We were retained by a global investment bank to conduct a due diligence investigation into an Emirati investment firm and four principals.
The company had a minimal public profile owing in part to its recent incorporation. However, public records research identified strong links to the emirate’s ruling family. One of its principals was a granddaughter of the emirate’s founder and thus likely to own a share of the company; another was referred to as a representative of the royals; while a third was a prominent diplomat.
We identified no negative information relating to the company’s activities and no evidence of corruption on the part of the four principals.
