Financial Investigations

Insiders are the single biggest threat to corporate assets and individuals’ private wealth. Privately held businesses and multinational, public corporations face risks from insiders with privileges as well as those with responsibilities that include purchasing, treasury and the management of books and records. Employees with supply chain oversight present elevated bribery risk.

External risk is very real too, and our forensic, cyber and investigative services have provided resolution to those who have had their data breached, assets stolen or royalties underreported, sometimes with the help of an insider. Kroll’s financial investigation teams assist clients and their counsel with any and all phases of an investigation, from the initial detection of suspicious activity right through to resolution, whether the end result is restitution, litigation, an insurance claim or referral to the appropriate law enforcement agency.

Kroll undertakes financial investigations of misconduct, bribery and corruption, as well as assessments of financial transactions, accounting irregularities, and regulatory and compliance issues on behalf of publicly and closely held companies, private equity firms, government agencies, municipalities, NGOs and high net worth individuals.

Our areas of expertise include:

Kroll’s multidisciplinary, international teams have helped clients understand their vulnerabilities in the toughest of circumstances, from reconstructing complex transactions after the failure and collapse of banks to the garden variety vendor fraud. We advise clients on best practice and procedures to ensure that future fraudulent incidents are minimized.
