The Usefulness of Due Diligence in Risk Management In the investment business, as well as the lending business, due diligence is typically carried out as part of the financial risk assessment of an investment, acquisition, or before a lender loans out his/her money. The process of conducting an investigation of a business entity or of an individual before signing an agreement and carried out with prudence is known as due diligence. Although the nature may be voluntary, the process of due diligence has a legal face. The establishment of due diligence is based on the theory that careful and prudent investigation carried about on a business entity or on an individual can help a lot in the decision-making of investors and lenders through the quality of information that was obtained from the investigation process. The type of investigation has technical and financial components, like evaluating on the design of a proposed project, studying all the contracts to ascertain that all correct provisions are there, which are provisions for risk management and risk allocation. Due diligence can also be applied in the evaluation of the types of risks facing a business or project at a particular point in time. Due diligence is useful in both ways – for the business entity or individual who is applying for a loan or for the financial investor or lender who needs a risk profile to allocate potential risks in the contract before agreeing to the loan contract. The components of risk profile includes the following: potential causes of risk, potential consequences resulting from the risk, adequacy of the control environment operating around the risk, and adequacy of the quality and quantity of information available to monitor the control environment operating around the risk. The significance of risk profiling is that it provides awareness of the different forms of risks (technological, sovereign, political, economic, etc) which can affect the investment during the course of arriving in a business decision.

Risk management is a procedure in which all types of risks, in a business venture, is identified, assessed and prioritized or classified and when done, that signals the application of resources which will be dependent on the outcome of the risk management process, so that resources can be minimized, monitor, and controlled. The objective of risk management is to see to it that the element of uncertainty does not sidetrack the business undertaking and its goals. In an ideal risk management, a prioritization procedure is applied such that the risks with greatest loss or impact and greatest probability of occurring are handled first and the risks with lower probability of occurrence and lower loss are handled in descending order. Risk management also includes allocating resources which is the prime basis in establishing opportunity cost, which is an alternative cost considered in undertaking a business investment.Interesting Research on Businesses – What You Didn’t Know
