Due Diligence and Materiality Assessments
Our Corisk Due Diligence Risk Scan gives a quantified risk picture at the start of a Due Diligence process, to map specific areas of concern and give direction to further deep-dives into country risk, enterprise risk, or integrity risk. Due Diligence will normally target a potential acquisition, a new market, or a buyer in the case of exit from a market.
In a more comprehensive investment or M&A process, we would typically integrate Country Risk Analysis and Integrity Due Diligence in the way indicated in blue colour in the figure below, where the initial Due Diligence Risk Scan will be performed during the first “Scanning” phase and give direction to analysis during later process phases:
Dark blue colour in the table indicates full-scale deliveries from Corisk and partners, including Country Risk Premium for the Internal Rate of Return (IRR) or Cost of Capital.
Light blue colour indicates areas where Corisk is able to give qualified contributions to process delivery.
Materiality Assessments of the client’s impact on, and impact from, human rights or the environment, are increasingly becoming mandatory. This presents clients with totally new requirements of risk awareness. Corisk provides a systematic analysis, identifying which risk areas are specifically relevant for Due Diligence and Materiality Assessments, per market.
