Investigative Due Diligence

Exposing hidden risk, delivering business intelligence and supporting confident decisions.

Investigative due diligence is an essential service for organisations and investors concerned about the unknown dimensions of a potential acquisition, investment or business relationship.

Our Due Diligence Service

Our aim is to provide clients with the vital intelligence necessary to expose hidden risks and determine whether to proceed, completely withdraw or renegotiate based on any adverse findings.

UK Security Services Investigations Team goes much deeper than routine due diligence. Using a variety of investigative methods, both overt and covert, our investigations can uncover and forewarn you of fraud and financial irregularity, conflicts of interest, hidden agendas, pending litigation, rumoured defections and staff despondency prior to contractual commitment.

The due diligence process is likely to cover:

  • The business's past and forecast financial performance
  • Accounts
  • Share dealing and ownership
  • Directors and board activities and background
  • Valuation of property and other assets
  • Legal and tax compliance
  • Outstanding legal action against the business and legal history
  • Major customer contracts
  • Intellectual property protection
  • Financial profile and analysis
  • On & off shore investigations
  • Investigating the links, associations and activities

Legal Governance and Compliance

Since the introduction of the Sarbanes–Oxley Act of 2002 there has been a stringent legal requirement for all companies and financial institutions to combat money laundering and other financial crimes.

Corporate governance

Under UK law a company director must be able to demonstrate to a Court that he or she ensured that all effort was made in carrying out due diligence and in compliance with the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002, Terrorism Act 2000 and Money Laundering Regulations 2007.

Know Your Customer

All companies are required by law to ensure that they have carried out full investigations in to who their client is and manage the situation during all stages of the business relationship.

On-going due diligence and regular checks of clients can and does protect your company and mitigate risks.
