Webinar – Ownership changes of Italian companies during the Covid-19 emergency
As reported on several occasions by the Ministry of the Interior and UIF-Bank of Italy, Covid-19 has offered multiple opportunities to organized crime to infiltrate the legitimate economy and take possession of companies facing difficulties. For this reason, it is necessary to monitor the ownership changes of the companies and identify all the anomalies and risk factors among the new beneficial owners and ownership structures that could be symptomatic of suspicious situations of money laundering and criminal infiltration.
The analysis carried out by Transcrime-Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore with the support of Bureau van Dijk has investigated the issue of ownership changes of Italian companies during and after the first phase of the Covid-19 emergency (April-September 2020) and the consequent economic crisis.
The webinar, which will be held on Tuesday 18 May at 11 am, will be an opportunity to present the results of the analysis and discuss the practical implications of the study.
