About

How to get the balance right between protecting financial privacy and ensuring illicit money isn’t able to hide from legitimate law enforcement remains one of the thorniest topics for wealth managers and policymakers. This briefing draws together experts from a number of fields to explore the latest developments in areas such as disclosure and reporting on beneficial ownership; the information powers of tax authorities such as HM Revenue & Customs; the impact of upcoming new data protection laws, and some new options for family offices making investments.
