Asset Tracing

Start solving my problem

So many companies make the mistake of taking an individual or company to court before doing their proper research. It is wrong to assume the court’s decision will always fall in your favour, even if you believe your case is too strong to lose. It is much better to ensure you know the status of the subject you wish to take to court, before starting court proceedings. That’s why asset tracing for fraud is so important.

Here at Global Investigations, we can provide professional asset tracing services for businesses and individuals in the UK and across the world. Our experienced asset tracing team can work with you identify personal assets and corporate assets hidden anywhere in the world.

Knowing what assets the subject in question has will enable you to see if they are worth suing or not. This essential research will ensure you do not lose a lot of money pursuing a pointless case.

How Asset Tracing Can Help You?

We offer extremely effective asset tracking services to search and locate hidden assets. This private investigation service is offered throughout the UK and overseas. We always work within the parameters you have set us and only ever use legitimate avenues to collect our information. This means everything we find can be legally submitted in court and will serve as evidence to substantiate any claim you make.

For example, if you are involved in divorce proceedings, you may believe your partner is not revealing all of their assets. You have a right to know the truth and we can help you uncover their fraud with our Tracking My Partner service. As a detective agency, we will search and attempt to uncover any assets, such as property investments and any company directorships and shares.

All of our searches can be carried out in the UK and internationally. We are also fortunate enough to have developed many strong relationships with agents overseas. These relationships are of huge benefit to us and more often than not enable us to uncover assets that have been extremely well-hidden in overseas properties and businesses.

Assets to Be Presented to the Courts

More often than not, clients will require our information to assist them in resolving a financial settlement. We take great care to ensure all evidence collected and reports produced are of a high standard and can be legally submitted to the courts as evidence. All the evidence we collate is done so in a timely fashion and, of course, will always be genuine and legally obtained.

Asset searches include but are not limited to:

  • Property and ownership in the UK and most overseas countries (where name searches are possible)
  • Shares; in the UK and overseas
  • Stock; machinery and equipment (normally in relation to a business)
  • All boats and marine purchases
  • Vehicles; any related finance and ownership of them
  • Businesses; All those undeclared in the UK and overseas
  • Undeclared banking and accounts
  • Horse ownership.

Cost for Asset Tracing

These will always be agreed from the outset. We always endeavour to understand your exact situation and will work according to the parameters and budget you set. We are also happy for you to offer us guidance and advice as you see fit and will always work in the strictest confidence so you can be assured we are a detective agency you can trust.

Our success rate in asset tracing for fraud is very high and we take great pride in being able to uncover the real wealth of our clients’ targets. Please note that each case is unique, and we ask our clients to appreciate that we simply won’t be able to find what isn’t there. However, trust that if an asset from fraud or otherwise is being hidden, we will find it.

Asset Tracing FAQs

What information do you need to complete an asset search?

The more information you can provide the better! We do require the full name of the subject and their current residential address to proceed with a pre-sue report and provide a comprehensive service to trace assets around the world. In cases where our clients do not have a current address, we may be required to undertake a trace prior to the pre-sue report.

How long do your pre-sue reports take to complete?

We offer a range of pre-sure reports that vary from basic searches to in-depth, comprehensive checks. Our basic searches take up to 20 working days while our in-depth searches can take up to 30 working days. We of course will try to work within any time constraints you may have, and we also offer an expedited service for an additional fee.

If locating assets on a couple, do we have to do two investigations?

Each case is different, and our trained advisors will be able to assess upon your initial consultation if one or two investigations are needed. If there may be assets in both subjects’ names, we would advise two separate checks to be completed or we can do a bespoke search that would look at both subjects together.

Our asset tracking services are the most effective way of identifying international assets and related party transactions for individuals, couples and businesses of all kinds.

Can I find out how much a business is earning?

We offer comprehensive business checks (sometimes known as due diligence) which can investigate the earnings of a Limited Company. Our business checks can not only assess a company’s filing information but look into profit and loss, other LTD company associations, whether a business owns property, intellectual property ownership and much more.

Our in-depth searches can give a comprehensive overview of not only what a business is earning, but whether they have other streams of income. International Business Checks can vary slightly depending on the country, but our agents abroad are able to gather significant information regarding a limited company and its worth.

Are your in-depth pre-sue reports undertaken only in the UK? Can you do it in Ireland?

Global Investigations can investigate and locate assets in most countries including Ireland. However, in each country the searches we are able to perform may vary slightly according to the laws and access specific to that country. We encourage you to call us to discuss your needs with one of our experienced team members.

Can you find personal bank details?

In the UK, bank and mortgage account searching can only be undertaken in compliance with UK Courts and the Data Protection Act 2018.

This is for subjects who are being either non-responsive or obstructing the Courts or Police in revealing assets. This search can assist us in the detection of their personal assets and is a highly privileged search at financial institutions to reveal entities such as bank accounts and mortgage accounts.

Please see our information sheet/page on Personal Data Credit Report searches for more information. There may be countries abroad in which we are able to locate bank accounts if we can meet the countries requirements for this information.

How do forensic accountants help with asset tracing?

When it comes to tracing assets, or even recovering assets, our team of private investigators and forensic accounting team work together to identify property, bank accounts and more. Even if the target has attempted to conceal assets, such as bank accounts, or other assets, our international network of investigators and legal team will identify and, where necessary, help you to recover these assets.
