K2 Intelligence and Financial Integrity Network (FIN) has unveiled CFIUS Advisory Services to help clients with investments, mergers and acquisitions that involve the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) and foreign investment review tools outside of the United States, the company announced on Wednesday.
“Our deep investigative acumen and independent fact-finding, coupled with professionals who helped shape these rules in government, will help clients across industries and sectors identify, mitigate, and monitor risks, encouraging more successful outcomes across the board,” said Robert Brenner, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Legal Officer of K2 Intelligence.
K2 Intelligence and FIN will help clients navigate new CFIUS regulations, focusing on investors and acquisition targets, to implement the Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act of 2018 (FIRRMA).
The advisory consists of a team of experts in the CFIUS process, U.S. regulations and the current national security review regimes in other countries, including the UK, Germany, Canada, and Australia. The new services will also help clients manage financial and economic security risks.
The expert team will assist clients in all the stages of the CFIUS review process, including transaction assessment, mitigation and remediation and monitoring and compliance. The advisory will include former U.S. government officials, former regulators, law enforcement, intelligence professionals, prosecutors, compliance officers, technology experts, forensic accountants and cybersecurity experts.
The team will bring extensive experience in assessing and mitigating risks stemming from a broad range of investment transactions involving defense, technology, artificial intelligence, energy, and other sectors.
“As national economic security concerns create more demands on investment and financial transparency, there is a premium on the ability of investors, banks, and commercial actors to understand and assess the security implications of their investments and to manage that risk proactively,” said Juan Zarate, co-founder and chairman of FIN.
