Benjamin is an Associate Director based in New Delhi and supports Control Risks’ due diligence and business intelligence practice for South Asia. He has previously worked at the company’s offices in Sao Paulo and London.

Benjamin has almost 15 years of experience in managing and conducting complex business intelligence, fraud, asset-tracing and problem-solving investigations in emerging markets. He regularly works on challenging projects that require the utmost attention to detail, “out-of-the-box” thinking, and thorough investigation in order to provide clients with a full understanding of the risks they face in their business transactions and operations in the region.

 

His work at Control Risks has included leading and managing several projects, such as:
  • A major pre-acquisition due diligence and anti-corruption audit, involving site visits and interviews with key personnel, reviews of policies and procedures, and enquiries into the subject company’s reputation and—considering the sensitivities of corruption in public tenders and concessions, together with how appropriate licenses had been obtained—its dealings with local public officials. 
  • A large-scale conflict of interest, internal fraud and corruption investigation that included public-record research and discreet source enquiries, document and transaction reviews and testing, and interviews with relevant individuals associated to the matter. 
  • Several compliance-driven due diligence investigations for multi-billion-dollar mergers and acquisitions. Investigations were designed to support clients in understanding the risks they face in doing business in the region, and to provide them with insight into the background, reputation, and integrity of the targets of the acquisitions. 
     

Before joining Control Risks, Benjamin worked at a London-based creative media agency that develops online educational projects for the public and private sector. Benjamin has lived and worked in England, China, Brazil, and India. He speaks native English, fluent Portuguese and basic Spanish. He obtained an MA in International Relations from the University of St. Andrews.
