How does Altares collect information on beneficial owners?

For each company, Altares experts reconstruct the capital structure (based on its SIREN number) to identify all natural persons who hold at least 1% of the share capital. We therefore go beyond the beneficial owners holding at least 25% of the capital. Indeed, Altares’ Data Science teams have developed an algorithm that allows us to calculate the exact level of ownership.
