Armed with a unique business and culture lens, we shine a light into all corners of regulated businesses to identify the risks. 

We’re the UK’s leading provider of regulatory due diligence. With us, you’ll get a clear picture of the conduct, operational and reputational history and risks. So, whether you’re buying or selling, you’ll get the confidence of a fair and trustworthy acquisition price.

Our true value lies in our ability to connect the dots between compliance, culture and commercial success. We don’t just look at the permissions and legal set up, we quickly sniff out poor customer outcomes resulting from cultural drivers which can influence the acquisition value.

As a result, you’ll be better protected from regulatory risks and the chances of expensive rectification and section 166 reviews further down the line.

What we do

We’re completely flexible, so you can choose from a range of tailored options. So, whether you have specific concerns or want a detailed review, we dial up or down the level of scrutiny to meet your risk appetite and needs.

  1. Choose your focus – Choose from deep dives into areas of specific concern, such as business model, controls environment or customer acquisition strategy. Or we can conduct a broader, more detailed review if required.
  2. Apply a culture lens – Our assessment is always underpinned by a view of the firm’s culture and the degree to which the tone from the top is embedded – no one does this as well as we do.
  3. Get transitional support – We can support your business integration plans, including ‘change in controller’ notifications, for a smooth transition.
  4. Merge culture successfully – Having conducted the due diligence, we have a deep understanding of the firm’s culture. We are perfectly placed to help you merge the cultures of acquired firms with your own and ensure a smooth cultural transition.
