Hg’s Commitment & Approach

In today’s global marketplace, companies need to know what their clients expect from them five years and beyond. Our experts focus on your external competitive environment—major/minor competitors, vendors, and supply chains—and provide you a comprehensive analysis that will enable you to establish a strategic plan for competitive growth.

We believe successful partnerships are built on honesty. We craft our business research and analysis around the needs of our clients, adhering to foreign and domestic ethics standards and laws. Our expert investigations enable you to understand your market, so you can be resilient now and well into the future.

We bring peace of mind. Whether you’re looking to find a new partner, acquire a business, or understand the supply chain for a new venture, there’s no better way to make a critical decision than knowing you’ve received thorough and accurate research and analysis from a trusted and proven investigation firm. Our team tracks down financial sources, legal filings, and reputational issues to help inform your business decisions.

Our Phased Approach puts control in your hands. As a business intelligence firm, we scrutinize competitive information from public and subscription sources, by networking with competitor staff and customers, and by conducting discreet field research interviews.

In Phase One, our investigators work with you to understand your specific needs and then get to work researching and analyzing preliminary data across a variety of platforms: non-traditional Internet resources, social platforms, government databases, and public records. We summarize our findings in a report, and if the data is sufficient, our work is done.

If, however, our initial investigation reveals the need for a deeper dive, you have the option to move onto Phase Two. In our boots-on-the ground stage, our expert analysts will go onsite, conduct live interviews, contact references, and send court retrievers to compile data wherever the person lived or worked.

We deliver a business report and analysis to empower you to make sound decisions in life and business. At the conclusion of each project, we will deliver a report with Key Findings and Recommended Next Steps that summarize the vital issues pertaining to the subject of our investigation. The core material of the report will be the substantiating documentation t discovered during the course of our research and analysis.
