Executive Background Screening

We offer comprehensive executive background screening when our customers need specialized due diligence for investments, sensitive hires and overall brand protection.

Protect Your Brand

Working with a team of private investigators, we minimize risk and potentially negative media exposure by thoroughly vetting those individuals or organizations with whom you plan to invest or hire a new executive, including within the hedge fund and private equity sector, and high-risk businesses such as banking, finance, pharmaceutical, oil & gas and retail.

We offer local and global investigations with a wide range of research levels, depending on your overall need and risk profiles.

Protect Your Intellectual Property

Our solutions provide a detailed view of a subject’s or a company’s background before making the hiring or investment decision.  We help you protect your organization from the insider threat, to keep your intellectual property and most sensitive data secure. 

Protect Your Investment
