Strategic Corporate Investigations, Reputational Due Diligence and Background Check: Hong Kong, China and SE Asia

Why Choose Veriton for Your Background Check and Corporate Investigations?

Veriton Investigations was founded by an ex Hong Kong Police superintendent, Chris Wilson.   He is supported by a dedicated team of professionals. Veriton can meet your corporate investigation requirements in Hong Kong, Macau, China as well as other parts of SE Asia.  Apart from routine investigations, we are specialists in all types of background check and reputational due diligence.


Most Veriton investigators in Hong Kong, as well as other parts of SE Asia, are ex-police.  In addition, they have many years experience in the private sector.

Our researchers are fluent in Cantonese, Mandarin and English. They receive on-going training in current database and research techniques.


Our service is prompt and reliable.  However, we take time at the beginning of every corporate investigation to understand how best to mitigate your business risks.

Ordinarily, all research, background check and investigative work are documented in a comprehensive, customized report.


Whenever possible, we phase corporate investigations to provide cost-effective solutions.

Ultimately, this allows you to better plan budgets and reassess deliverables as your project progresses.

Who Are We?

Before co-founding Veriton Investigations in 2014, Chris spent 35 years with the Hong Kong Police.  He lead the Police’s Counter Terrorism and Internal Security (CTIS) division after the 9-11 attacks and ran the Criminal Intelligence Analysis Training Course for several years.  He headed teams dealing with everything from kidnappings to Triad-related crime.

Later, his corporate skills were honed with a US-owned casino in Macau.  Here, he oversaw all corporate investigations and due diligence initiatives in support of the Corporate Compliance Program.

After a life-time in Hong Kong, Chris has established a strong network of partners in the field of investigations and security.

Types of Background Check

International Background Check

What constitutes a background check? Maybe you simply need a pre-employment check? Perhaps you are wondering if a potential business partner has a criminal record or has been bankrupt?

Our criminal record checks service is not limited to Hong Kong and China. For example, more unusual countries include Palau, the Bahamas, the Federated States of Micronesia and the Philippines. TAT is dependent on jurisdiction.

Hong Kong Company Check

Basic background check for Hong Kong companies can be conducted quickly and reasonably. For incomplete names, we undertake preliminary research to fully identify an entity. Afterward, with precise details, it is also then possible to check further records with the Hong Kong Business Registration Office.

Subsequently, should you need to visualize the relationships between a network of companies, we can also provide link chart analysis.  Link charting is a speciality of Veriton Investigations.

China Company Check

Are you experiencing problems with a partner company in China?

Nowadays, less corporate data is being made available by the Chinese government.  Therefore, standard computer generated checks can no longer support your business risk assessments.

In short, our background check for a China company is conducted by people – not computers.

Due Diligence on Macau Triad


“Once again, thanks a lot for your work. This was one of the best intelligence-based products that I have seen in a long time. 

You and your team clearly know Macau very well. I’m very happy with the content of the report and especially the fast turnaround. In short, a great analysis on this guy. Very good job!”

Mistreatment of Dogs Investigation


“I have now had an opportunity to go over your report. I have to say, and without sounding big headed I hope, I thought I prepare well structured, detailed and comprehensive reports!  However, I have to hold my hands up and say this is one of the best, most well-written reports I have had the pleasure of receiving from a fellow investigator.

So well done!”

Pyramid Fraud Investigation


“Many thanks for this thorough investigation. It is exactly what we were looking for. As a result, our worst fears were confirmed.  However, with what you have uncovered, we should be able to get our lawyers to stop this immediately.

Incidentally, your investigator that attended the fraudulent product briefing in Hong Kong did a really great job. The paper evidence that shows the criminal nature of the fake scheme was especially useful.”
