Behind the scenes of the Pandora Papers

An exclusive fireside chat with the investigators who exposed Pandora Papers

Description

The ICIJ’s largest-ever investigation into the offshore world exposed some of the financial secrets of politicians, billionaires, and the global elite.

The investigation brought together documents coming from 14 different law firms and trust specialists that they claim facilitated the creation of ‘offshore shell companies’.

To date, it’s also the largest journalism collaboration ever. Spanning nearly two years, 600+ reporters from news outlets covering 117 countries shared their findings and collaborated on stories about wealthy businessmen, criminal kingpins, and political power brokers.

 For the global finance industry, the Pandora Papers put under the spotlight the importance of effective due diligence and PEP risk management.

This virtual event hosted by Helen Hatton, brings you into discussion with the investigators who exposed the Pandora Papers as well as those involved in the subsequent BBC Panorama documentary and other leading experts in this field.

Helen Hatton is widely recognized as the prime architect of the modern Jersey regulatory regime. She resigned as Deputy Director General of the Jersey Financial Services Commission in May 2009, having led the implementation of regulatory development in the island from its blacklisted state in 1999 to achieving one of the world’s best IMF evaluation results, to establish Sator Regulatory Consulting, which merged with BDO Jersey in April 2016. Prior to taking up her roles in Jersey, Helen was Director of Enforcement with the Isle of Man Financial Supervision Commission from 1992-1999, introducing the first offshore ‘all crimes’ money laundering regime in 1997 and, notably, achieving the world’s first ‘freestanding’ offshore Mareva injunction without a local cause of action in the case SIB-v-Lloyd Wright. This milestone case brought an effective end to banking secrecy in the Crown Dependencies.
