It would be a game changer if more journalists and campaigners could understand financial statements. Power would be held to account more effectively.
But too many reporters lack confidence with numbers and finance.
So we work to fix that.
We train journalists in how to follow the money. And we also support and investigate with them.
We use financial skills to produce compelling stories – not just about corruption, kleptocracy and tax abuse, but also climate change, human rights violations and more.
At Finance Uncovered, we don't just train or investigate. We do both.
Our Follow the Money financial journalism training is devised by journalists for journalists (and NGOs). We strive to empower participants by giving them knowledge, skills and confidence to understand financial statements, how to source company documents and then piece together investigations.
We don’t say goodbye to our participants at the end of a course. We consolidate learning and connections made with our alumni by running a helpdesk and support service offering technical advice. We want to see your stories get over the line.
We build and lead our own investigations, and make major contributions to others. We partner with brave investigative centres and civil society actors around the world and support global collaborations with the likes of Africa Uncensored, the ICIJ and the OCCRP.
