A lobby group representing offshore businesses spoke of having “superb penetration” at the highest levels of the British government before a G8 summit that was expected to bring more transparency into the sector. The International Financial Centres Forum worked frantically behind the scenes to thwart a regulatory overhaul that would have introduced new obligations for Britain’s overseas territories and crown dependencies.
The firm at the centre of the Paradise Papers leak has been repeatedly criticised by inspectors in different jurisdictions for failures in the way it applies regulations designed to thwart money laundering and terrorist financing. A stinging report by the Bermuda Monetary Authority (BMA) into Appleby’s operations in Hamilton left the firm privately acknowledging that it was being accused of “persistent failures and deficiencies” in some key areas, which resulted in the company being fined.
Geheimhaltung– und inkonsequente Kontrolle – haben dem Sektor gute Dienste geleistet. In den vergangenen 40 Jahren ist die Zahl der ausländischen Steuerparadiese exponentiell angewachsen; in den 70ern boten sie Einzelnen die Möglichkeit, ihr Geld vor korrupten und verbrecherischen Regierungen in instabilen Ländern zu verstecken, oder ermöglichten es Banken, Geld zu verschieben, um Währungsfluktuationen zu vermeiden.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
