A long form article from the NY Times unpicks how a wealthy businessman, who set out to divorce his wife, made his fortune vanish! The quest to find it by his wife would reveal the depths of an offshore financial system that is bigger than the U.S. economy.
Pursglove would rely on her own wealth squad: a pair of highly creative lawyers, using Pursglove herself as the ultimate informant. It would take them more than two years and millions of dollars to breach the defenses of the offshore financial world. Their efforts would leave a trail of thousands of pages of court documents through Canada and the United States, revealing the inner workings of a system exquisitely engineered to repel scrutiny.
