REPUTATIONAL DUE DILIGENCE

REPUTATIONAL DUE DILIGENCE

Mitigating risk can be as simple as understanding the reputations of the individuals or companies your firm engages, particularly when it comes to identifying “red flags” associated with a new business initiative. Nevertheless, with an overwhelming number of database resources; a lack of quality data in foreign markets; and competing pressures from corporate and compliance leaders, knowing where to start your due diligence efforts can seem like half the battle.

Use Cases:

Leveraging an array of data resources, foreign language expertise, and industry-leading collection tools, our reports highlight key information about companies and their affiliates so you can conduct business with confidence. Whether you’re a Chief Compliance Officer, member of the General Counsel’s Office, part of the Corporate Development Office, or head of Public Relations for your organization, we help you ensure the integrity of your name is protected.

Case Study

The Situation

Prior to the opening of a new franchise, an international retail chain wanted to understand any reputational risks associated with a potential franchise owner. The franchisee lived in Western Europe and managed numerous other businesses.

The Solution

Country-specific language searches yielded media articles discussing fraudulent activities at a company owned by the subject. As these articles did not mention the subject by name, we conducted in-country research through our international network of investigators to uncover further information. Official records indicated that the subject had been sanctioned by a court for fraudulent activities.

The Significance

Due to Prescient’s analysis, the client decided against a franchisee relationship with the subject and avoided reputational and financial damage.
