How Do They Hide in Offshore Havens?

Offshore havens provide the secrecy needed by organized crime. "Tax optimization" is not the main reason why criminals use offshores.

Most ofshore havens don't require identification of the real/beneficiary owner of a company. This allows criminals and corrupt politicians to hide behind proxies/straw parties.

The website of a major offshore formation agent lists a comparison chart between offshore havens. Important points in this chart are why to choose, for example, Panama over other offshore jurisdictions. Secrecy is the word of the day and by studying this chart you’ll be able to understand why criminals and crooked politicians choose offshore havens as their operational base.
