M&A Intelligence

We assist clients before and during an M&A deal by collecting intelligence beyond routine legal and financial checks, which is invaluable for enhancing their negotiating position.

This involves uncovering less apparent transactional risks, including undisclosed vested interests, connections and strategies within the tendering syndicate, as well as price-sensitive information.

Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) Research

Socially conscious investors engage Audere for ESG screening to scrutinise third-party associations and identify risks arising from partnerships or suppliers. This is particularly crucial in less regulated markets, where supply chain and adherence to standards are less visible.

Background Checks

People pose the greatest risks to businesses, including insider trading, corporate espionage, bribery, or the theft of Intellectual Property (IP). We verify the credibility of individuals as part of third-party Know Your Customer (KYC) background checks. This includes prospective directors and clients, as well as suppliers, agents, and third-party providers.

Sanctions & International Regulations Checks

Companies subject to the provisions of The Foreign and Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) should conduct due diligence before engaging in transactions with foreign third parties. They are also expected to assess their FCPA risk level and monitor it in the respective country.

Our research and analysis assist clients in complying with international corruption legislation, including the UK Bribery Act and FCPA, as well as internal Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) compliance checks. To maintain adherence to these standards, we offer a monitoring program that includes spot checks and long-term detection measures.
