Key findings of project DATACROS – Assessing Financial Crime Risk factors in firms’ Ownership Structure
Criminal organizations increasingly adopt legal companies and complex cross-border ownership structures to cover their illicit activities, and to conceal the laundering of corruption proceeds. Project DATACROS, co-funded by the European Commission, DG Home Affairs (ISF Police 2017-AG-CORRUPT-823792), and coordinated by Transcrime, has produced:
- an aggregate analysis of ownership anomalies for 56 million companies in 29 European countries
- a prototype tool designed for Law Enforcement Agencies and Anticorruption Agencies to support the real-time identification of companies at high risk of corruption, money laundering, tax fraud and other financial crimes.
