Why should you perform global integrity due diligence investigations?

Global integrity due diligence investigations provides your business with the critical information it needs to make sound decisions regarding mergers and acquisitions, strategic partnerships, and the selection of vendors, suppliers, and employees. Due Diligence on potential business partners when adding a new vendor or hiring a new employee is vital to confirm the legitimacy and reduce the risks associated with such professional relationships. It will ensure that working with an, i.e. potential trade partner will ultimately achieve your organisation’s strategic and financial goals.

Why perform due Diligence?

To answer questions such as “Does trade partner adhere to (inter)national regulations on anti-corruption and anti-bribery?” or “Is it possible that there is a liability risk in your supply chain?,” performing due Diligence across your business is key to:

  1. Quantify the real risk of a financial transaction, particular if the transaction takes place in a jurisdiction unfamiliar to you
  2. Meet legal compliance and/or get regulatory approval
  3. Assist in accurate decision-making
  4. Identify red flag issues
  5. Provide leverage for business valuation and negotiation
  6. Verify that investment or acquisition criteria have been met
  7. Ensure the other party or company is trustworthy
