Corporate intelligence is an invaluable aid to sound business decision making

  • Do you really know who you are about to do business with?
  • Is your organization about to undertake a joint venture or acquisition? Would you like to avoid potentially unpleasant surprises?

Failure to adequately assess agents, distributors, joint venture partners, logistics intermediaries and other partners to understand how they operate and who is behind an organization can expose you to reputational damage, operational risk and government investigations, as well as significant monetary penalties and potential criminal liability.

How KPMG can help

By gathering critical information on individuals and entities, we can equip you with the intelligence and insight necessary to make sound decisions with more confidence and less risk.

Corporate intelligence is an invaluable aid to sound business decision making. Our corporate intelligence practice gathers business-critical information on your current and prospective business partners to help you reduce risk, enter new markets, solve corporate problems, aid in investigations and enhance business opportunities.

Companies often seek corporate intelligence before entering into investments, joint ventures and acquisitions. It can be crucial when doing business in emerging offshore markets where reliable information on individuals and organisations can be scarce. It complements and augments the financial and legal due diligence undertaken by mainstream advisers.

Our third-party risk management solutions are focused on assisting clients identify and prioritize higher risk business relationships, implementing and enhancing overall due diligence processes and protocols as well as performing customized integrity due diligence (or corporate intelligence) of third parties based on varying levels of risk.

Our approach to third-party risk management is informed by, and is responsive to, a variety of global risks as well as regulatory compliance-drivers, including the US. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the UK Anti-Bribery Act, AML legislation, securities and exchange regulations and as well as consumer and data protection regulations.
