Due diligence in the BVI - simple but effective

18 Jun 2013

In the aftermath of the financial crisis of 2008, there has been greater emphasis placed on effective due diligence on investments and acquisition targets. Many investors could have avoided substantial losses if relatively straightforward due diligence had been carried out prior to investing. Best practice dictates that detailed due diligence must occur prior to and on an ongoing basis following an investment.

Due diligence is a relatively simple and cost effective exercise to undertake early in a transaction and can serve to highlight at a preliminary stage potential issues that could prove costly if not discovered until later. Our BVI team have been engaged on many due diligence exercises and have a wealth of experience in the area.
