Financial Journalism: Follow-the-Money Case Studies

These sessions will guide you through a real life investigation into dodgy dealings, offshore scams and shell companies. Each case study will provide you with copies of actual documents that the investigators used to identify points of interest and unearth the next piece of information or set of documents. Delegates will need to look carefully through each and take part in a guided discussion to determine where they might look next.

Specific to each session

Unpicking the relationship between the world’s largest commodities trader and the top fixer for the President of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

2. The Deceivers
A chain of coincidences stretches across several regions. Spot the common themes in this offshore trail, and see where it leads.
