This task will not be easy – Russian elites are known for using shell companies registered in secrecy jurisdictions and labyrinthine corporate structures to hide their wealth.

In this Masterclass recording, we discuss how to use corporate data to identify assets tied to Russian oligarchs in Europe.

How sanctioned and politically exposed Russian oligarchs use complex corporate structures to hide their wealth.

Russian billionaires with close ties to the state need to legitimize and protect their significant wealth from harsh U.S. and international sanctions. They often hide behind complex corporate structures in Europe and globally. We will discuss common features of how these networks are structured and how they operate.

How to use public data and graph analytics to see the whole picture of these high-risk networks worldwide, including legal entities and real property.

Public data can help you quickly identify risk tied to Russian oligarch networks, including hidden ties to sanctioned or known high-risk companies, the overlap between shell companies and legitimate Russian entities, and the role of facilitator networks.

Real world cases, including sanctioned Russian oligarchs with holdings that span the United Kingdom, France, Luxembourg, the British Virgin Islands, and more.

Put what you’ve learned into action with a case study of the Rotenbergs, Russian billionaires who have used their global corporate network to conduct tens of millions of dollars of transactions through the global financial system despite sanctions.
