ABOUT S-RM

S-RM is a global intelligence and cyber security consultancy. Since 2005, we’ve helped companies, governments and private individuals solve some of their most complex challenges.

Our Corporate Intelligence division uses the latest research and intelligence-gathering techniques to investigate how companies and individuals really do business in today’s world. We work with some of the most prominent and sophisticated organisations to help them understand partners, customers, assets and territories across the globe – the healthcare company a private equity firm wants to invest in; the prospective client a bank wants to onboard; the market a multinational wants to enter. We also provide specialised investigative support to law firms, businesses and individuals in contentious situations such as litigation, commercial disputes and internal investigations. From our offices in London, New York, Washington DC, Rio de Janeiro, Hong Kong and Cape Town, we deliver critical insights from every country across the world. Further information about each of our five Corporate Intelligence practice areas can be found on our website: Compliance Due Diligence, Deal Advisory, Disputes & Investigations, ESG and Strategic Intelligence.

No day is the same, and there are incredible opportunities to learn. We’re proud to say our investigative training is amongst the best in the industry. You’ll have some of the brightest colleagues to support you – former journalists, economists, lawyers, scientists, military and police officers. Collectively, our people speak more than 40 languages.
