Tangible Assets InvestigationTangible Assets Investigation can come in many different forms. When a full-scale asset search has begun, tangible assets are a major part of the discovery equation. ASG’s experienced professionals also conduct tangible assets investigations independent of larger asset investigations for divorce proceedings, executive background checks, litigation, negotiations, investments, and more.

Types of Tangible Assets

Tangible assets are assets that have a physical form. When you hire a private investigator to conduct a tangible assets investigation, you want to know what exists out there in someone else’s name, or what financial interests they have, whether they’re being forthcoming about the information or not. Tangible assets can include:

  • Cash
  • Homes (personal or investment real estate)
  • Land or property
  • Vehicles (cars, aircraft, watercraft)
  • Equipment
  • Machinery
  • Inventory
  • Business ownership (corporations, LLPs, LLCs, or otherwise)
  • Checking and savings accounts (personal and business)
  • Offshore accounts
  • Brokerage and investment accounts
  • IRAs and retirement accounts
  • Stocks and bonds

Along with information about these tangible assets, the private search will also reveal details about whether a person is living with judgments, bankruptcies, or liens. Assets and debts are a major part of the decision-making process where financial interests are concerned. The results gathered during the tangible assets search will not only identify accounts, but typically include the locations and approximate balances of said accounts.

Reasons to Conduct a Tangible Assets Investigation

A person’s transparency about their assets (or lack thereof) typically makes their level of trustworthiness quite clear, especially if they have gone to great lengths to conceal some of their assets.

Why are the assets of another person any business of yours? Consider this scenario: You’re getting a divorce and your spouse has allegedly claimed all assets, but something seems fishy. Your private investigator – whether hired by you personally or your divorce attorney – can seek out undisclosed bank accounts, stocks and retirement accounts, property, and so much more.

Or perhaps you’re considering making a business deal and the person you’re partnering up with claims to be free and clear of all encumbrances. However, before or during negotiations, your private investigator discovers that the potential partner is up to their eyeballs in debt or shady business dealings.

A tangible assets investigation gives you, your attorney, or your business the information needed to make an informed decision before pursuing legal action or signing a contract.
