In June 2012, the ACWG completed a survey, based on a questionnaire by the World Bank, on asset tracing in G20 countries that resulted in a compendium of country profiles. In view of the significant developments that took place over the last five years in the areas of transparency of beneficial ownership, it was time to update these country profiles. In this regard the G20 Anti-Corruption Implementation Plan 2017-2018 specifically provides that countries will share their practices and experiences on how they access, in a timely fashion, up-to-date information held by banks on beneficial ownership of bank accounts .
