Asia Due Diligence

Objective

Investigate whether a number of individuals and companies located in Hong Kong had relationships with any of multiple other individuals and companies located in Singapore.

Results

Through comprehensive international litigation and media research, Forward Risk was able to create a map of business and personal relationships between the Hong Kong and Singapore entities, which included individuals and businesses not already identified by the client to research. The mapping revealed that seemingly unrelated parties were connected through company subsidiaries, business ownership transfers, litigation, and a country’s national tennis association.

Value-add

Forward Risk was able to determine that linking the Hong Kong entities to the Singapore entities warranted further research in Cambodia, Japan and Thailand to clarify the relationships identified.
