Private equity investors
Some of the world’s largest private equity firms come to us to work on a range of matters including:

  • Pre-deal due diligence to gain a full understanding of the performance, integrity and reputation of the target investment entity and its key individuals.
  • Independent assessments of potential key recruits to portfolio companies, to understand their reputation, track record and probity. Our assessments are completely objective, and, unlike headhunters, we don’t have a financial interest in whether or not a hire goes ahead.
  • Insight into unfamiliar or complex operating environments. This includes sources of potential disruption, exposure to corruption and malfeasance, and the attitudes and sentiment of relevant stakeholders.
