    FILE- A general view over Tower Bridge and the River Thames in London, England where the Kleptocracy Tour aims to shed light on where the world's rich and powerful stash their billions.

    As British Prime Minister David Cameron gathered world leaders in London Thursday for a summit aimed at cracking down on corruption, investigative journalists, activists and authors are conducting group tours through the city to shed a light on where the world's rich and powerful stash their billions.

    Welcome to the Kleptocracy Tour.

    Organized by anti-corruption campaigner Roman Borisovich, the tour shines a light on how money routed through secret off-shore accounts are then laundered through London’s booming property market.
