While the pandemic continues to have a detrimental effect on investment activity, strategic buyers and investors seek to strike the right balance between the opportunity to invest in attractively priced assets and the risks inherent to the uncertainty of the short- and medium-term outlooks. This makes thorough due diligence more important than ever—the creative and comprehensive gathering of information and intelligence can help organizations better assess the opportunity and associated risks and identify areas of potential concern or opportunity that would otherwise have gone uncovered.
Join us to hear expert investigators Anna Gumowska and Shannon Rainey discuss scenarios in which investigative due diligence helped uncover areas of risk and opportunity for our clients, including:
- The use of strategic human intelligence gathering to assess management effectiveness, organizational culture, and the true market position of an investment target
- Research tips and tricks that maximize the potential of publicly available information
- The assessment of the impact of external factors, such as political and regulatory change
We will also discuss how to use the due diligence process to maximize the investment opportunity by putting the information gathered to best use and making it worth the expense.
