Business Intelligence Services

Helping clients identify potential risks

If you’re looking to expand your company through a third-party relationship, investment or a transaction, you need accurate information about these entities, especially the potential risks. That’s where Deloitte business intelligence services come in. Through our in-depth experience and global network, due diligence and advanced technology, we can help you minimize risk, so critical decisions can be made with confidence.

How we can help

With a deep understanding of the threat landscape, Business Intelligence Services (BIS) works closely with clients on important matters, like transactions, to help them minimize risk and make critical decisions with confidence. Businesses looking to expand their footprint through a transaction, third-party relationship, or investment, need accurate information about these entities and their executives—and the potential risks that they may present. Clients turn to us for our in-depth experience and highly specialized skills in the areas of due diligence and investigation, as well as for our use of advanced technology, to help them gain deeper insights and navigate successful outcomes.

Driving our success is our breadth and depth. Our highly trained investigators and intelligence specialists have extensive experience in due diligence, litigation support, and FCPA, fraud, bribery, and other investigations. Their ability to leverage our Deloitte global network allows us to quickly and effectively gather background information and business intelligence virtually anywhere in the world in a cost-effective manner, including those jurisdictions where public records are sparse. Our work often supports classified information and uses methodology and sources unavailable to the general public to provide our clients in-depth information and analysis.

If fraud is suspected, companies often require in-depth background investigations to unravel the problem. We help our clients get ahead of the issues, performing background investigations of parties suspected of wrongdoing, searches for conflicts of interest and undisclosed business affiliations, or research into whether parties are living beyond their means. As part of our litigation support services, we assist clients by investigating opposing parties and their experts, helping find facts relevant to claims and defenses, and identifying and locating witnesses, while helping our clients transform unpredictable events into opportunities for resilience and long-term advantage.
