International background checks

Bakgrundskontroll - Bas

ToFindOut offers background screenings of candidates overseas, for both international clients requiring screenings of Swedish candidates and Swedish clients that wish to screen international candidates.

We do our own research in the Nordic and Baltic countries, as well as in the US. We also collaborate with local and global partners in order to be able to offer a consistent and qualitative process.

This screening option incorporates the same elements as the Basic, Specialist/Manager and Executive option, but may be tailored according to the specific availability of information in a particular jurisdiction.

Integrity Due Diligence

Bakgrundskontroll - Bas

Growing anti-corruption legislation and regulation over the recent years make it increasingly important for companies to understand the integrity risk associated with third parties (including their agents, distributors, representatives or potential strategic investments), in order to protect themselves from corruption, fraud or reputational damage, and to fulfil compliance requirements. Integrity due diligence (IDD) is an essential tool that enables clients to anticipate, prevent and mitigate risk, while contributing to informed board level decision-making.

The scope of ToFindOut’s IDD work can be tailored to your specific needs depending on your company’s individual circumstances, sector and jurisdiction, although typically our IDD will provide an assessment of the trustworthiness and reliability of customers, business partners and third parties, identifying any critical ‘red flags’ associated with these. Typical ‘red flags’ may range from money-laundering, fraud and tax evasion, to affiliations with untoward or controversial business partners.


Key issues addressed include:
The identity of the company.
Business background and activities.
Ultimate beneficial owner (UBO), including indications of state or public ownership.
Potential political and official connections held by the Subject company or its Principals.
Litigation or credit issues.
The Subject or its Principals’ reported involvement in ‘red flag’ issues, such as bribery or corruption, or adverse media reporting.
Searches of international sanctions lists and politically exposed person (PEP) databases.

"Candidates whose CVs are verified often ask us if we ring up their current employer and ask around. Naturally we don’t! Most often this research element is left out. In case we do need to verify a current employment we will do this in a way that does not jeopardise the Candidate."

Åsa Edman Källströmer

"These days, background screenings are an integral part of both our client assignments and our internal processes. Being in continuous dialogue with both the client and the candidate over the process and the contents of the report increases trust. And being able to offer a solid factual basis reinforces our corporate vision, to look beyond bias and prejudice."

"A sound basis for solid decision making means Swedish businesses can stay one step ahead of their clients, be informed about their counterparties, and avoid pitfalls such as reputational damage, regulatory fines and other risk that can be avoided through an effective due diligence."
