Business rescue & recovery

Business threats that materialize unexpectedly can have a severe impact on business operations, incur unbudgeted costs and extend audit enquiries.

Whether caused by a project failure, an unexpected staff move, or some other unplanned event, Richmond Consulting Group has the experienced resources to alleviate the impact during a recovery or leadership transition period.


Business rescue and recovery

Planning for the worst and having a contingency plan are two complex tasks that a number of organizations neglect. At Richmond Consulting Group, we have understood that any asset finance organization may find itself in a damage control situation at some point. When this occurs, the organization will need to address very specific issues in a swift and competent manner to keep operations in controls and to protect employees, customers and shareholders from further damage.

Over the years, we have helped a number of global asset finance organizations, in a confidential manner, navigating through operational, financial, fraud-related and conflictual situations.

Should your organization face an existing situation or plan for an hypothetical scenario, we can assist in a rapid and confidential manner.
