Global Association of Risk Professionals: Due Diligence Is Under Review
Supply Wisdom Team
Due diligence is long ingrained in the corporate world, particularly banking and finance. Vetting of customers, business partners, investment prospects, and vendor and third-party relationships is not only essential for risk management but is also increasingly subject to regulatory and investor scrutiny as companies face ever more complex anti-money laundering (AML) and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) auditing and reporting requirements.
The diligence process depends in part on having the right tools to perform data analysis on a deal and its participants, evaluate how the businesses fit together, and the likelihood of success or benefit.
Victor Meyer, Chief strategy officer Supply Wisdom, shares his views on having the appropriate tools to analyze data to assess the compatibility of the businesses during his interview for Global Association of Risk Professionals.
