Beneficial ownership transparency and listed companies

Download document


This technical note aims to support implementers of national beneficial ownership registers in reducing risks associated with exemptions from disclosure that exist for listed companies. It is not intended as an endorsement of the policy of exempting listed companies from beneficial ownership disclosure. Rather, the aim is to create actionable advice that can reduce the impact of policy loopholes and produce high-quality data about listed companies in contexts where exemptions remain a reality.
