FULL SPECTRUM OF SERVICES
Concentric works across all sectors and industries to deliver high-quality research and assistance through assessments of companies, executives, partners, competitors, and more.
Our core services include due diligence on potential investments and M&A deals, helping clients gain a deeper understanding of the target company and its leadership, as well as its prospects, trends, and competitive position.
Our investigators zero in on the company’s risks and advantages, reputation, strengths and weaknesses, management team, and corporate culture, among other areas of interest to our clients.
We enhance our research through in-depth interviews with sources that include former employees, competitors, industry experts, and customers. Concentric also assists clients engaged in proxy fights by vetting boards, management, and activists.
BACKGROUND INVESTIGATIONS AND PRE-EMPLOYMENT DILIGENCE
Identifying hidden risks and potential vulnerabilities
UNCOVERING UNIQUE INSIGHTS
Concentric supports client decisionmaking by giving investors an informed understanding of their current and potential business relationships.
Through a combination of public records searches and interviews with primary sources, Concentric’s pre-employment diligence and background investigations provide an in-depth review of senior executives, partners, and third-party agents, as well as suppliers, distributors, and vendors.
Such diligence has allowed us to identify and mitigate potential risks for investors, including reputational risks, as they consider new business relationships.
We complement this research by interviewing off-list references who can provide insights on a person’s character and background. In cases where a position may have access to sensitive information or assets, our former CIA or FBI polygraphers can interview the candidate, which can help clarify any questions or concerns emerging from the background investigation.
