Personalised due diligence reports for professional athletes, TV personalities and social media icons. Don’t put your name to a company or brand without doing your research.
Coopers Due Diligence Consulting are fully aware how hard professional athletes, TV personalities and social media icons work to protect their reputations, so when you or your representation are approached to become a brand ambassador, sponsor or advertise on behalf of a company, how much research do you or your representatives actually carry out? The lure of a lucrative advertising contract can seem harmless enough but if that company fails or is involved in fraud how much is your reputation worth!
CDDC are a research company that does deep dive background searches into alternative investment and private equity companies. We take an in-depth look at the company overview, structure, trading results, key personnel and complaints history. We take this information and prepare a report that can help you as a celebrity make a fully informed decision prior to signing a contract that will align you, your name and your personal brand with that company for many years to come.
HOW IT WORKS.
We will agree our fee based on the level of research you wish us to carry out. For example. An online education company with limited commercial exposure will only take a minimal amount of research. Whereas a luxury real estate development could take much longer and involve site visits.
Once we have signed terms of business, we will ask you to provide any supporting documentation that you may have received, along with the contact details of the representative from the company offering you the advertising contract. We will then forward a bespoke due diligence questionnaire to them with a request for additional information. We are happy to sign Non-Disclosure Agreements’ from both you and the prospective company, as your confidentiality is paramount to us as a company. We consider our reputation as important as yours!
At this point we will be able to give you an accurate timeframe in which we can compile your due diligence report.
The report will begin with an executive summary of our findings. This section will raise any red-flags, areas of concern as well as any positive outcomes. This will be followed by a detailed breakdown of how we came to our conclusions, questions raised, and research centers used. Our due diligence reports are concise and accurate; however, we try to stay away from industry jargon and terminology. The reports are designed to help you to make a fully informed contractual decision before putting your reputation at risk.
WHY IS DUE DILIGENCE SO IMPORTANT?
CDDC are certain that you will have experienced lawyers looking over your contracts, highlighting any pitfalls, areas of risk from a legal standpoint and making sure you are protected in any event that contractual issues arise. We position ourselves as an additional layer of protection. Having over 2 decades of experience in the alternative investment financial sector we have researched hundreds of projects in minute detail. In the last few years we have seen scandals destroy the reputations of well-known celebrities that allowed themselves to be dragged into tax avoidance schemes that included labeling themselves as second hand car sales men through to movie investment schemes. In March of 2019 the findings of the Harlequin Hotels and resorts report were made public. The innocent celebrities acting as brand ambassadors could have avoided any potential embarrassment by carrying out even some basic due diligence. Also, in early 2019 Amazon prime launched the documentary FYRE, this compelling story outlined the debacle that became the infamous FYRE festival. Numerous entertainment stars and social media influencers were named as celebrity endorsers for this catastrophic failure potentially causing irreparable reputational risk.

I actually came across David as a financial consultant and he became my adviser when I lived in Tokyo in 2010. He has advised me ever since. However, I undertook his consulting services last year when I had been offered a job with an alternative investment company. I asked him to carry out due diligence on them to see If I would consider working for them. I turned down the job based on his findings.
