About the Author

Dan McCrum is a member of the Financial Times investigations team. His reporting on Wirecard has been recognised with prizes from the London Press Club, the Society of Editors, the New York Financial Writers' Association, the Overseas Press Club, and the Gerald Loeb awards. He was also awarded the Ludwig Erhard Prize for economic journalism, a Reporters Forum Reporterpreis and a special award by the Helmut Schmidt prize jury for investigative journalism. In 2020, he was named Journalist of the Year at the British Journalism Awards.


Dan McCrum's deep dive into Wirecard was the financial investigation of the decade. Money Men tells the story from inside Wirecard's headquarters with entertaining drama and verve, but it also unspools the high-stakes reporting process McCrum and his colleagues carried out at the Financial Times against the odds. It instantly enters the canon of great financial crime books. -- Bradley Hope, co-author of New York Times bestseller Billion Dollar Whale
A milestone in the history of investigative journalism. -- Olaf Scholz, Chancellor of Germany, awarding the Reporters Forum Reporterpreis
Money Men is a rip-roaring ride into the underworld of the global economy. Dan McCrum is a proper reporter: there is no threat, con trick or hangover that will stand in his way. In today's pandemic of lies, courageous journalism like this is the medicine. -- Tom Burgis, Sunday Times bestselling author of Kleptopia
This behind-the-scenes look into the years of work and the persistence that was required to topple Wirecard is nothing short of incredible. * AltFi *
A fantastic book. Think of Dan as a bespectacled James Bond with a keyboard instead of a gun. * Steve Clapham, author of The Smart Money Method *
Wirecard might still be one of Europe's most feted tech firms, were it not for a small band of sceptics - including Dan McCrum... Wirecard fought back viciously and dirtily ... Money Men should be required reading for investors and financial regulators. It is a compelling case study of a seemingly eternal truth: when a business is built on lies, there are always clues. -- A Book of the Year * Economist *
Book of the week * MoneyWeek *
The culmination of years of careful investigative work... A gripping tale. * Evening Standard *
A thrilling, head-spinning book... Money Men hugely rewards the reader when you get the scoop alongside McCrum - you are close to punching the air... A fine testament to the importance of quality journalism. * Irish Times *
The best book I read this year was Money Men... It reads like a thriller as he painstakingly exposes the tissue of lies, false accounting and mythical acquisitions that lie behind the company's respectable facade... Brilliant stuff. -- Books of the Year * The Tablet *
Well worth your time -- Richard Fletcher * The Times *
A fraud so audacious it took the company's auditor, Ernst & Young, years to believe it... McCrum's account may read like a crime drama, but really it is a testament to old-school reporting... At a time when social media is increasingly causing facts to be regarded as beside the point, it is a reminder that the truth is always worth chasing. * New Statesman *
McCrum was more responsible than anyone else for the exposure and eventual collapse of the hugely fraudulent payment company... A cross between the Enron scandal and Rosemary's Baby. -- John Lanchester * London Review of Books *
What a wild ride! Going head to head with powerful executives, their teams of lawyers and intelligence operatives, Dan McCrum has uncovered one of the biggest economic scandals in Europe. Money Men reads like a thriller, but it's all true. -- Frederik Obermaier, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and co-author of The Panama Papers
Money Men is a rollercoaster read that reveals everything that's wrong with our financial system. Dan McCrum and his colleagues at the FT deserve medals for their tenacious battle to expose the dark heart of Wirecard - the enormous fraud and money laundering machine with shadowy ties. -- Catherine Belton, author of Putin's People
