Effective risk management starts with knowing who you’re dealing with.
If you’re looking for peace of mind when doing major business in which you need to know everything you possibly can about the backgrounds of the Hedge Fund, Fund of Funds, Fund Manager(s), and Capital Ventures and investments, then FLSS is the right choice for you.
It is imperative that you understand fully the background of international clients, business partners, distributors, agents and consultants – in fact anyone with whom you are doing business – before committing to an offshore deal, business association or foreign investment.
FLSS Advanced Due Diligence (ADD) Reports are a vital tool for international financial institutions and multinational corporations to ensure compliance with ‘best practice’, Anti Money Laundering (AML) regulations, legislation with trans-national reach such as the USA PATRIOT Act and anti-corruption legislation such as the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).
Our ADD Reports provide comprehensive background risk assessments of prospective and existing clients, M&A targets, IPO candidates, business partners and agents, and are designed to help mitigate international business, legal and reputational risks.
FLSS provides discrete services across all markets, whether they be developed or emerging. With dedicated research centers and a large research team, FLSS monitors emerging risks in many languages, covering hundreds of countries and territories worldwide.
Compliance with ever-increasing privacy law and regulation is at the heart of what we do and, with this in mind, we have a strict policy that only publicly available records are accessed and used in the course of our research. However, this does not mean that we only use digitized information. Most public records held outside of the developed economies are not in an electronic format and will be filed on paper in the local language.
We know where to look for the most comprehensive information in emerging markets, as in such areas, ‘publicly accessible’ never equates to ‘easily accessible’. Our global reach, local expertise and round-the-clock research capabilities insure accurate, comprehensive and consistent reporting delivered within exceptional turnaround times. Trusted by many prestigious clients worldwide, FLSS ADD service offers quality, accurate reporting on demand.
FLSS ADD reports provide a comprehensive risk management tool when:
- Conducting pre-merger and acquisition inquiries and pre-IPO due diligence
- Entering into new international joint ventures
- Taking on a new banking or financial client
- Engaging overseas business partners
- Following regulatory compliance and corporate governance best practice.
- Used as an integral part of a consistent and auditable AML and anti-corruption compliance program.
In a competitive global marketplace, most companies are searching for new opportunities in emerging markets. Such locations present fresh challenges – corruption, weak rule of law leading to unenforceable contracts, organised crime, terrorist financing and money laundering are common threats that have to be identified, assessed and mitigated.
FLSS ADD Reports assist our Clients to navigate through unfamiliar markets, assess the background and character of those with whom they do business and remain in compliance with national and international regulation and standards of business ethics and behavior.
