Existing literature makes a strong case for beneficial ownership transparency (BOT), particularly when it comes to tackling issues such as money laundering and other illicit financial flows. To date, however, little research has sought to quantify the economic benefits of BOT reform. This is a potential obstacle for informed policy making. Between January and March 2022, Oxford Insights and Lateral Economics conducted research for Open Ownership to help understand what economic benefits can be expected from beneficial ownership transparency policies and how we can measure their extent. It looks at what has been done so far to measure the economic impact of BOT and how quantitative evidence might be used to advance BOT policymaking in the future.
This is the full report. The summary report is available here.
