The Financial Secrecy Index

The Financial Secrecy Index ranks countries based on how much financial secrecy they supply to the world. A higher rank on the index does not necessarily mean a country is more secretive, but that the country plays a bigger role in enabling wealthy individuals and criminals to hide and launder money extracted from around the world.

The index is published once every two years.
