SIGMAX consistently provides firms with the professional investigative consulting expertise necessary to resolve conflict through fact-finding and critical analysis. We have conducted thousands of investigations worldwide and have an unmatched track record of resolving disputes and working with in-house and outside counsel to successfully conduct and conclude internal or regulatory inquiries.

Our experts help organizations with their critical fact finding when they need to conduct internal investigations or to examine allegations of illegal activity. Whether or not actual misconduct is discovered, such inquiries, and their aftermath, can pose serious risks to companies and their stakeholders, damaging their reputation, disrupting their business operations and exposing them to government scrutiny, as well as to potential criminal, civil and regulatory liability. SIGMAX 's investigative services and expertise have helped clients successfully resolve investigations promptly and with minimal business disruption.

In situations where an independent investigative auditor may be required, SIGMAX can put its expert financial and investigative teams to work, having served as a court-appointed or agency-appointed monitor in numerous organizations including, finance, banking, construction as well as labor unions.

The globalization of business has helped facilitate the movement of assets. Funds can be transferred around the world instantaneously, and the ever-expanding world of offshore finance means that it can be relatively easy to set up complex corporate structures to hide the true ownership of assets. SIGMAX ’s asset search investigative expertise can help answer the age-old question: “Where is the money?”

SIGMAX has successfully conducted some of the most complex international asset searches over the last 40 years, including identifying billions of dollars in sovereign asset search investigations. Working on behalf of those seeking to enforce legal judgments awarding financial damages or seeking the return of funds misappropriated by corrupt government officials, SIGMAX has identified missing, previously unknown or hidden assets. Our extensive experience includes multi-jurisdictional investigations involving offshore capital flight havens, creditor-unfriendly jurisdictions, complex investment group structures and nominee and alter ego companies.

We help our clients identify:

• Real and intangible properties
• Financial accounts
• Business associations
• Contracts for future performance
• Accounts receivable
• Personal property — jets, yachts, luxury cars, fine art

SIGMAX ’s experts include teams with backgrounds in financial investigation, law enforcement, forensic accounting and internal investigations. Our global investigations have successfully identified assets for subjects who include the former heads of state and perpetrators of multibillion-dollar frauds.
