The 'Bahamas Papers'

Bahama papersOn Thursday, a new cache of leaked offshore corporate documents were made public from the Bahamas, marking the latest setback for international financial transparency. The same group that released the Panama Papers has now brought documents containing information about 175,000 Bahamian companies to light. The information from these documents is more basic but nevertheless, still enlightening with links to prime ministers, cabinet officials, princes, and convicted felons.

As Wealth Management notes, the release of the papers is an advance, not a setback, for international financial transparency.
