Conduct research and analysis of those who you are planning to do business within developed and emerging markets to help identify and mitigate economic and reputational risk.
We can generate reports to evaluate potential investments and business partners, and meet regulatory compliance requirements.
In particular, we are specialized in all aspects of money laundering prevention and economic fraud.
However, due diligence, while being essential, is simply not enough in a competitive environment, especially the high-risk or opaque potential clients or partners. Identifying money laundering schemes in today’s world requires real expertise: mixing conventional techniques with a high-level intelligence approach is a guaranty against unexpected surprises.
We do not rely on databases and computer-based sources alone. These sources are often incomplete or outdated. As such, we conduct interviews with human sources and usually perform an onsite visit in order to analyze the facts and information to fully identify risks.
