Investigation Services

Deloitte Cayman Islands - Empowering clients to act quickly and confidently in the face of regulatory concerns and actions, or sensitive internal investigations into fraud, corruption and misconduct.


A frequent outcome of forensic investigations is the need to recover stolen or otherwise misappropriated assets. Electronic systems have led to a global increase in misappropriation of funds; sophisticated criminals use more and more complex financial vehicles to conceal stolen assets. We focus on identifying quickly where the funds or assets have gone and devising strategies to maximise rapid recovery.

We have deep experience of asset recovery across the globe, and have successfully recovered assets or value for our clients. Our experience in asset recovery extends to cash, marine vessels, real property, bearer securities, aircraft, corporate entities and complex financial instruments. Our investigatory, forensic and analytic resources combined with our deep knowledge of offshore jurisdictions allow us to deploy powerful and effective strategies to identify and recover assets. We work with legal professionals to locate, identify and freeze stolen assets, tracing the transaction path from origin to destination.

Deloitte’s Investigations specialists possess the financial acumen, forensic accounting and investigatory skills, and technological know-how to conduct effective corporate investigations spanning many levels of scope and complexity. We serve multinational entities, large national enterprises, and fast-growing businesses, both publicly and privately held, across numerous industries. Our clients draw on our skills to help conduct independent internal investigations, to support counsel in defending the company or individual(s) falling under scrutiny of government investigators and to work with attorneys to minimise fraud impact and to recover misappropriated assets. 

We work with our clients to develop a phased investigative approach to quickly ascertain foundational facts and identify critical issues, while maximising overall project efficiency and cost-effectiveness. During the course of an investigation we:

  • Assess the issues in the context of the business environment in which the company operates, its financial condition and its previously reported financial results
  • Obtain relevant materials, including helping to preserve electronic information that can later be searched using forensic techniques
  • Conduct informational briefings with company employees with specific knowledge of the transactions and participate in interviews with counsel
  • Analyze and understand the system of internal controls to assess whether they fostered or hindered the production of reliable accounting information
