Asset Investigations Services & Recovery
Asset investigation is crucial for the successful recovery of proceeds of fraud and embezzlement. It is also through asset investigation that financiers can carry out proper due diligence in respect of assets they intend to take as security and investors can access the legitimacy of assets and ventures, they intend to invest in.
Asset tracing and investigation is also an important tool for creditors as it allows those who are considering instituting claims in court to ascertain unencumbered assets and obtain preservation orders against them to aid in recovery; it also aids in the enforcement of court decrees and judgments which would otherwise be hindered by lack of knowledge of the judgment debtor’s assets.
