Intelligence service aimed at reconstructing all the official and hidden assets attributed to a subject,
physical or legal.
The investigations will allow you to discover:
– Official activities
– Occult income
– Current accounts
– Distracted assets
Asset tracking is the process by which investigators “follow money”. Investigators keep track of activities by
conducting financial investigations, during which they determine the resources of a subject and identify
them. The traceability of resources and income allows us to meet every need for debt collection, with
different levels of complexity and in-depth analysis. The traceability of activities by our asset tracking
agency in Italy offers many advantages even in the case of employees, including cases of public corruption.
First of all, these investigations help to prove crime by providing valuable evidence. Many tests can support
informants and undercover agents, identify new witnesses to the process and confirm testimonies.
Secondly, the traceability of resources helps to generate new contacts for the survey, potentially leading to
further objectives and / or burdens. Thirdly, tracing involves the identification of assets subject to
confiscation in relation to the crime. Confiscation of resources can have a huge impact in criminal cases,
particularly when it is used to seize significant assets from criminal organizations. In effect, confiscation of
resources eliminates profit from crime. A financial investigation can also reveal useful evidence for the
conviction. Finally, financial investigations can help in the return process, returning money and property to
victims of crime. A financial investigation should be considered at the beginning of a criminal proceeding
and should be conducted together with other aspects of the investigation. It may take a long time to collect
the financial documents by convocation and if the investigation is expected to be well underway, the
records could be of little or no help. One of the biggest challenges in a case where there are significant
resources is to link activities to criminal activities. The traceability of resources helps to establish this
connection by observing the “path of paper”.
Traceability of activities is important for any “white collar” investigation, but it is particularly important in
corruption cases. Crimes of public corruption are generally money-related crimes. A CEO who corrupts a
legislator in return for the legislator’s help with a pending account, a mid-level employee stealing money at
work, a procurement officer who approves the scale of the bidding process in exchange for a personal
benefit: all these individuals are motivated by money. To prove these crimes, investigators must
understand where the money comes from; often it is also quite useful to show where the money went,
especially because corrupt officials will hide their illicit gains and this can be an effective proof already in
itself. Public corruption crimes sometimes involve bribes in the form of non-submissions or fraudulent
counseling agreements. In this type of case, the lack of documentation normally seen in business will be a
precious proof. Income can be tangible assets or fungible raw materials. Even where the proceeds are in
the simplest form – cash – that money will probably be deposited somewhere, and often this results in a
series of complex financial transactions (which can also constitute a separate crime of money laundering),
including credit transfers. banking and the use of company of convenience. Criminals obviously use these
methods to prevent law enforcement agencies from identifying and tracking the profits of their crimes.
Common crimes of public corruption such as bribes, public theft, illegal campaign contributions and illegal
tricks can be difficult to track because the proceeds are generally transferred around, often referred to as
relatives or associates and / or are converted into various activities.
