International Background Checks
International background checks and third party due diligence reports into senior executives, managers and new hires, entails rigorous interrogation and analysis of information gathered from a range of open sources. Our team of Analysts and Associates interrogate the individual’s CV, application forms and corporate history specifically looking for adverse information and risk, including undisclosed red flags, conflicting findings, false or exaggerated statements and report these findings to the client.
Our Fit and Proper checks, third party due diligence reports and international background checks covers multiple global jurisdictions and the following research is performed in various key languages.
Insolvency / Bankruptcy research:
Checking whether an applicant has ever been made bankrupt or is currently going through insolvency proceedings.
Directorship searches and affiliations:
Examining whether applicants have undisclosed directorship appointments, or shareholdings that may hide conflicts of interest or a history of failed or liquidated companies.
Cross-referencing the Disqualified Directorship Register to search if an applicant is unfitting to be a company director.
Reported Court Cases, County Court Judgments, Liens and Litigation checks:
As part of the background checks, we search for undeclared court cases and CCJs. This research often identifies financial difficulties, as well as commercial disputes between individuals.
National and International Sanctions research:
Compliance regulations and good practice now requires sanction searches across multiple jurisdictions to be completed before a transaction or engagement can be concluded. Sanction searches include Politically Exposed Person searches, State-Owned relationships, Persons of Significant Interest, Financial Services’ enforcement/fines and other international registers.
Adverse National and International Media research:
Searching through press articles dating back over the last 40 plus years often uncovers adverse or negative press on an applicant or entity. Press research may also identify historical employment that uncover potential dismissals and conflicting relationships that has been omitted from CVs and application forms.
Employment, Education and Professional Qualifications:
Our background checks will verify an applicant’s working history looking for gaps in employment, false dates, inflated salaries and exaggerated positions. Contacting universities and professional institutions often uncovers lapsed memberships, degrees that were not awarded, incomplete or failed courses and other discrepancies.
