FAS Global expands global footprint to maximize service delivery to clients with complex losses
In a move that reflects the growth in demand for global forensic analysis, Cunningham Lindsey has expanded FAS Global, an independent division providing financial forensics and investigation services for a diverse range of industries, across a global footprint of offices located in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand.
Specializing in the quantification of business interruption and financial losses incident to insurance claims, FAS Global will work closely with Cunningham Lindsey’s Major and Complex Loss (MCL) team in order to offer a worldwide, seamless service that delivers better outcomes for insurers and policy holders, particularly in the areas of catastrophe and major loss quantification. FAS Global experts also work with the legal profession to assist in a wide range of contentious matters and disputes, and provide expert witness testimony.
Mark Thompson, head of FAS Global and located in the UK, said, “Business today is more inter-connected and global than ever before. The result is increasingly complex loss scenarios that may not have been envisaged when policy wordings were written or placed – often in parts of the world and circumstances that are very challenging. To unravel the story and to get under the skin of the financial aspects of a complex loss requires global reach, specialized forensic accounting skills and expertise in economic loss analysis and quantification.”
David Repinski, President and Chief Client Officer of Cunningham Lindsey Americas, adds, “We are very excited with the growth and development of this service offering. Our forensic analysts are available to assist clients with their growing claim complexities on losses that we’re adjusting as well as a stand-alone service basis.”
FAS Global’s clients include: insurers; lawyers; and public entities; and the range of services offered includes: analysis of financial aspects of insurance claims (business interruption and stock losses), expert witness work; business valuations; dispute resolution and fraud investigation.
