Our enhanced due diligence does not entail a review of financial records with an assessment of profitability for acquiring an interest in a particular entity. Rather, we focus on the limited scope of identifying risks associated with FCPA exposure, violations of the U.K. Anti-Bribery Act of 2010, embezzlement, and a lack of internal controls. Our knowledge of the country's culture and business practices is invaluable in this regard.
To ensure we get all the local knowledge possible, we use a teaming approach, drawing upon the well-established expertise and integrity of India-based consulting companies, Compliance Consulting Services, Pvt. Ltd., and FBS India, Pvt. Ltd. This is a great way to complete on-the-ground investigation and analysis of individuals and corporations.
We use a sophisticated link analysis methodology to support our inquiries. Our comprehensive inquiries enable our team to provide a full and transparent view of the risks associated with investing in a particular entity or retaining a particular third party agent. Our integrity and internal controls ensure that the client is receiving an unbiased assessment that is not influenced by external conditions or persons.
An enhanced due diligence analysis not only provides the acquiring entity insight into their decision, it also acts as a mitigating factor in any subsequent charging decision by the U.S. Department of Justice in the event of undetected misconduct of the target entity.
