Corrupt Britain: The Land of Cover Ups, Whitewashes & Secrecy
 
46:28
This session will look at - and seek to explain - the British obsession with cover-ups and whitewashes, as evidenced in recent years by farcical and less-than-honest inquiries into matters such as phone-hacking, Hillsborough, and Jimmy Savile and a prevailing attitude of 'protect the establishment at all costs'. It will also look at the hypocrisy of British politicians who claim to advocate transparency and integrity, particularly for offshore financial centres, while practicing secrecy and deceit.

How Litigation Funding Is Shaking Up The Legal Industry
 
58:24
How Litigation Funding Is Shaking Up The Legal Industry: Law firms are out of ideas on how to boost profits, other than rate hikes. Corporate clients are frequently unimaginative and reluctant to experiment with anything other than rate discounts. The Bench is conservative and concerned about control over cases, rather than promoting responsible access to the legal system. This session will explore the notion that all of these issues are fully addressed by responsible risk sharing and that, arguably, funding is the only historically transformative and disruptive innovation since contingencies (1700s) and insurance (1800s).

Hypocrisy USA: The Country's Role as a Money Laundering Center & Offshore Tax Haven - Miami 2016
 
01:37:14
The United States routinely takes the moral high ground when accusing offshore jurisdictions of facilitating money laundering and tax evasion to the detriment of the world's major countries and the global economy in general. But is it a case of the pot calling the kettle black? This session will look at the involvement of the USA, its banks, attorneys, corporate agents, realtors and others in providing services to money launderers and tax evaders, contributing to property booms in cities like New York and Miami and economic booms in states like Delaware and Nevada. Evidence provided will include a hidden-camera investigation by Global Witness into whether attorneys in New York were prepared to set up anonymous accounts to conceal the identity of a prospective client who they were led to believe was seeking to launder the proceeds of corruption.

Corruption in Soccer – The Secret World of FIFA: Bribes, Vote Rigging and Ticket Scandals
 
01:21:07
June 03, 2015 by David Marchant via OffshoreAlert - Allegations of fraud, bribery and money laundering in indictments against 14 individuals associated with soccer's world governing body FIFA unsealed last week would have come as no surprise to attendees of OffshoreAlert's annual conference in Miami Beach … way back in 2010. In a session entitled 'Corruption in Soccer – The Secret World of FIFA: Bribes, Vote-Rigging and Ticket Scandals', investigative journalist Andrew Jennings talked at length about the scams that, years later, would form the basis of the indictments. Indeed, five of the 14 individual defendants were featured prominently in Andrew's presentation five years ago, namely Chuck Blazer, Nicolas Leoz, Jack Warner, and his sons Daryan and Daryll. FIFA was so concerned about the session and the potential impact on its operations that it instructed London-based solicitors Harris Cartier to send us a warning letter prior to the event, the gist of which was that Andrew was a loose cannon embarking on "an unjustified and malicious campaign against our client" and that OffshoreAlert might be sued for defamation if the session proceeded as advertised. Download the letter at: http://www.offshorealert.com/fifa-corruption-letter-to-offshorealert-over-andrew-jennings-conference-session.aspx I told FIFA to 'get lost', the session went ahead without any censorship, and FIFA is now in a spectacular crisis that will only get worse and could easily end with its liquidation. Harris Cartier law firm going bust in 2013 with an estimated net deficiency of £2.9 million was an unexpected bonus. All the sponsors, bankers, politicians and others who provided money, services and support to FIFA since our session in 2010 cannot plausibly claim they didn't know what was going on. FIFA's corruption was an open secret and it should have been obvious to anyone with eyes and ears that its senior personnel were riff-raff. Also coming out of this badly is the nation of Trinidad & Tobago for allowing then-FIFA VP Jack Warner - an extreme example of human filth - to swindle its national soccer team out of more than US$10 million they were due for participating in the 2006 World Cup. That's no way to treat heroes. Warner reminds me of Cayman's on-again, off-again government leader McKeeva Bush. Everyone knows he's corrupt, yet local voters continue to elect him to parliament, his party colleagues continue to appoint him to high office, and banks continue to provide accounts for him to launder his corrupt proceeds. And, as with Warner and other FIFA insiders, unless the US does something, Bush will never be held accountable for his actions. That's the world we live in.

The $1B Moldova Bank Fraud et al: How Eastern European Crime Proceeds Are Laundered Into The West
 
01:25:09
Since 2008, half a trillion dollars has left Russia for Europe and America, with much of it being held through vehicles in the BVI and other offshore jurisdictions. Some of it represents the assets of oligarchs but a significant amount can be linked to narcotics trafficking, tax evasion and money laundering. Investigative journalists in eastern Europe tracked down the details of one such case - a $20 billion international money laundering scheme involving bribed judges in Moldova, organized crime groups, and Russian banks owned by Vladimir Putin's cousin. They will explain how money gets into the West and the state-of-the-art techniques, including the use of offshore structures, that are used to launder criminal proceeds. They will also introduce the 'Investigative Dashboard', a tool they designed to help investigators track these kind of cases.

Recovering Assets & Enforcing Judgments in China Using Offshore Means
 
57:55
China has historically been a dark hole for US judgment enforcement efforts. New strategies and court rulings have created a new mechanism, using offshore means, to recover money from China. Learn the latest developments, tips, strategies and best practices developed by the industry experts in this area. $10 billion of US investor money was lost when over 100 US listed China companies went dark in the past decade. The SEC has been unable to recoup money from China in any meaningful way. You will learn through a distinguished panel chaired by global asset recovery leader Ed Davis all about the alternative pathway that has been developed through cooperative efforts led by Robert Seiden of The Seiden Group and Confidential Global Investigations and Paul Pretlove of Zolfo Cooper and their work with other practitioners in the US, BVI, Hong Kong and China that has resulted in many millions recovered for investors.

