In a move that reflects the growth in demand for global, forensic analysis, Cunningham Lindsey has launched FAS Global – offering a worldwide, seamless service that delivers better outcomes for insurers and policyholders.
Mark Thompson, head of FAS Global said:
“Business today is more inter-connected and global than ever before. The result is increasingly complex loss scenarios that may not have been envisaged when policy wordings were written or placed – often in parts of the world and circumstances that are very challenging. To unravel the story and to get under the skin of the financial aspects of a complex loss requires global reach, specialised forensic accounting skills and expertise in economic loss analysis and quantification.
“FAS Global is able to do just that, with a global footprint and offices in the United States, Canada, Brazil, United Kingdom, Middle East, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand. The combination of Cunningham Lindsey’s Major and Complex Loss business and FAS Global creates the best of both worlds, so that our clients know they will be able to access the right expertise, in the right place, at the right time.”
Matthew Griffin, Head of FAS Global UK said:
“In the UK, our office has grown threefold in the past 18 months, demonstrating the increased demand for forensic auditing techniques and the services we provide. Most importantly our services offer a good return on investment for our clients, helping them to control the cost of complex claims and, at the same time getting businesses back on their feet faster.”
FAS Global’s clients include: insurers; lawyers; and public entities; and the range of services offered includes: analysis of financial aspects of insurance claims (business interruption and stock losses), expert witness work; business valuations; dispute resolution and fraud investigation.
