As a fund manager, you may well find the detective work of investor due diligence onerous and frustrating, especially if you're under pressure to get the results quickly. ​

So you need an administrator that not only knows the legal requirements around investor due diligence, but can get hold of the necessary information and process it at speed. ​​

With a network of specialists in all major jurisdictions, we offer an interconnected global compliance service. Local experts manage Know Your Client (KYC) and anti-money laundering (AML) requirements for your investors around the world, coordinated centrally by your dedicated Vistra team. This creates a fast, well-organised service, sensitive to everyone’s needs. ​

But our due diligence work extends beyond the expertise of our teams. As part of our service to the wider corporate world, our Global AML platform brings together searches on individuals, as well as companies and the key decision-makers behind them, providing you with instant results on politically exposed persons (PEPs), sanctions and adverse media checks.​

So, with the combined reach of our due diligence expertise and technology, you can be sure that no one is using your operations for nefarious purposes – and that this is absolutely apparent to the authorities who need to know.

To take advantage of the global talent pool, companies are increasingly offering stock equity to attract and retain employees. The equity is usually awarded at a low cost in a pre-IPO phase, and in some cases involves globally mobile employees. Granting stock options to expatriate employees can introduce important tax obligations and risks in the home and host countries that are sometimes not fully understood by multinational employers.
