The Official Launch of the Citizenship by Investment Programme in Saint Lucia on 29th December 2015, provided the Chairman of the Citizenship by Investment Board with the opportunity to make the announcement that three international due diligence firms had been engaged to perform due diligence background checks on applicants for citizenship.
One of the main concerns with the Programme has been that non desirable people would be granted citizenship of Saint Lucia. There have been numerous calls to ensure that there is proper due diligence done on applicants.
The Citizenship by Investment Regulations mandate that a due diligence background check is done on every applicant over the age of sixteen. Three of the biggest firms which specialize in conducting due diligence background checks have been contracted for the Saint Lucia programme. Thomson Reuters has an extensive network of research analysts who are strategically located around the world and speak over 60 local languages. Their Enhance Due Diligence Reports provide a detailed background check on any entity or individual, no matter where they are located in the world. BDO Consulting uses multidisciplinary project teams to leverage BDO’s global network and technological resources to provide reports uniquely tailored to each client’s individual risk profile and preferences. IPSA International has subject matter experts, investigators and researchers from a wide range of backgrounds and experience such as law enforcement, risk audits, journalists, detectives, fraud examiners and regulators.
In addition to contracting these three stellar firms to conduct its due diligence background checks, the Citizenship by Investment Programme has engaged the services of Wealth X specifically for cases where enhanced financial due diligence is required.
