An Asset Manager requested background due diligence on a private equity investor operating in a new space for a sense of their reputation and track record. CRI pieced together their career history in the UK, US and Eastern Europe and uncovered employment tribunals, negative coverage in local media and content posted to blogs that together demonstrated a serious cause for concern.

Comprehensive, multi-jurisdictional due diligence - 2021

Due Diligence

This may be compliance-driven or form part of a more specific enquiry that seeks to provide a layer of comfort before proceeding on a deal.

From background screening to complex investigations, we employ the same rigorous, analytical approach to information gathering.

We vet senior management appointees and frequently conduct IPO due diligence covering multiple board members, often in multiple jurisdictions and under significant time constraints.

Risk & Compliance

We assist in-house compliance teams with Know Your Customer (KYC) checks on individuals and companies to ensure the information they have provided can be verified, and to assess exposure according to FCPA and UKBA legislation.

We also work closely with Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD) and Investigative Due Diligence (IDD) teams providing comprehensive and exhaustive public record research and human source intelligence.
