Our deep experience in the maritime industry means that we know how to tackle the challenges of establishing beneficial ownership and assessing the financial standing for often opaque offshore corporate structures.
At the base level, investigative research in offshore jurisdictions and low-profile private companies in the raw material trading and shipping chain requires knowledge of what is available in publicly accessible registries, how to access it and the individual idiosyncrasies of those registries that leave gaps that can be mined for more information.
With typically no access to financial statements and limited public records, we leverage on our in-depth market knowledge, contacts and experience to home in on the primary information sources – human brain. We explore areas such as the market sector, geographic area of operations, supplier profile, customer base, support services providers, regulatory authorities and specialist databases (for maritime, vessels and customs data).
Our collaborative client relationship ensures that the focus is continually adjusted to give the most commercially relevant, cost effective results, with no padding.
