DUE DILIGENCE AND INVESTIGATIONS

Compliance and legal risks are significant to your company’s daily business operations. In recent years, these risks have become a top priority for financial organisations who seek to grow in a progressively challenging business environment, whilst dealing with an increasingly complex regulatory environment. New regulatory initiatives are impacting firms on a local and international level.

Organisations are subject to growing scrutiny and oversight and are under pressure to demonstrate adequate control over operational, financial and regulatory risks.

Our team of experts at FAI are able to assist your company in this changing landscape and offer high quality advice on a broad range of regulatory issues. We seek to understand your business and provide you with practical and cost-effective solutions, through our responsive and flexible approach.

WHAT FAI CAN DO:

Due Diligence Reporting

FAI undertakes enhanced due diligence exercises and comprehensive reviews of business, legal and financial affairs with the aim of assisting our clients in making informed decisions, through our assessment of business proposals.

We believe it is important for you to know about the risks and opportunities of your potential investment. Our approach to due diligence allows us to focus on those matters which concern you most and which may have an impact on your negotiating position. Due diligence reports can include investigation into a target company’s qualifications, operating and financial status, government relations and adverse records, as well as into the backgrounds of shareholders and senior management.

With our extensive experience in conducting due diligence assessments, FAI is further able to assist firms in the implementation of their own internal due diligence processes, training staff to be able to assess all business relationships, thereby embedding a culture of thoroughness and diligence into your organisation.

Investigations

Responding quickly and efficiently to alleged or suspected fraud, misconduct or other improprieties is critical to all financial organisations. Integrity and transparency are key components to any business wishing to succeed, and such instances may undermine or cause irrevocable damage to a firm’s reputation.

FAI conducts a range of inquiries for firms that may lack the resources or skills to competently conduct a prompt, cost effective and objective investigation in house. Our team is here to provide your company the support it needs by utilising our experience into matters such as employee misconduct, whether related to bribery, corruption, fraud or theft, and violations of laws, regulations and internal policies.

You will be able to coordinate with independent and impartial professionals, who can evaluate the implications of such investigations, identifying and recommending appropriate remedial actions.
