The dedicated multi-lingual team specialise in historic trade reconstructions, substantial loss analysis, contextual benchmarking and investigating whistleblowing allegations.

Our investigators are highly skilled in looking beyond the numbers, their deep understanding of historic and current market practices proves invaluable to Financial Institutions (FIs) in their complex investigations. With financial penalties and legal settlements running into billions of dollars and the risks of reputational damage severe, having independent experts being able to explain possible motivations of counterparties and areas of potential misconduct can make all the difference to an investigation.
