International due diligence is vital for business success and management. It can be a straightforward task, if you know how to utilize the right resources from the plethora of information available. In this course, we will review available databases and open sources for a variety of countries to conduct international due diligence and background checks. Participants will examine sources for information, including the top foreign corporate databases for researching overseas companies and their principals; explore a list of databases serving foreign countries; and acquire global resources helpful for consolidating multiple country searches.

Learning objectives:

  • Conduct international due diligence investigations
  • Navigate and utilize social networks in specific countries
  • Spot indicators to fraudulent practices and shell companies
