Whether you are involved in long-term debt or equity investments, managing an IPO or providing a portfolio of insurance coverage, you can rely on us for due diligence, accurate and timely analysis, and insightful forecasts. For corporations we provide a solid assessment of the risks when raising capital or taking out insurance to support new ventures.

 

Opportunities and risks

With new M&A opportunities it is essential to understand the full range of business risks that can impact your targets' long-term value – from possible reputational concerns surrounding counterparties to significant operational issues or political risks. We also help sellers and their advisers articulate their risk profile in objective terms.
 

Due diligence

We forecast risks, whenever possible, for the full duration of your investment, as well as providing intelligence and analysis on counterparties and critical stakeholders. We can go well beyond traditional standards for due diligence through reviews of the compliance, risk management and governance programmes in target organisations, as part of the pre- or post-transaction process.
 

Cyber security assessments

An increasingly critical aspect of due diligence is knowing the level of cyber security in the organisation and third parties. Regulation around data use and storage is becoming more rigorous and disparate, and the risks to value and reputation of data loss ever greater.
 

Contested bid and proxy battles

Using our expertise in the collection and analysis of layered information we provide you with key intelligence regarding the financial capability of bidders, and the financial profile and motivations of management, shareholders and stakeholders.

Our consultants efficiently identify misrepresentations, conflicts of interest and omissions of facts. They reveal undisclosed information that could impact a target or acquirer, such as a history of value creation or destruction, criminal convictions, regulatory violations and problematic business associations.
