Why Conduct Investigative Due Diligence?

Tune in to any media channel and you'll find the answer in story after story about fallen financiers like Bernie Madoff, Allen Stanford, Sam Israel, Paul Greenwood, Tom Petters, William Del Biaggio and Raj Rajaratnam.

The lesson in all these high profile blowups is clear and simple: No matter what you're doing with your money, it's essential to know the background and character of individuals and entities you're doing business with or thinking of doing business with.

Conducting proper investigative due diligence can help you steer clear of potentially bad investments and save yourself the time, expense and headache of recovering your assets - if they still exist.
