Summary “Secrecy For Sale: Inside The Global Offshore Money Maze” is one of the largest and most complex cross-border investigative projects in journalism history. The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists collaborated with 112 journalists in 58 countries in stripping away the biggest mystery associated with tax havens: the owners of anonymous “shell companies,” which are the tools of choice for money launderers, tax dodgers and other financial wrongdoers. The reporting was based on 2.5 million secret files related to 10 offshore centers. The files contain details on more than 120,000 offshore companies and trusts and nearly 130,000 individuals and agents, in more than 170 countries and territories.
