AML in the distribution context

Transparency in the investment chain: – know your distributor, know your client and know your beneficial owner. With the implementation of the 4th AML Directive, the coming into life of the Ultimate Beneficial Ownership Register and increased scrutiny from the CSSF, notably through the new “Manco” Circular, what do the authorities expect from asset managers and service providers? Who reports what to whom and how is the process being vetted?
