Franchise Due Diligence

As your Due Diligence provider, we recognize that your reputation is only as good as your franchisees. We partner with you to verify the existence and integrity of potential franchisee partners and identify potential risks to your engagement. With worldwide capabilities, emerging markets are our specialty. Let us help you know your franchise partners and provide intelligence you can rely on to make important conclusions about the suitability of a potential partner. We offer quick turnaround times for time-sensitive business decisions, and our goal is always to minimize potential harm to your company’s reputation.

Third-Party Risk Management

The reputation, integrity, and ultimately the success of your business increasingly depends upon developing and maintaining the confidence and trust of your clients, investors, and regulators. Conducting proper Due Diligence on potential vendors is essential to minimizing fraud, managing risk, and maintaining compliance with regulations such as the USA Patriot Act, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), Sarbanes-Oxley, and others. NFC can assist our clients in screening their third-party vendors to identify any adverse information or potential ties to government officials, also known as Politically Exposed Persons or PEPs.
