A New Blog of Note

Jérôme Turquey has created a blog about financial havens in Europe where he analyses and compares legislation versus what is actually implemented. He focuses on Luxembourg, the UK and Switzerland since they are major centers, (in terms of the amount of offshore assets) but he publishes as well about Monaco, Isle of Man, Jersey, Liechtenstein.

His blog uses only official public information (legal, parliamentary, judiciary, administrative…) and documents that are not originally in English are translated.

The blog is in the framework of a course he was asked to provide about financial havens in Europe (Master’s degree in Criminal Sciences) and is intended to provide investor, companies head offices and regulators with information on what’s actually going on beyond ethical statements and international assessments (FATF, IMF, GRECO, OECD).

Take a look. Jérôme and I plan to collaborate on some further reporting about PwC in Luxembourg.
