Due Diligence Our Approach

Our Approach

TRACE due diligence reports cover key information related to an intermediary’s ownership, personnel and reputation and provide insights into competencies, background and compliance track record. Our team of multilingual due diligence analysts and anti-bribery lawyers work with intermediaries to build and verify a complete and accurate picture while carefully vetting each due diligence report for accuracy and consistency with external sources. TRACE follows up with intermediaries regarding any discrepancies or adverse information identified during the course of the review.

TRACE’s reputational screening process covers thousands of U.S., international and in-country news sources, hundreds of international sanctions and enforcement lists and a database of politically exposed persons. Reputational screenings also include an internet-based search. TRACE’s highly sophisticated search methodology, based on years of research and experience, captures the most accurate results. Searches can be performed in both English and the subject’s local language.
