CSMB understands that borrowers, investors, vendors, customers and employees all bring a degree of risk to your organization and to the clients you represent. Counting with sound background knowledge of those whom you do business with will put your organization and the clients you represent at a competitive advantage and will help you formulate the most accurate investment proposal for the risks you are willing to take. The potential risk of doing business with someone who you do not know exceeds basic economic loss; it may increase your legal liability, including civil law suits and regulatory action, having a direct impact on an organization’s reputation and ultimately in shareholder value.
