Manager Research

JSR understands the amount of risk involved when selecting a fund manager. The need for a background investigation by an independent party has become the expectation rather than the exception. Our thorough knowledge of public records ensures that your report is complete and specific to your subject of investigation.

Our research is comprised of a multi-jurisdictional search on all Fund Managers. On every investigation we send our abstractors to counties domestically to gather public record research. This process ensures that areas in which your subject has previously lived are covered, as many records are filed on the county level only. We enhance our product by using the most extensive database sources in the industry, providing media searches, officer/director searches, and nationwide bankruptcy, tax liens, and judgments. Provided we receive the necessary documentation, we confirm the subject's biographical information.

We recommend, but are not limited to, the following list of investigative services:

  • Multi-County “Direct” Courthouse Research

Background Checks

Our goal at JSR is to provide our clients with the critical information they must have to make educated hiring decisions. Hiring the best people is vital to the success of any business, especially in today’s ever changing job markets. Our industry leading expertise and technology help organizations identify risks. The risks can be appearing as false resumes or terminations and as well as critical areas such as criminal convictions.

If you hire the wrong person it can open doors to work-related crimes and violence. These not only cost you in litigation but also cost you the stable, reliable employees leaving.

We recommend the following services in your pre-screening process:

  • Criminal Checks – State and Federal
  • Social Security Verification
  • Education Verification
  • Employment Verification – Past and Present Employers

Our research includes sending our abstractors to the courthouse in the counties in which your prospect lived. We do not rely strictly on internet data base information.

Depending on your overall staffing needs, our turn-around time is typically 2 – 4 business days.

JSR can tailor your reports to your company’s policies and practices.
