    • The environment: Compliance regulations require Integrity Due Diligence

      Integrity Due Diligence requires expert knowledge from different sectors and very often across countries.

      For example to identify the beneficial owners of an international structure of shell companies,

      to research on possible criminal or civil litigations of a business partner

      or to trace and recover hidden assets of an entity.

    Knowing relevant information sources in a jurisdiction that can be used are key for complete and consistent research.

    • The challenge: A highly fragmented information situation

      The availability, accessibility, contents and quality of public records and commercial databases differs widely.

      This is often challenging enough in western countries.

      And many transactions take place in emerging countries, where the situation is even more difficult.

    On the other hand, information for Integrity Due Diligence and compliance research is often needed
    on a short notice and on a global level. But a consistent basis of sources is missing.

    • The solution: The Global Compliance Research Directory (GCRD)

      GCRD is a structured and dynamic repository of relevant sources and registers and their characteristics.

      Key considerations: Which sources are available in a jurisdiction, where and how can information be obtained?

      Coverage of >30.000 sources in more than 180 jurisdictions - and counting.

    Helping you to use the full spectrum of available sources.
    And to turn unstructured and fragmented pieces of information into "intelligence".
