Key Risk Consulting Experience:

Due Diligence
Key Risk Consulting has been engaged on numerous occasions with law firms representing investors to conduct discreet reputational due diligence investigations into the entity being targeted for either a joint venture or capital investment opportunity. The nature of these investigations was highly sensitive and required Key Risk Consulting operatives to demonstrate not only solid research capabilities but also a capacity to obtain reputational information regarding the targets, both of which are accurate and valuable to support our clients decision making requirements. To date, we have conducted such work in a number of South East Asia countries—where public domain information is sometimes opaque—as well as in the Peoples Republic of China.

3rd Party Compliance Investigations
We have experience conducting a significant number of discreet investigations into the 3rd party agents contracted to provide services for a U.S based Fortune 50 company. These investigations covered a wide range of countries within South East Asia including Indonesia, Philippines, Myanmar, Brunei, Malaysia, Vietnam and Thailand. To date Key Risk Consulting personnel have conducted in excess of 100 such assignments for the Client.

Anti – Counterfeit Investigation
We have been engaged by a number of multi-national corporations in the retail fashion industry to conduct investigations and raid actions on their behalf across Asia. These raid actions have resulted in the seizure of counterfeit goods from illegal manufacturers, shipping agencies, storage and retail entities.
