NOTTINGHAM, U.K. - April 7, 2021 - PRLog -- This case study shows how our services provided our client peace of mind. And stopped a substantial loss of funds. And most importantly, it kept it's fantastic reputation within family offices.

You know-how

You know how sometimes an opportunity comes along. And on the face of it, the investment opportunity looks like a winner. You conduct your own due diligence, and everything looks great. You let your trusted contacts know, and they are really keen. Their money is burning a hole in your pocket want to invest.

What was happening

Our client is a very well connected organisation. They help global Family Offices invest money into infrastructure, businesses and funds. Most deals involve at least £20m and usually north of £100m.

They isolated an excellent opportunity to invest in a Bond managed by a London based PLC. A PLC backed by a well known London fund. Verified and approved by Investment Insurers and a firm of city lawyers. They had just launched the Bond on a major and credible stock exchange backing up their research. They asked us to take a look at the key people offering the opportunity. To assess and provide an unbiased view of the tantalising opportunity.

Our mission

Our mission was to identify, isolate and analyse the leading key players. Assess the investment opportunity and the risk to their client's money.

This is what we did

We contacted former and current contacts of the target PLC. Then we conducted deep research, including searching for information within the deep web. Initial sweeps did not indicate any problem with the deal and the people behind it. But we continued and found out that one of the directors had 22 failed businesses. Not just closed businesses. But failed businesses owing money and with many annoyed former customers. There was a deliberate attempt to hide one of the fund directors real name. Revealing who this person was a real eye-opener.

The PLC advisory board had a US citizen with a credible name on it. The trouble is he knew nothing about it.
