2    2006 - FATF – OECD - Misuse of corporate vehicles - The FATF has conducted an examination of the ways in    
     which Corporate Vehicles (legal entities, including corporations, trusts, foundations and partnerships with limited   46/37627377.pdf
     liability) can be exploited for money laundering or terrorist financing purposes. The study of corporate vehicles
     found evidence of their misuse for money laundering / terrorist financing. The report identifies a number of risk
     factors and concludes that this misuse could be significantly reduced if governments have access to information
     about the beneficial owner, the source of assets, and the business objective of the company or trust.
