This one day interactive workshop will look at a range of topics fundamental to an effective due diligence process, both for one-off transactions and ongoing relationships on behalf of individuals and companies.

The day will cover:

 - What Due Diligence is, and the difference between the quantitative and qualitative approach

 - The role and importance of the Risk Based Approach – what are the risks and how do you measure them?

 - What are the free to access, open data sources that you can use, and what are the strengths and weaknesses of each

 - How to recognise the “red flags” which might be observed within corporate entity structures, filings and the individuals associated with them

 - Understanding some of the associated datasets that can enrich company of individual information

 - Other techniques that can aid open source intelligence (OSINT) due diligence research

 About the trainer

Graham has worked in financial services for the past twenty-five years, latterly providing expertise to a number of high-profile banks in relation to their financial crime control frameworks. He has written the due diligence policy for one global bank and contributed significant expertise to many others.

He also works closely with a large number of investigative journalists in both print and broadcast media, helping them to identify and write about organised crime and corruption specifically in respect of the use of legal entities (companies) for laundering the proceeds of their crimes.

Graham regularly speaks at in-house and public events to raise awareness of the close links between financial crime and the organised criminal gangs and corrupt individuals who are responsible for so much of the dirty money entering the financial system and, in particular, the role of UK entities in enabling this.

He has deep knowledge of how shady people hide behind a corporate personality to hide their intent and of the red flags that can indicate this is happening.
