Tailored scope

No enhanced due diligence investigation is ever the same. That's why every request is assigned a Case Manager who will engage with you to fully understand your needs and situation, in order to recommend the most appropriate and cost-effective course of action. 

Once the scope is verified, an investigation will begin with one of our 11 global research teams, assigned based on language and geographical requirements.

Robust research

Our research is carried out in two stages - starting with preliminary research to ensure the subject of the report can be identified, and so we can assess the time required for the assignment based on public profile information. This means we can provide you with full transparency around project delivery.

We then follow up with a detailed investigation carried out by our experienced bi- or tri-lingual team of analysts, leveraging our comprehensive network of sources and original insights not available through the public domain (provided that the applicable law permits). We’re committed to principles of integrity and accountability, so we only use ethical and non-intrusive research methods, and we never misrepresent our activities.

Quality assurance

We know how important it is to have information you can trust and act upon, so research quality is paramount to our service. All reports and research are reviewed and analysed at multiple stages, including by a dedicated Research Manager, before being delivered to our customers.

In addition, we have a dedicated risk and control team performing regular audits of the service and external accreditation to ISAE 3000 standard by PwC.
