Need to conduct deeper investigations into high risk individuals or organisations? Global Investigations provides professional enhanced due diligence services to uncover hidden risks. Our private investigators go beyond basic background checks to leave no stone unturned.


Who Might Need Enhanced Due Diligence?

Enhanced due diligence is necessary when assessing high risk candidates in industries like:

> Financial Services – Senior executives, traders, advisors and other personnel in banking, asset management, private equity, and other financial sectors.

> Public Companies – Board members, C-suite executives, founders and major investors in publicly traded companies.

> Politics & Government – Candidates for public office, senior civil servants, diplomats, judges, and more.

> Technology – Key decision makers at firms dealing with sensitive user data, infrastructure, AI ethics, and other critical areas.

> Defence & Security – Leadership of contractors providing sensitive services to police, military, intelligence agencies and related entities.

Our enhanced checks minimise legal, financial, ethical and reputational risks when partnering with such individuals and organisations.


How Does Enhanced Due Diligence Work?

Our expert investigators utilise legal methods to build an extensive profile, including:

> Deep Background Research – Thorough document searches, database checks, credential verification, and more.

> Expansive Interviews – In-depth discussions with the individual, associates, former colleagues and other contacts.

> Social Media Audits – Comprehensive analysis of current and historical social accounts and activity.

> Asset InvestigationTracking finances, properties, investments and other holdings globally.

> Court Record Checks – Reviewing legal filings, judgments, bankruptcies and other cases globally.

> Surveillance Monitoring – Discreetly observing movements and activities firsthand where necessary.

We correlate data from myriad sources to uncover inconsistencies, red flags and previously unknown information. Our insights identify true risks.


Our Enhanced Due Diligence Procedures

Before we undertake the checks, we would clarify the requirements of the work and provide an accurate estimate on price and duration for each enquiry. For individual checks, we would agree on the defining elements.  Some of these elements are listed below; some will not be relevant for the business or the industry in view.

> How many heads we are investigating personally and to what extent you would like us to go to

 > Whether we are required to make visits to any addresses or premises, either in a covert way or pre-planned

> The speed of the enquiry, do you have any time constraints?

> Inappropriate manager interests, including all potential self-dealing, nepotism and related party transactions

> All regulated PEP checks on all regulated parties

> Sanction checking worldwide

> Source of wealth confirmations and validations

> Misrepresentation on CVs and inaccurate descriptions of professional employment

> Full trading analysis and if required covert unannounced visits and audits

> All directorships and share involvements & business records and trading relationships

> Criminal or civil litigation or adverse regulatory actions

> Where the people or previous checks are based, how much of the work will be undertaken in the UK, are there any other foreign domiciles to check?

We also undertake many related enquiries in the sector like KYC searches, M & A led enquiry’s and CV and resume checks as well, having – as our name would suggest – a global reach and coverage and employing many bilingual agents at the company to help with any language issues.

Enhanced Due Diligence FAQs

Our licensed investigators use legal methods like surveillance, interviews, public records access, database searches, computer forensics, online profiling and more. We correlate data from myriad sources to uncover hidden risks.

Deeper insights into professional conduct, legal issues, judgements, bankruptcies, tax problems, questionable affiliations, conflicts of interest, social media activity and other red flags that basic vetting misses.

Financial services, defence contracting, technology, pharmaceuticals, public infrastructure, transportation, crypto/blockchain sectors and other high-risk industries often necessitate enhanced vetting of key decision makers.

It goes much further than a basic background check to leave no stone unturned. The depth of research across more areas is vastly greater, as are verification processes, analysis and boots-on-the-ground investigations where needed.

Our team of licensed, expert private investigators conduct all enhanced due diligence. We have experience handling sensitive investigations across sectors globally while maintaining strict discretion. Trust our team to uncover the full truth.
