Offshore secrecy: inside the movement to crack it open

When British MPs moved this week to force Britain’s Overseas Territories to abolish corporate secrecy by the end of the decade, it was a big moment for anti-corruption campaigners everywhere.

But for one group working towards building a vast, open, global register of who owns what, it was just the beginning.

Open Ownership was created in late 2016 by seven anti-corruption organisations. Although it is small and not-for-profit, it has large ambitions: it wants to open up the murky world of offshore havens to scrutiny, so that individuals can no longer hide ill-gotten wealth behind inscrutable facades of clandestine jurisdictions.
