Inside Paradeplatz, Finanznews aus Zürich
Hässig launched the website ‘Inside Paradeplatz, Finanznews aus Zürich’. Under the headlines “Stasi UBS” and “UBS – “Kripo” interrogate bankers in a special chamber”, Inside Paradeplatz exposed the methods of former policemen, employed as company detectives in the second biggest Swiss bank. Data was stored in a probably illegal way, and shared with other banks and financial companies. Hässig not only produces courageous, ground-breaking investigative journalism on the world of so-called ‘haute finance’, but his website, which is widely-read in the financial world, also has a sound business model guaranteeing its independence.
