Methodology
 
FINANCIAL INVESTIGATION
"The art of piecing together cross-border information into an overview of a global picture."
DUE DILIGENCE
Due diligence is increasingly necessary in this global world, as companies and people freely migrate around the planet. Banks, stock exchanges, investors, regulators often know too little, too late about counterparties. Intel Suisse offers the following :
  • background screening and reporting
  • listing status suitability (who's really behind a company??)
  • financial analysis and balance sheet strength
  • criminal and financial investigation
  • cross-border red flags
  • regulator/governmental advisory work re. local vs global reputational risk
  • provide geo-political risk reports re. jurisdiction, markets and country-risk
FRAUD
When fraud occurs, generally the following issues arise :
  • the fraudster(s) have defrauded before
  • the fraudster(s), the fraud, the clients are in different jurisdictions
  • the regulators are often powerless to act
  • the fraudster(s) are sophisticated, hiding behind corporate veils, internet anonymity, etc..
  • fraudster(s) often move faster than law enforcement/regulators, eg cross border..
  • but fraudster(s) do leave a trail!!!

ASSET RECOVERY
"The art of finding the assets, using legal procedures and/or persuasive power to recover assets."
UNDISPUTED ASSETS
Recovery of undisputed assets is relatively straightforward - once located. There are often local legal and tax issues involved, but generally bona fide title is accepted in most developed countries. Intel Suisse will :
  • assist in preparing title documents and title claims
  • assist in researching local level format acceptability of title
  • assist in ring-fencing. protecting and re-locating assets once recovered
  • assist in establishing robust title in a preferred jurisdiction
  • or assist in sale of assets once recovered
DISPUTED ASSETS
Recovery of disputed assets is a headache - once/if located, local laws will often be "bent", documents falsified, courts bought. Intel Suisse knows how to handle these sort of disputes, but costs must be balanced against recovery value. Intel Suisse will :
  • advise on a risk/return strategy for asset recovery, proposing probabilities of success and potential downsides
  • assist in preparing title documents and title claims
  • assist in researching local level format acceptability of title
  • assist in reing-fencing. protecting and re-locating assets prior to recovery
  • assist in establishing robust title in a preferred jurisdiction
  • or assist in sale of assets once recovered
