Integrity Due Diligence

Anyone acquiring or investing in new businesses or building relationships with new business partners will be familiar with the need to conduct financial due diligence.

However, as higher risk territories have opened to external investment, companies have also become increasingly aware of the need to gather information on a target’s background, track record and reputation. Such Integrity Due Diligence (IDD) has become a vital part of the due diligence process for these companies, providing them with a detailed insight into a target company and its principals, enabling them to identify and address risk issues before committing themselves to a new relationship.

Who we are

Our Business Intelligence Services team, which has conducted hundreds of IDD assignments over the past decade, has a unique insight into the key risks associated with a wide range of sectors and jurisdictions around the world. These include emerging and newly emerged markets.

What we do

Working to a proven methodology with strict quality control procedures, our IDD is conducted using a combination of public record research, application of our existing in-depth knowledge, and gathering information through our network of trusted sources.

How we can help

The scope of each project is tailored to focus on our client’s key concerns, however our BIS teams typically investigate a target’s:

  • Business background;
  • Activities;
  • Reputation;
  • Source of initial capital;
  • Political connections (and use thereof); and
  • Involvement in ‘red flag’ issues (such as bribery & corruption).

While we regularly conduct IDD work as a standalone project for clients, we also frequently work alongside other service offerings from Deloitte, including:
