Investigative Due Diligence

February 1, 2016

Grapevine conducts routine background, reputation, or compliance checks on potential partners, acquisition or merger targets, customers, vendors, or senior employees in Asia.



Standard Level 1 Due Diligence (DDL1)


Essentially the entry level Due Diligence, mostly for compliance-driven checks on vendors, customers, partners, agents, senior hires, etc., including M&A related background checks, Know-Your-Customer (“KYC”) check.


Case Examples:


- Background and reputational checks on PRC distributors for a global company;

- FCPA-related vendor vetting;

- Credentials verification/screening on immigration applicants i.e. PRC nationals applying for foreign citizenships;

- Pre-IPO red flag checks; 

- Checks on buyers of high-value luxury articles, etc.

Level 2 Due Diligence (DDL2)


DDL2 is often built up based on DDL1 and other customized search items, it usually consists of in-depth checks on individuals/companies engaged in high-value transactions such as global M&A, high-profile equity investment etc.


The key objectives typically cover establishing and assessing 1) social/political connections; 2) financial capacity and stability; 3) general business reputation, including issues with past deals/partners; 4) corporate strategies; 5) red flags or potential risks in dealing with the subject.
