Due diligence is of fundamental importance in any commercial activity that allows you to gain a comprehensive understanding of your business partners, competitors, clients and business environment.
Effective due diligence requires extensive and targeted research to identify the validity of representations, reporting and documentation, to locate accounts, and to ascertain reputation, integrity, track records and credit-worthiness of the parties you engage with. You will also have a better understanding of legal compliance and market conditions, allowing you to stay ahead of the competition.
International companies, commercial banks, hedge funds, private equity firms, mutual fund groups, asset managers and law firms all turn to Rouse Investigations to safeguard their companies, clients and transactions.
For example, banks look to provide capital and financing to companies internationally. The reputation of executives, the company and its investors must be ascertained before entering into a contract and transferring capital. Investments and assets need to be identified to ensure legality and determine liability. Financial reporting needs to be examined for accuracy. Complex offshore structures need to be traced, while unexplained vehicles need to be investigated and undisclosed liabilities need to be identified.
The wide-ranging risks and unexpected dangers involved in international commercial transactions necessitate the performance of due diligence in order to protect your organisation, finances and reputation. It will provide you with the confidence to execute your strategy and save you invaluable time, money and effort in the long term.
