Our Mission

Our mission is to increase the quantity and quality of media coverage on global financial flows, with a particular focus on tax abuse, corruption and money laundering. We deliver world class training in financial investigations from leading practitioners.

About us

The 244 journalists and campaigners we have trained are a global network covering 71 countries. We leverage that network to create international collaborative projects which break new ground in investigative journalism. More than half our members come from the developing world and we focus on building capacity in developing world newsrooms.

Our Funding

Finance Uncovered started life in 2012 as a Tax Justice Network programme funded by Joseph Rowntrees Charitable Trust and Oxfam Novib. In April 2015, we incorporated as a company limited by guarantee and separated from TJN at the end of 2016.  We are very grateful for the support and understanding TJN gave our initiative.

We currently receive grants from Adessium Foundation, the Joffe Charitable Trust, the Lorana Sullivan Foundation, the National Endowment for Democracy, the Natural Resource Governance Initiative, Open Society Foundations and the William & Flora Hewlett Foundation. In 2017, we also derived income from training we provided to Public Services International.

This year we will deliver two four-day courses in London for over 60 journalists. Attendees will include around 30 journalists on full scholarships from the developing and emerging world.

Finance Uncovered currently employs three full-time journalists who work with our 244-strong global network on cross-border collaborations focusing on illicit finance. If you would like to know more about our work, please get in touch using the form below.

Journalists who have participated in our programme produce hard hitting investigative stories. Armed with the knowledge they have gained on the course they uncover the real stories that inform the public about global economic trends and illicit financial flows.

Below are a selection of stories produced by course participants.
