Threshold (Total ownership threshold):

Max # (Maximum number of nodes to display) - 0 (recommended) means system default:

Type (Type of map):


By default, when comparing a value against a user specified threshold, the "greather than or equal" operator is used. Often, strict "greater than" is more appropriate, espescially when dealing with beneficial owner definitions.

T-Rank Power Index

Control threshold

Entities with a voting power of at least the threshold below, will be marked with a red border. The threshold is also used for defining Corporate groups in Corporate group maps.

Corporate Group maps

Mark owners / owned above threshold

Owners/owned companies with an integrated ownership above this threshold will be marked with a black border.

Significant Owners definition

The Significant Owners definition is used in maps of type Significant Owners only. By Significant Owners we mean natural persons which to a certain extent owns or controls a company. Here, you may adjust the Significant Owners definition to suit your needs.

Voting power

All natural persons having a Voting Power of at least 50% is considered RRH. This method, combined with Integrated ownership is probably the best approach for identifying beneficial owners (based on ownership) if one look to the intention behind beneficial ownership regulations.

Integrated ownership

Integrated ownership is the sum of direct and indirect ownership. A person with an integrated ownership above threshold% will become Significant Owner.

Control of voting rights

Significant Owners are defined by a voting rights threshold: If a natural person controls companies which, together with the person himself, owns more than threshold% of the shares in a the subject company, he will be a Significant Owner. This approach is identical to the approach used to identify beneficial owners based on ownership in EU's 4th AML directive.

The Control threshold is used to identify when a person controls a company (de facto control) and is usually set somewhere between 99 and 100.

The ownership threshold is used to determine the minimum share of voting rights a natural person must control in order to be a Significant Owner. Common values are 25 or 10.

For this model, NA ownership links on the last level might be treated as the maximum possible value given the ther ownership links. Unless checked, NA links will be treated as 0%.

Treat NA links going to the subject company as the maximum percentage available (100% - all non-NA-links)

Ownership on each level (recursive approach)

This approach is used in norwegian and swedish AML legislation. A natural person is a Significant Owner when the ownership on each level in the ownership path is above a threshold. When investigating if a person is Significant Owner for more companies, the direct ownership of the person, together with all companies he has allready been found to be a Significant Owner for, is summed up.

Country markers

In order to quickly spot entities located in certain countries, you may add colour markers to the countries of interest. A circle with the selected colour will be placed in front of the BvD ID.
