Register of beneficial owners: disclosure requirements in the EU, Liechtenstein and Switzerland

Moving to Switzerland

Registers of beneficial owners (also referred to as UBO or transparency registers) were introduced in EU Member States as well as other countries in an effort to combat money laundering and the financing of terrorism. To do so, knowledge of the beneficial owners of both companies and asset management structures is crucial. Philipp Zünd and Ignaz Müller take a look at the different regulations governing the disclosure of beneficial owners in the EU, the Principality of Liechtenstein and Switzerland.
