Show The Pandora papers are the largest trove of leaked data exposing tax haven secrecy in history.
They provide a rare window into the hidden world of offshore finance, casting light on the financial secrets of some of the world’s richest people.
In total, the trove consists of 11.9m files leaked from a total of 14 offshore service providers, totalling 2.94 terabytes of information.
That makes it larger in volume than both the Panama papers (2016) and Paradise papers (2017), two previous offshore leaks.
The 14 offshore service providers in the leak provide corporate services to individuals or companies seeking to do business offshore.
Companies registered offshore can be used to hold assets such as property, aircraft, yachts and investments in stocks and shares.
The Pandora papers represent the latest – and largest in terms of data volume – in a series of major leaks of financial data that have convulsed the offshore world since 2013. »
