Business Intelligence Service
Deloitte Business Intelligence Services provide an in-depth insight into the background, track record and reputation of a potential target or business partner (corporation or individual), as well as their involvement in "red flag" issues such as fraud, money laundering, bribery/corruption, tax evasion, other criminal records and links to organised crime.
Business Intelligence for the client
Globalization is opening up more and more opportunities in overseas markets, whether through acquisitions or relationships with joint venture partners, distributors, licensees, suppliers, customers/clients, agents or other third parties. While these new opportunities can be extremely lucrative, they can also give rise to risks, which have been compounded by an increase in legislation and regulation (such as that relating to corruption and money laundering), requiring companies to better understand the entities and individuals with which they are doing business.
With a global network, we are able to provide our clients with key information on third parties (gathered through both public records and outside sources), thereby assisting them to identify and address these risks (and thus avoid financial loss, reputational damage and regulatory/criminal sanctions). We are also able to gather information and intelligence to assist clients in situations of commercial dispute.
Integrity Due Diligence
Deloitte Forensic Services Team complement the financial due diligence process by providing an in-depth insight into the background, track record and reputation of a potential target or business partner, as well as their political connections (and use thereof) and involvement in ‘red flag’ issues (such as fraud, money laundering, bribery/corruption, tax evasion, and links to organized crime).
Country Risk Assessments
We can help clients understand new geographical markets they are entering and assess and manage the risks presented by them. Tailored to address the specific sector and jurisdiction in question, our work might examine the relevant business, government and regulatory environments, the judicial system, and local political and legal trends.
