Professional Details   
Professional "Headline": 
Owner & Editor, OffshoreAlert (Miami)
  The professional headline is a sum up their professional “identity” in a short phrase. Examples: Author of 'Treasure Islands: Tax Havens and The Men Who Stole The World' or Former Chairman Cayman Islands Monetary Authority & Partner in Maples and Calder law firm. This is not the 'teaser' which should be added under the summary tab.

David Marchant has been a journalist since 1984, working in the United Kingdom, Bermuda and the USA. He is the sole shareholder and editor of OffshoreAlert, which is based in Miami, Florida. Launched in 1997, OffshoreAlert publishes investigative news and documents about offshore finance and holds annual conferences in Miami Beach and London about financial intelligence and investigations.

David has exposed countless high-value financial crimes and his work is regularly referenced by regional, national and international news organizations around the world.

David and/or OffshoreAlert have been sued multiple times for libel in the Cayman Islands, Canada, Grenada, Panama and the USA and have never paid one cent in costs or damages to the plaintiffs and never published an apology or retraction regarding articles being complained about.

The owner of the first corporate plaintiffs that sued for libel was subsequently sentenced to 17 years in prison after being found guilty of tax fraud and money laundering. Several officers of other plaintiffs were also subsequently charged and/or convicted of financial crimes after unsuccessfully filing defamation actions.

David Marchant
As any fule kno, the biggest enemy of fraud, corruption, money laundering, and other forms of financial crime is transparency, while their best friend is secrecy. That's why the unprecedented mass sealing of cases that's taking place at the Financial Services Division of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands is repugnant to anyone with a genuine concern for financial crime.
