How To Investigate a Bank

Here's the inside story of a collaborative investigation that exposed how the Swiss branch of one of the world’s biggest banks, HSBC, profited from doing business with tax dodgers and criminals around the world. Team members talk about how they reconstructed and mined the leaked financial data to find the patterns of wrongdoing that made headlines around the world and triggered official inquiries in several countries. Also: why the French journalists who obtained the files decided to share them with colleagues around the world rather than have their own scoop.

This session is made in collaboration with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ).
