Green Park tube, Mayfair
You will know it as the most expensive spot on the Monopoly board. But did you know that this upmarket area of west London has the highest concentration of hedge funds and private equity firms in Europe?
This tour takes you into the mysterious world of ‘shadow banking’ and shows the links between unregulated finance and our politics: from enigmatic Tory funders to Mitt Romney’s private equity firm, from ‘The Office of Tony Blair’ to the company which lists ex-presidents and prime ministers on its payroll. Includes a visit to ‘hedge fund alley’ – not for the faint-hearted…
Tours start outside Green Park tube and last two hours. For more info, visit www.occupytours.org.
