red24 and RISQ Worldwide have a dynamic and growing Business Intelligence team, which covers all Due Diligence enquiries, including pre-IPO and Know Your Customer (KYC) checks.
Investigative Due Diligence
We conduct thorough and confidential investigative due diligence into potential business partners and vendors. Drawing upon their considerable research skills, analytical and practical experience, as well as an extensive network of contacts, our consultants identify and validate key information. The information is subsequently analysed and contextualised to provide clients with added value, enabling each client to make more informed decisions with added peace of mind. Each investigation is highly customised to meet the needs of the client, and integrates completely with traditional financial, legal and operational due diligence processes.
Pre-IPO Due Diligence
We offer pre-IPO due diligence services for both publically listed and private companies, with a focus on reputational and integrity due diligence. Many of these projects have been completed without incident. However, some have revealed deal-breaking information, including corrupt and inhumane business practices, hidden political links and other undesirable liabilities.
The experience and expertise of our investigators provides clients with higher levels of transparency, knowledge and insight, which help to safeguard potential investment and reputational risk.
Know Your Customer (KYC) Checks
Governments across the world are putting increasing pressure on financial institutions to comply with anti-money laundering regulations, especially due to the threat of global terrorism funding and the financial support of rogue states. These international regulations generally cover the business activities of banks, building societies, stockbrokers, investment managers, life assurance professionals, as well as any other businesses deemed to be financial institutions.
This extends to legal and accounting practices providing investment advice or related services. Compliance with new laws to reduce the use of global financial systems for money laundering is not optional. Failure to comply brings weighty potential consequences, including criminal prosecution, the loss or restriction of your ability to conduct business, as well as civil litigation and reputational damage.
We provide our Business Intelligence services on a global basis to satisfy all best practice.
