Learn how Athennian generates charts!

Charts show ownership relationships between entities described as percentages. Charts in Athennian are automatically generated via the equity transactions generated in the Securities tab.

Any entity in the chart will contain the name of the entity, jurisdiction, region, formation date, registration number, and Tax ID number when the Show entity details checkbox is selected. 




4 viewing options for connections:

  1. Downward:  This view is used to see the target entity and all its connections below
  2. Upward and downward: This view is used to see all the upward and downward connections i.e.  the entire organizational chart
  3. Upward (direct) and downward: This view is used to see the full downward chart, i.e going down from the target entity and including all horizontal connections but from the target entity upward, you will see the direct vertical line, of any entity that is directly connected and an owner of the target entity
  4. Upward (direct) only: This view is used to see the direct vertical line of any entity that is directly connected and an owner of the target entity


To meet transparency and KYC requirements, charts will now show who the highest owner is as a Person. To show/hide shareholders that are people in charts, click on the Owner Type field and select Entities and People. Selecting this option will enable the Min Ownership % (People) and/or Min Ownership % (Entities) fields to enter the ownership percentage information to be included in the chart.

When filtering, the chart will now adjust to remove any subsidiaries from the entity that has been filtered out. For example, if the Jurisdiction filter is set to only pull entities in Canada, the chart will not only exclude all entities outside Canada from the chart but their subsidiaries whether or not they're in Canada. On the other hand, if the top entity is in Canada and the jurisdiction filter is set to the US, both the top entity and its subsidiary will be filtered out i.e. no chart will be returned. This also implies that users may get different results from filters based on the connections view selected.

As with Share Registers and Ledgers, you can now also look back in time at your charts! Simply enter the AS AT DATE above the chart.

The chart, as of that specific date, will display.
