Frequently Asked Questions

How do you qualify your human intelligence and present that information in a report?

By speaking with well-informed sources in a given industry and adhering to strict intelligence qualifying standards, we avoid presenting speculative and unreliable intelligence as facts. Potentially adverse intelligence is presented in its proper context and almost always alongside commentary from additional sources to support or refute it.

Can you identify the ultimate beneficial owner of a company operating in an opaque jurisdiction?

Through the combination of open source and human intelligence, Vcheck Global’s investigators can often identify the ultimate beneficial owner (UBO) of a company operating in an opaque jurisdiction and more importantly understand if that UBO is the actual owner or a front man.

How do you maintain discretion?

We go to great lengths to ensure that discretion is not breached in our investigations. By adhering to our intelligence and source qualifying standards and fully understanding our client's requirements beforehand, we are able to maintain discretion throughout the investigation process.
