Investigative due diligence has a variety of important functions and factors that can mitigate risks for your next business transaction. In order to fully utilise what investigative due diligence has to offer, we need to assess what it is and what it can do for you. When conducting a business arrangement it is important to know what you are getting into. For example, when you buy a car you would check how many miles it has on it, if it is functional, the history of where the car came from and much more. Therefore, when dealing with B2B arrangements the variety of factors that you need to take into account are of much greater magnitude with a higher level of risk potential. So what really is an investigative due diligence report and why do you need one?
The Dot to Dots of Due Diligence
Imagine you are exporting goods abroad and company 'X' wants to buy your products. Due diligence
answers, who is this company 'X'? What is their history? Who are they connected with? And much more. Performing a due diligence investigation shows the care taken before entering into an agreement. This is necessary in order to make informed decisions and access information to assess risks, with the ultimate goal of mitigating any and all potential problems. Investigative reports provide peace of mind and full compliance with Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) obligations. When you want the latest source of information of the highest credibility it is necessary to opt for an investigative due diligence report. The in-depth potential of these reports can filter out information on your potential partner, client or investment regarding connections with Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs), Ultimate Beneficial Ownerships (UBOs), litigation checks, reputational checks and many more. The investigative nature of due diligence reports can sieve out any factors that may create risks and highlight any problems that your business may face when conducting B2B arrangements. Due diligence reports require expert knowledge, reliable sources of information and a vast network of resources in order to extensively cover a specific sector. Due diligence investigators and analysts often require knowledge of several languages, meticulous research skills and a street-wise approach that cannot necessarily be taught in any university. They often need to sift through reams of data and intelligence as well as conducting discreet interviews to find the hidden information that is usually the most revealing.
