Ultimate Beneficial Ownership (UBO) refers to the persons or entities that are the ultimate beneficiary of a company. UBO also refers to situations in which ownership or controls are exercised through a chain of ownership, and by means other than direct control.

The European Union’s Fourth Anti-Money Laundering Directive (4AMLD) substantially addressed Ultimate Beneficial Ownership — by stipulating persons who have a share, voting rights or control of more than 25% are classed as Ultimate Beneficial Owner.

Manual processes are prone to errors, as every touchpoint is a potential mistake that could be costly while slowing down the onboarding or monitoring process for clients.

Credas’ solution streamlines Ultimate Beneficial Ownership checks in real-time and allows you to efficiently run AML and KYC checks against individuals, providing up-to-date, real-time information that can help supercharge your due diligence and compliance workflow.
