/ Datenna Economic Intelligence

Datenna’s platform is worldwide the leading economic intelligence on the Chinese industry and innovation landscape.



With Datenna’s investment-screening software it becomes easy to successfully screen any incoming Chinese investment and discover hidden unwanted government or military links.

When screening incoming investments it is vital to know who the investor is, and which  entities are involved in their ownership and decision-making. In order to perform an accurate Ultimate Beneficial Owner (UBO) analysis all relevant stakeholders within a company have to be laid out. Obtaining detailed information is the only way to identify all opportunities and potential risks that a foreign investment could bring along. Governmental and military influence easily goes unnoticed, given that in Chinese firms these can often conceal their ownership through many layers of ownership.

Missing out on just one layer can already keep the investigator from pinpointing the real UBO and other relevant stakeholders. This can create a potential risk to strategic and sensitive assets and cause unwanted technology transfer. Datenna’s OSINT platform provides full insights into ownership structures, shareholders, investments, and more. No longer will identifying the real UBO of a Chinese entity be difficult nor long-lasting.  The screening of investments and identification of a company’s main shareholders will become a transparent and quick process.
