London is an attractive and useful hub for the global corrupt to launder their loot and reputations.

Billions of pounds have been invested in the capital’s prestigious and pricey real estate – often through secret offshore companies.

Highly paid London lawyers, accountants, bankers wealth managers, property consultants and public affairs compete to serve kleptocrats, their families and hangers-on.

For the past seven years, Finance Uncovered has contributed to, and broken, a large number of articles and films that reveal how these London "enablers" work for highly controversial politically exposed people, while the UK government fails to close down loopholes.
