What is Investigative Due Diligence?
Investigative due diligence (also called a due diligence investigation) is a type of corporate investigation in which an investigator does a deep dive into upcoming business decisions to make sure there are no major risks or undisclosed issues from the other parties involved. A lot is at stake in large business dealings, such as money, time, security, and reputation. Before entering into any major agreements, you want to be sure potential partners or key players are on the up and up before forming a financial relationship.
When to Consider Investigative Due Diligence
Prior to any major business transactions, investigative due diligence is worthy of consideration. It is better to be safe than sorry and taking the time to fully investigate any future transactions is better than dealing with fallout from a deal that wasn’t fully vetted. Some of the common scenarios that call for investigative due diligence include:
- Public offerings
- Joint Ventures
- Private Equity
- Venture Capital
- Large investments of any kind
Investigative due diligence has become a routine part of any major business decision for companies such as:
- Hedge Funds
- Private Equity Firms
- Family Officers
- Government Programs
- Investment Advisers
- Corporate Risk Managers
