Latin America Financial Acquisition Due Diligence

A large multinational financial institution was preparing to close on a sizeable investment in an overseas bank.

TAG conducted a thorough review of the bank’s senior management who lived and worked throughout the region. Using a variety of investigative methods including inquiries with corporate, regulatory and industry sources, TAG determined that a member of the senior management team had a significant business relationship with a known criminal. Our investigation also revealed that the same executive had been investigated for alleged involvement in criminal activities.

The information uncovered allowed the client to move ahead with the acquisition while minimizing the risk associated with the questionable executive.
