Potentially on fund or hedge managers
Our global expertise and willingness to achieve investment and hedge industry checks is instrumental to our client’s satisfaction.
We are conducting checks all over the world and especially in America and the Middle East. Our partners in those countries are combining with our efforts to ensure our clients feel justified with the work we undertake and will benefit long after our searches have been completed.
Checks are also completed for the UK industry and checks such as trading and clearance records coupled with in-depth disciplinary files are undertaken. Our international experience and expertise in countries far and wide helps us to obtain the records swiftly and accurately and our work can be organised with signed permission forms or without depending on the case.
Our flexibility with contracts and disclaimers is also readily evident as our clients’ needs and security are paramount to all our checks.
We have revealed many problem cases over the years and although many of the checks we have found can be and should be for honest, respectable and candid people we can also find major discrepancies amongst the information we look to confirm.
An investment firm we evaluated had 10 Federal Civil suits against them for misleading investors. They won control of the said company by promising the shareholders they would either buy out their stock or sell the company but what they really did was to appoint themselves to the Board of Directors, approve huge salaries for themselves and then say they could not sell the company because of the cost of the pay-outs to senior executives.
We advised our client that this was a first and a scenario we thought best to avoid. Would you knowingly hire this company to trade on your accounts today?
In other checks we have found dishonesty and bankruptcy, champagne lifestyles on meagre budgets and many unrecorded Liens or County Court Judgements that were revealed, We have also found minor and severe drug convictions in addition to the more common "white-collar" crime of insider trading, stock price manipulations, yield burning, and fraud on these same individuals.
Our Investigators will trawl through court filings and public databases, employment records and press and media houses such as LexisNexis and Factiva. They will also interview former employees to obtain information on Managers that may raise concerns, Rest assured, if you employ us to do your checks then the rest can be left to us.
