The S&O Institute is pleased to invite you to its upcoming seminar with two remarkable guest speakers:
Bradley C. Birkenfeld
One of the most significant financial whistleblowers in history and
The author of Lucifer’s Banker
As an international private banker, he exposed how UBS, the world’s largest bank, helped ultra-wealthy Americans commit billions in tax fraud. His bombshell revelations cracked the impenetrable fortress of Swiss banks, proving that offshore financial institutions systematically aided clients’ tax evasion. His case triggered monumental changes in banking laws, the federal tax code and international tax treaties.
Niels’ primary research interests include International Taxation, Tax Evasion, Tax Avoidance, Tax Planning, Taxation of Multinational Firms, Taxation and Regulation of the Financial Sector. Niels is one of the coauthors of the controversial World Bank paper (Elite Capture of Foreign Aid: Evidence from Off Shore Bank Accounts) that linked its aid payouts to money funnelled to financial havens.
Niels' talk will be about offshore tax evasion.