Corruption in OFCs: How Big is The Problem & What Is Its Impact On International Business?
 
01:09:58
In the space of five days in December, 2012, two sitting or former Premiers of offshore jurisdictions in the Caribbean were arrested on suspicion of corruption, Michael Misick, of the Turks and Caicos Islands, and McKeeva Bush, of the Cayman Islands. In 2009, corruption was so out of control in the TCI that the United Kingdom suspended the local government and took direct control of its Overseas Territory. In the not-too-distant past, Bermuda had a leader who was considered to be openly corrupt, while the authorities in Antigua & Barbuda and Grenada assisted with frauds involving Allen Stanford and more than 40 offshore banks, respectively. This session from OffshoreAlert's 2013 Conference in Miami beach looked at corruption in Caribbean jurisdictions and how it affects international business that is conducted in them.

Trailer: Offshore v. Onshore Hedge Funds: A Comparison
 
04:15
Contrary to offshore hedge funds, US-registered ("onshore") funds are subject to strict marketing prohibitions, accredited investor requirements, limited number of investors, and tax disadvantage. Professors George Aragon, Bing Liang, and Hyuna Park did a study in which they exploited this difference to test predictions about organizational design, capital flow, and fund performance. They found that onshore funds impose stronger share restrictions such as a lockup provision than offshore funds, but hold more liquid assets. Their results show that capital flows are less sensitive to past performance in onshore funds than in offshore funds due to regulation on advertising, and the flow sensitivity difference affects performance. Liquidity-adjusted alpha is positive and significant (0.94% per month) only for stand-alone onshore funds that have not been affected by strong capital flows from offshore investors through a master-feeder structure.

Offshore Tax Fraud: Lessons Learned From 'The USA v. The Billionaire Wyly Brothers'
 
52:45
Offshore Tax Fraud: Lessons Learned From 'The USA v. The Billionaire Wyly Brothers' For decades, aggressive tax evasion strategies have been used by sophisticated investors and businesses to hide income and lower tax bills, usually through the use of proven failed methods. This session will review the massive offshore tax fraud committed by the billionaire Texas business moguls Samuel Wyly and Charles Wyly, and the numerous financial planning errors that caused their collapse, including improperly-used offshore trusts, lack of minimal disclosure, overly complex structures, failed tax strategies and the inability to use current aggressive tax avoidance methods as a substitute.

HOW BILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF EASTERN EUROPEAN CRIMINAL PROCEEDS ARE LAUNDERED INTO THE WEST
 
01:25:11
Presented by: DREW SULLIVAN Editor, Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (Bosnia and Herzegovina) & PAUL RADU Executive Director, Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (Romania) Since 2008, half a trillion dollars has left Russia for Europe and America, with much of it being held through vehicles in the BVI and other offshore jurisdictions. Some of it represents the assets of oligarchs but a significant amount can be linked to narcotics trafficking, tax evasion and money laundering. Investigative journalists in eastern Europe tracked down the details of one such case - a $20 billion international money laundering scheme involving bribed judges in Moldova, organized crime groups, and Russian banks owned by Vladimir Putin's cousin. They will explain how money gets into the West and the state-of-the-art techniques, including the use of offshore structures, that are used to launder criminal proceeds. They will also introduce the 'Investigative Dashboard', a tool they designed to help investigators track these kind of cases. Recorded on may 4, 2015 during The OffshoreAlert Conference in Miami at The Ritz Carlton, South Beach Hotel.

Fraud and Murder in the Bahamas: The Hywel Jones Affair - Complete Session
 
01:16:20
In 2009, offshore businessman Hywel Jones was shot and killed outside his office in the Bahamas. At the time, he was involved in a dispute with his former business partner, Lester Turnquest, whom Jones had accused in a civil lawsuit of defrauding $20 million from a Canadian client. In the months preceding his death, Jones had been viciously assaulted by intruders at his home, with the evidence indicating that a Bahamas policeman was involved. Three years later, no-one has been convicted in connection with the murder and although Turnquest was arrested - and released - in late 2009 in connection with the alleged $20 million fraud, he has not been charged with any crime. In this session, Hywel's brother, Illtyd Jones, who works as a film location manager in Hollywood, California, will discuss the murder, the police investigation, and, generally, share his views and experiences of dealing with the Bahamian authorities. This session will also look at wider evidence of corruption and injustice in the Bahamas and discuss how it impacts on foreign nationals who conduct business in the jurisdiction. EDITOR'S NOTE: The person who begins asking questions at the 50:16 mark is attorney Colin Callender, Managing Partner of Callenders & Co. law firm in the Bahamas. Although he did not disclose it when asking questions, Mr. Callender's law firm represents Lester Turnquest and, in fact, Lester Turnquest's brother, Stephen Turnquest, is a partner of Callenders & Co.

Using 1782 To Obtain Evidence In The USA For Your Foreign Proceeding
 
55:59
In legal proceedings around the world, the evidence trail invariably leads to the United States. Section 1782 of Title 28 of the United States Code - "Assistance to foreign and international tribunals and to litigants before such tribunals" - is a federal statute that allows a party to a legal proceeding outside the U. S. to apply to an American court to obtain evidence for use in the non-US proceeding. This session will show attendees how to take full advantage of this law.
