About Us

Prescient is a due diligence, investigations, cyber and intelligence firm that helps people make better business decisions.

Our Story

Founded in 2008, Prescient now specializes in Due Diligence, Investigations, Cyber, and Intelligence programs for the commercial sector.  Over time we’ve been able to position our experience in federal and domestic intelligence services into the corporate environment providing unmatched service for our clients.

We’ve ventured into financial compliance related due diligence and completed over 8,500 anti-money laundering CDD and EDD reports over a two-year period.  This allowed us to expand our Chicago office and create an office in Dublin, Ireland. As we found success in the compliance space, today, Prescient has evolved into the four practice areas of due diligence, investigations, cyber and intelligence.

Prescient’s headquarters is in Chicago, IL. We also have a major office located in Dublin, Ireland, known as Ashtree Risk Group.

Service Mentality: The Right People. The Best Methods. The Bottom Line.

What distinguishes one due diligence and investigations firm from another? A service mentality drawn from experience working in and for the Domestic and Foreign Intelligence Community. At Prescient our focus is on the people we serve. We measure success not by the number of reports produced, but by how well our solutions address and answer the specific concerns of our clients. We accomplish this by employing some of the brightest professionals in our fields of focus.

Our Process: Intelligence Community-Based Research and Analysis

Our company got its start as an intelligence and national security contractor serving U.S. federal customers. This experience combined with our people’s own history in government, law enforcement, and national security provided us the background needed to apply Intelligence Community best practices to our own proprietary research and analysis process. This advantage allows us to strengthen the quality of our research and provide our clients with detailed reports exceeding industry standards.
