Central Registry of Beneficial Ownership

Earlier this month the decision was taken that location of the private register of beneficial ownership information would be housed at the Guernsey Registry.

Although The Finance Industry had shown a strong preference for this to be housed at the GFSC we have committed along with GIBA to assist in the working party to ensure that the new Registry will, whilst meeting all international obligations meet the highest standards possible in security and confidentiality. If anyone has any concerns or comments or wish to provide input regarding this please can they contact either Paul Hodgson or Mark Pattimore.
