Multi-national corporations, private equity firms, hedge funds – all rely heavily on their transaction advisors to provide pre-deal due diligence. But, when it comes to emerging and frontier markets, local knowledge and understanding isn’t so easy to come by. Even global advisory firms lack relationships with local resources for “boots on the ground” intelligence gathering. With important business decisions to be made in new markets and few native contacts or connections for this type of discovery, the risk increases.
