The global event for the insolvency and restructuring profession

Asset investigation and recovery in the digital age


Deep open source records, the Internet and social media should be your close companions when searching for assets. The panel will discuss how information available online can help to track and locate people and data, critical to an asset recovery campaign. Explore how materials available in public databases, dusty archives, chatrooms, websites and blockchains can be used to provide direction to identify, capture and monetise assets – all without implicating privacy or data protection regimes. Deployed alongside tried and tested judicially sanctioned asset recovery techniques, mining social media and information available on the web can help to develop a powerful evidentiary record for a court or other authority to consider when contemplating freezing or other relief.
