We conduct asset checks and asset investigations. What's the difference between the two?
As the name implies, in any of the two circumstances, we are looking for assets, whether it be cursory search or an in-depth investigation to find difficult to locate assets.
An asset search may be as simple as us looking to see if someone owns a motor vehicle. Or, perhaps it is to see if the subject has any real estate in their name. They are usually straight forward and cost less than an asset investigation.
Asset investigations generally speaking, require us to look at various avenues of a financial situation and dig deeper into areas of interest. We look at complex connections between persons, places and things. An asset investigation is usually more expensive because of the labor that goes into producing a quality investigation.
Should I Choose a Asset Check or a Asset Investigation?
This question is best answered by what is at stake. Is this to ensure you your dues during a divorce? Is this to really know if your partner has anything they aren't telling you? Are you looking to enter litigation and need to know whether it is worth pursuing?
An asset investigation is the best choice for those scenarios. Where as, if you are needing basic asset checks on a person or company to have a general broad understanding, an asset search may be in your best interest. It is a matter of risk vs. reward.
