Nick Parfitt, Head of Market Planning C6 will discuss how you can avoid being exposed to sanction violations by properly assessing Ultimate Beneficial Ownership of clients and third parties; how fully unwrapping corporate structures will help your company expose compliance risks buried within the ownership structure of a company; and will demonstrate how a proper Source of Wealth Assessment goes beyond simply identifying the assets owned.
Recent international sanctions against Russian Oligarchs and their associated companies clearly provide evidence the importance of Source of Wealth Due Diligence that goes beyond simply identifying the assets owned. When organisations have on-boarded commercial clients or corporate third parties without fully understanding the Ultimate Beneficial Owners (UBOs) of these entities, they may be exposing themselves to sanctions violations. Fully unwrapping corporate structures and identifying the UBOs will help organisations expose compliance risks buried within the ownership structure of a company. A similar challenge presents itself in financial services for licensees attempting to conduct Source of Wealth due diligence. Assessments of an individual’s Source of Wealth are also relevant to companies in gaming, DLT/Blockchain providers, investment migration, or any industry where deposits are taken from wealthier, and potentially, higher risk customers.
