OUR RESULTS MAKE AN IMPACT FOR INVESTORS

LOFFCO provides manager due diligence, manager selection, background checks, portfolio monitoring, and expert witness services.

Trade Finance Funds

LOFFCO works on behalf of investors to evaluate trade finance and structured finance funds. Our work has uncovered numerous instances of fraud and embezzlement, typically via straw borrowers, and the blatant overstating and mismarking of returns. We have also identified a particular business model that is an inherent risk for investors. Our analysis has successfully identified over $1.1 billion of trade finance fund fraud. Contact us for more information.

 

Private Equity in Africa

Our consultants have experience working in emerging and frontier markets. We have successfully worked on behalf of clients to expose fraudulent activity at private equity funds based in California and Mauritius. Both firms were found to have serious red flags which would be hard to identify for the average investor. Our team provided analysis to enable the early detection of fraud at the $1 billion sub-advisor that touted US insurers and other institutions as its investors.

 

Real Estate Investment Schemes

Many commercial lending, private mortgage and hard-money investments are hard to verify and rely on private valuations from the portfolio manager. We provide independent due diligence and risk assessments on a wide array of real estate fund strategies to ensure your assets are in the hands of strong fiduciaries. Our analysis is responsible for exposing a $1.2 billion investment fraud based in New Jersey.

 

Oil and Gas Investments

Promises of high returns and tax benefits often lure unsuspecting investors into oil and gas royalty schemes. We have created exceptional value with our energy related mandates and helped investors to avoid millions of dollars in losses. Our history as a due diligence provider for some of the world’s largest energy investors gives us unique insights to monitor your private energy managers.

 

US Private Equity

In many instances, investors take the comfort of developed markets as a mitigant to the risk of fraud. We believe that this false sense of security is what leads to the high level of fraud in US markets, particularly related to private investing. Our consultants analyze and assess private equity managers to protect investors from losses. We currently have successful pending actions from 2021 stemming from our analysis on US-based private equity managers.

 

Direct Lending Schemes

With significant experience in the early detection of risks in direct lending portfolios, our firm is uniquely positioned to review and analyze your private fixed income managers. Extensive UCC checks, returns comparisons, and other covert techniques have led to highly valuable risk mitigation for our clients. Contact us to learn more.
