Compliance and intelligence solutions to assess and mitigate national security and CFIUS risks in M&A

K2 Intelligence/Financial Integrity Network


In the face of the expanded Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) authorities, there is a substantial premium for investors and businesses to more effectively manage potential national security and CFIUS risks that could delay or hinder transactions. In this webinar our experts will discuss the implications of the new CFIUS and Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act (FIRRMA) regulations for M&A and other foreign investment, and how best to assess and mitigate those risks through business intelligence and the development of effective compliance and mitigation frameworks, including: 

  • Key changes to CFIUS and recent developments with the enactment of FIRRMA
  • Impact on M&A and private equity transactions and on important sectors such as technology, fintech, artificial intelligence, healthcare and real estate
  • Utilising third-party providers to identify threats and vulnerabilities to foreign investment transactions
  • Implementing efficient compliance and mitigation solution that effectively respond to CFIUS demands and concerns in both the near and long term
