Knowing your business partners
Close partners are often a necessity, especially in many high growth markets. The right partner can foster success; the wrong can deliver business failure and be a significant regulatory risk. The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the upcoming UK Bribery Act hold organizations responsible not only for the corrupt actions of their own employees, but also those of any intermediaries and third party agents. Ensuring a current or prospective business partner’s organizational compliance with these regulatory schemes, understanding their management style, political connections and providing an auditable trail are necessary for business today.
Kroll is uniquely positioned to investigate the strengths of third parties from two essential perspectives: their ability to deliver what you expect from the partnership, and their potential to expose you to regulatory problems. We provide an unmatched blend of public record analysis, local intelligence gathering, internal reviews and training to minimize the potential risks.
