Political connections can expose you to risk

During an IntegraCheck® | Integrity Due Diligence background check on a company in Armenia, we discovered through reputational enquiries that the owner of the company was the brother of a high-ranking elected official in the Prime Minister’s office of Armenia.

Our research team informed the client that the role of the company’s owner in the politics and economic affairs of Armenia increased significantly.

The team demonstrated to the client how business executives in the post-Soviet Union are interconnected, and how they may misuse their political power, influence and wealth to misrepresent business interests in Armenia.
