3.4    Due Diligence
Due diligence implies “being alert and careful, taking all reasonable measures to avoid unplanned risk exposure”.  Clients who normally wish to access this service are potential (foreign) investors wishing to invest in entities advertised for divestiture.  Such investors would be normally being availed with a prospectus comprising data on the opportunities on offer, but a prudent investor would wish to cross check this information to ascertain its accuracy and reliability before making his irrevocable bid.  He would also need to have such other additional information as might be deemed relevant (e.g. various legislation) but which may not have been included in the advertised firm`s prospectus.  Proper-Consult has expertise to handle such highly exacting assignments.
