How Investigators Help Investors Identify Real Risks

Investors know how to conduct financial, accounting and legal due diligence. But investors also want to be comfortable with the backgrounds and reputations of the people who run the business. How much does your team really know about the potential risks associated with these virtual strangers, who may be on the other side of the globe? Misrepresentations, undisclosed controversies and other surprises with the management team can put your reputation and capital at risk.

What are the best practices in looking into these relationships? What can a background check uncover? What can be checked? Are the real risks in a particular investment being addressed? Where is the line between being thorough and going expensively, intrusively overboard?

Drawing on 30 years of experience, hear this leading expert share real case histories to illustrate how background checks have helped protect investors. Other highlights include:

  • Understanding the real risks investors face today when entering new relationships
  • How the kinds of information you need can depend on the type of relationship you are contemplating
  • Sexual misconduct and other examples of risks uncovered by going well beyond the obvious online searches

Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions both in advance of, and during, the webinar. Email your questions to events@acg.org.
