In the initial stages we make assessments according to the strict rule of law. We gather intelligence from a wide variety of sources and utilize many tactics as well. Visiting companies on location, sending mystery shoppers/investors and using the information provided by the company to their supervisor. We also periodically interview shareholders, board members and committee members.
Management provides regular reports to update management in order to ensure that risks are being dealt with properly and control methods are sufficient.
Once we have identified and have properly monitored the risks, the risk must be neutralized. This is done by assessing the cost and benefit of using either regular or alternative tools to lower the risk to either the business or the market.
