Due diligence assessments

End date

MannionDaniels have developed a due diligence methodology to allow assessments to be completed in a way that is both robust, proportionate, and collaborative.

Working with our partners we created tailored due diligence solutions capable of addressing the risk appetite and profile of each project individually. Our assessments have been applied across more than 60 countries worldwide, and over 1000 organisations. We have worked with organisations of all sizes and complexities, from the smallest grassroots bodies to the largest INGOs and multilateral organisations.
