Phil Collins was the part beneficial owner of a profile account at HSBC that bore his name and which was opened in 2000. Seven bank accounts were listed under Collins' shared account, for which the maximum amount in 2006/2007 was $272,191.
Collins' manager told ICIJ reporting partner The Guardian that " a simple Google search will have confirmed to you that Phil Collins does in fact live in Switzerland" where he "continues to live and bank." "It is entirely appropriate for him to have a bank account where he lives," said Collins' manager.
