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. Upon completion of the course, field investigators will be able to conduct international due diligence investigations, navigate and utilize social networks in specific countries, and spot indicators to fraudulent practices and shell companies.
