In this March 2, 2016 photo, people are reflected in a glass displaying a poster featuring a 100 dollars Hong Kong colonial bank note in Hong Kong. Hong Kong has emerged as a major design center for offshore vehicles, a place brimming with people expert at packaging and protecting wealth. The back pages of newspapers here teem with advertisements for corporate formation companies, one-stop shops promising fast bank account opening, corporate compliance, tax and accountancy services. Offshore vehicles are used to minimize tax, mitigate political risk, and circumvent onerous regulations in China. And they are completely legal. (AP Photo/Kin Cheung)
