Pandora Papers: A trove of nearly 12 million confidential documents, collectively known as the Pandora Papers, reveals the hidden assets and secret deals of some of the world’s wealthiest and most influential people, including 130 billionaires, 35 current and former world leaders, and more than 330 politicians and public officials.

The documents — shared with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) by an anonymous source — include records from 14 financial service providers worldwide. The leaked files illustrate the global entanglement of political power and secretive offshore finance and how U.S. trusts are sheltering millions in controversial assets. For close to two years, ICIJ led an investigation into these documents with 150 media organizations, including FRONTLINE.
