Webinar – Why the United States is Becoming the World’s Largest Offshore Financial Centre

In this exclusive Webinar to accompany his KYC360 article Bruce Zagaris will talk about the flight of capital from traditional OFC’s to the United States and consider how America’s refusal to play by the rules it has imposed on other countries is leading to accusations of double standards. As the United States is the largest kid in the playground it is benefiting from capital inflows as foreign financial centres feel the pain of common reporting standards and greater transparency.
