Our UBO Database: Beyond the UBO

In our UBO Database, you will find owners, shareholders, and pseudo-UBOs from 0.01% ownership from millions of companies worldwide. We link these individuals to companies and business entities within complex legal business structures: this creates a deep and comprehensive picture of ownership. We call this Beyond the UBO, and it helps companies to become truly risk-aware.

What is a UBO at Altares?

Worldwide, we identify companies with our unique D-U-N-S-number. These companies are connected top -> bottom, creating a corporate structure. To this we connect individuals and companies that have an ownership in these companies. We identify owners, shareholders and pseudo-UBOs from 0.01% ownership and you determine the UBO based on your own guidelines.

Example of a UBO at Altares

This example shows how difficult it can be to get all the beneficiaries in the picture. Often a UBO is seen as a beneficiary with >25% shareholding. In that case, there would be three UBOs (B. Jansen, C. Jansen and P. Pieters), while there is a fourth beneficiary (A. Jansen). Many companies would determine that there are three UBOs, but so in total there are four beneficiaries that could pose a risk.

What makes Altares' UBO Database unique?

Establishing UBOs worldwide

Because an organization often consists of different layers, subsidiaries, and parent companies, it is complex to find out who is actually the stakeholder(s) of the company, especially if entities are located in different countries. In order to determine the UBO, you need a database that can establish links between individuals and companies worldwide. Altares' UBO Database has global coverage.
