    Policy and regulatory

    We provide specialised, in-depth research in relation to policy and/or regulatory matters, specifically those relating to financial crime. This includes detailed research to support the development of effective anti-financial crime policies, through the interpretation, assessment and application of guidance, such as that produced by the UK Joint Money Laundering Steering Group (JMLSG). We undertake qualitative research of primary and credible secondary data sources worldwide, in support of risk assessments, and policy development, drawing on extensive team-wide research capability. Our team comprises individuals highly skilled in academic research methods.

    Bid defence

    We support organisations facing hostile bids, through comprehensive research and investigations to identify pertinent issues concerning the bidder or its management team. For example, what does the bidder's track record indicate about its possible future intentions, and could those potentially run counter to existing stakeholder interests? We provide credible and useable information that may assist companies to mount a successful defence.
