Uncovering evidence cost-effectively
Costs in cross-border multi-national asset searches can quickly escalate. To help deliver cost-effective outcomes, we:
- design a tailored, scaled work plan delivered in a phased manner
- conduct forensic reviews of financial and commercial information for indications of asset transfers and diversions
- combine searches of openly available material with our own discreet source enquiries to determine “actionable” intelligence
- map structures that might have facilitated the transfer of funds and assets, including shell companies and nominee directors and/or shareholders
- use our comprehensive profile of purported assets and business activities to focus on leads where recovery and enforcement of awards is most likely to yield a successful outcome
- provide advice that is built on a robust evidence base, grounded in rigorous analysis and supported by FTI Consulting’s forensic heritage
Asset tracing offshore
Both corporate entities and individuals often locate holding companies in offshore jurisdictions, such as the British Virgin Islands (BVI) and the Cayman Islands. Lack of publicly available information and complex group structures enable sophisticated parties to conceal the location, source and ownership of assets. With offices in the BVI, the Cayman Islands, and across the world, our investigation team has a proven track record of recovering assets offshore, using a combination of investigative skills,
intelligence sources and leading technologies.
