Business Schemes That Make It Easy for Russian Oligarchs to Hide Their Assets in the UK:
weakness in art market regarding money laundering
and sanctions evasion

April 28

2 pm UK time

Webinar (online)


This informative event is designed to explore the ways that Russian individuals and entities hide their connections in the United Kingdom, and what that means for global politics and security.

In recent years, concerns have grown about the extent to which some Russians have used the United Kingdom to hide their assets and connections. Our experts will examine the various methods used to conceal these ties and the implications for British society.

Join us for a thought-provoking and informative discussion that sheds light on one of the most pressing challenges facing British society today.

Main topics:

The different strategies used by Russians to obscure their links, e.g offshore companies and real estate investments

UK "golden visas" as a threat to national security and a disguise for dirty money.

Geneva Freeport and the UK art market as a "twilight zone" for money laundering.

Using open data to identify toxic connections. Exciting and handy cases from the experts' practice.
