Two ICIJ’s investigations – the Luxembourg Leaks and Swiss Leaks projects – sought to pull back the veil of secrecy surrounding tax havens around the world. In Luxembourg Leaks, ICIJ used secret documents to expose the backroom deals that allowed more than 370 companies – including Disney and Ikea – to avoid billions of euros in taxes on profits they channeled through Luxembourg. The Swiss Leaks project was based on 60,000 leaked files that revealed how the Swiss branch of HSBC, one of the world’s largest banks, profited from doing business with criminals and tax dodgers around the world.
