Everything you always wanted to know about Investigators, but were afraid to ask…

Highlights

Forget James Bond: myths and realities in corporate intelligence...

This event will address some of the common myths and misconceptions about investigators. In a format akin to BBC’s Question Time, attendees will be invited to submit questions in advance with our panel of experts drawing from their wealth of knowledge to provide insights, examples and a few home truths about asset tracing investigations.    

Myth #1: "I don’t need an investigator, I can do it myself"

Myth #2: "Isn’t it just Googling things?"

Myth #3: "I can find that investigator in Chad myself "

Myth #4: "These guys can hack anything"

Myth #5: "Are you all spies?"

Myth #6: “I want to find Mr. X’s bank accounts” 

Myth #7: “There is no banking information legally accessible in Switzerland”
