The complexity of financial systems and globalisation of business processes challenge an organisation’s efforts to preserve and analyse transactional data. As a result, it is more difficult to identify relevant transactions specific to a litigation and to prevent and detect fraud.

The Data & Analytics (D&A) team at FTI Consulting delivers strategic business solutions to clients requiring in-depth analysis of large, disparate sets of financial, operational and transactional data. Our professionals – respected experts in technology, finance, forensic accounting and the law – map relationships among various systems and geographies, search for specific transactions, and uncover patterns that may signal fraudulent activity.

The identification and investigation of the fraud is only the beginning of the mitigation process. FTI Consulting also has the capability to identify potential assets that may be linked to fraud. We have worked with trustees and other parties to recover hundreds of millions of dollars in fraudulently held assets.

Specifically, our process to help our clients involves identifying, acquiring and normalising relevant data. We then identify the relationships between multiple sources and data points. Using this information, we design and implement appropriate tests and triggers for suspect transactions. Finally, we provide a platform for the review and investigation of such transactions among interested parties, including experts, corporate and outside counsel, and co-defendants.

We produce simple but detailed visualisations from complex data sources, making it easier to identify abnormalities. Visualisation of complex information offers clients a clearer sense of the problem versus the confusion caused by tables of numbers. The D&A team uses several software programmes to perform visualisations, including Tableau.

System Audits/IT Due Diligence

The Data & Analytics (D&A) team performs system audits and IT due-diligence, often as part of the M&A process. Independent, third-party due-diligence on complex, low-latency, high-frequency, transactional IT environments has become crucial in today’s data-intensive industries.
