ICIJ releases new Pandora Papers data from two offshore service providers

The Internal Consortium of Investigative Journalists has published data from on the beneficial owners of over 15,000 companies, trusts, foundations and other entities from the Pandora Papers investigation. The data comes from two of the fourteen service providers that made up the leak, with more data from the other service providers coming in 2022.

With this publication, ICIJ’s Offshore Leaks database now contains crucial information about more than 800,000 offshore entities that stem from five different leaks, and links to people and companies in more than 200 countries and territories.

The addition of this data brings more transparency about the real owners of companies, foundations and trusts registered in secrecy jurisdictions. In all, the interactive application reveals more than 740,000 names of people and companies behind secret offshore structures.

ICIJ is publishing this information in the public interest. While the presence of a person’s or a company’s name is not intended to suggest or imply that they have engaged in illegal or improper conduct, ICIJ believes that providing this data to all for free helps shine a light on the damage perpetrated by the offshore economy.
