Due Diligence Reduces Risk
By ensuring the credibility of all parties. Investors that are proactive conduct due diligence investigations routinely to verify information and uncover discrepancies, overstatements, and unrevealed facts. This extra check ensures that everyone involved in a proposed relationship is accurately presented.
- Benefits include having the necessary and truthful information, removing the unknowns when making sound investment decisions. In today's economic environment it is important to know exactly what you're getting when you decide to lend, buy a business, or invest into a commercial real estate project.
- In addition, many people misrepresent themselves and their intentions. For example, in order to secure a deal, a borrower may overstate its capabilities, inflate its assets, disguise its lack of financial stability, neglect to reveal past or imminent bankruptcies or even pending civil and criminal actions.
When do you Need a Certified Fraud Examiner?
- When faced with a 30 day period to conduct your due diligence. - When you're buying or lending on a property or business and find that you have more questions than answers. - When a project or investment requires a higher level of fact finding. - When "questionable" financial statements or transactions exist.
What is a CFE?
The Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) credential denotes proven expertise in fraud prevention, detection and deterrence. CFEs are trained to identify the warning signs and red flags that indicate evidence of fraud and fraud risk. CFEs around the world help protect the global economy by uncovering fraud and implementing processes to prevent fraud from occurring in the first place.

For example, in order to secure a deal, a borrower or seller may overstate its capabilities, inflate its assets, disguise its lack of financial stability, or even neglect to reveal bankruptcy and civil and criminal actions.
- When You Need Necessary and Truthful Information. Removing the unknowns is mandatory to making sound investment decisions. In today's economic environment it is important to know exactly what you're getting, when you decide to buy a business, lend or invest into a commercial real estate project.
