Shareholder Activism

Objective

Assist a shareholder activism campaign by assessing the financial standing of a financial executive at a well-known publicly traded US company.

Results

A deep dive review of property and litigation records and regulatory filings, combined with a triangulation of social media posts belonging to the subject and his family, found that the well-compensated executive was not in apparent financial distress despite multiple divorces and a plethora of unconventional side businesses.

Value-add

As the subject had resided in over a dozen counties across several states, extensive record analysis by an experienced investigator were required in order to get an accurate picture of the subject’s current financial situation. Forward Risk assisted the client by reviewing hundreds of pages of divorce rulings and property transfer documents. Close coordination between the lead investigator and on-site court runners led to the successful location of key documents that were not available online.
