Hi, 
When I (or my client) google my business name "A&A Group"; the knowledge graph results shows 
"The A&A Group Limited" with a link on Subsidiary: Hyperformance Ltd. After clicking this link it takes me/anyone to another Knowledge graph showing result for "Hyperformance Ltd." along with Parent organization link: The A&A Group Limited. 
Surprisingly we don't have any connection to that subsidiary. Neither in past nor in present.  We don't want Google to associate our business either with Hyperformance Ltd or The A&A Group Limited.   I request Google not to show any of the knowledge graphs (Hyperformance Ltd or The A&A Group Limited) when our business name "A&A Group" is searched. 
 
Please address this concern with immediate attention.

Hi @Admin A

 

This is a forum with volunteer users, so, people here won't be able to affect what Google shows / does not show. 

 

The knowledge panel is determined algorythmically based on user's behavior and intent. Google determined that users who search for "a&a group" are likely to be searching for "he a&a group limited", which is not unreasonable, as this insurance company seems to be relatively well established and has been around for many decades. 

 

Similarly, a bar in my city with the name "Hemingway" should not expect Google to not show a knowledge panel for Ernest Hemingway when people search for their name. 

 

What you can do - is significantly improve prominence and authority of the business, so when people search for your business name Google will correctly attribute it to you.
