Hi! I am still here. I was once a banker and now I write for Dealbreaker and answer your questions about banking and whatnot. You can send questions to email@example.com with "ask a banker" in the subject line, or ask on Twitter (@planetmoney).
Earlier this summer, we set up two shell companies in tax havens. On today's show, we continue our quest to figure out what people actually do with shell companies.
We discover the world of "Asset Protection," which is a fancy way of saying "hiding money." It's a world of Latvian companies and offshore conferences, of people trying to hide money from their future-ex-husbands and future-ex-wives.

Hi! My name's Matt. I write about the financial industry for a site called Dealbreaker. Before that, I made a living as an investment banker, underwriting convertible bonds and other equity-linked securities and selling equity derivatives to corporate clients. (I know!)
