Leveraging open source and proprietary databases, our CIS investigators work closely with multi-national clients to help them identify and minimise risk and make critical decisions with confidence.

Clients turn to us for our in-depth experience and highly specialised 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.

Our ability to leverage the 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.
