Ground Truth gives you an alternative to the legacy approach to Corporate Intelligence and Investigations

For any intelligence or investigations requirement, we match you directly to the best-fit independent practitioner, on the ground, anywhere in the world. We call them our Network Partners.

This could be for a sensitive, strategic project where you need world-class insight and expertise, or a simple document retrieval from a public registry.

Network Partners could be anywhere — seasoned independent investigators in London or New York, or someone with the right local knowledge and contacts in Bogotá, Brussels, Manila or Mumbai.

Our online platform makes it very quick for you to engage the best local resource and get going.

But don’t worry, the Ground Truth team is always there to help if you need us.

Think of us as facilitators, helping you get the best from your Network Partner.

All the information goes through the platform, ensuring maximum data privacy and security. You can get detailed, formal reporting or raw, real-time intelligence.

We have over a thousand Network Partners — so no matter what your requirement is, and where in the world you need it from, we have the best-fit resource for you. The network is curated, invitation-only and all Network Partners are subject to thorough diligence, compliance and training procedures.

This new, transparent approach to gathering information gives you maximum control over the process. You know exactly who is getting the information and how they are doing it. No more mystery.
