Financial due diligence rarely uncovers the complete picture of any counterparty, making qualitative analysis of companies, individuals and management teams an essential part of any transaction. Regulatory pressures and corporate governance best practice mean that it is now critical to examine and assess the relationships your business has with individuals or corporate entities. Billiter’s Enhanced Due Diligence reports provide critical insight into the reputations and backgrounds of distributors, agents, vendors, acquisition targets or joint venture partners, highlighting any potential reputational, regulatory and commercial risks.
Every business is different and has its own unique due diligence requirements. Our professionals work with each of our clients to provide tailored reporting solutions to fit the sector, jurisdictions and the regulatory risks each client faces. Billiter’s due diligence reports address a range of client objectives, from quickly highlighting Red Flag issues to Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD), providing highly detailed analysis of the background of a business and its ownership prior to acquisition or a new relationship.
Our Due Diligence forms a crucial part of our clients’ robust Counter Terrorist Financing (CTF) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) compliance programmes. They also assist clients in fulfilling their legal obligations to undertake due diligence required by anti-corruption and bribery laws through to local rules-based regimes such as the London Stock Exchange’s AIM Rules for Nominated Advisers. Our research helps clients minimise their risk exposure to counterparties by highlighting potentially serious compliance issues including association with foreign public officials, Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs), State controlled companies, or those involved in serious litigation, regulatory breaches or sanctioned activities.
By discreetly sourcing and expertly analysing critical information from across the globe, Billiter’s due diligence reports enable our clients to understand the potential risk and operate with confidence.
