Investigative Due Diligence

Customized investigations providing actionable intelligence to help make critical decisions.

For more than 45 years, investors, financiers and lawyers have relied on Kroll’s investigative due diligence capabilities to answer the non-financial questions good deals are built on. 

  • What are the potential counterparties’ reputations? 
  • What is the extent and nature of their relations with government officials? 
  • Are their representations and disclosures independently verifiable? 
  • Are there any undeclared related-party interests? 
  • What has been the experience of previous business partners or investors?
  • Is the competitive landscape as they describe it?
  • How stable are the regulatory regimes in the jurisdictions in which they operate?
  • How robust is their supply chain and how secure are off-take arrangements?
  • Are there undisclosed beneficiaries?
  • What is the management style of the executive team? How do they approach business culture and governance issues?

We have evolved our methodologies and built on our rich experience to be able to see through the complexity of today’s global and hyper-connected markets and provide clear, actionable intelligence. Our clients rely on us when they need answers, rather than when they just want to tick a box.
