Association of Corporate Investigators
In 2017 a group of corporate investigation team heads identified a gap in the current universe of associations, catering for the needs of corporate professionals.
In particular, accredited qualifications and training, networking opportunities, and the availability of a central resource for members of the corporate investigations community were deemed to be lacking.
It was also felt that investigators, at whatever level of seniority and from whichever background, be it legal, audit or finance, could benefit from a wider coalition of activity.
Limited research carried out by investigation team heads amongst their own teams identified an appetite especially from graduates or junior members for an association, which promoted the professional standing of their role and an independent voice alongside their colleagues in other professional areas.
