Global Asset Tracing

I-OnAsia locates and verifies hidden assets world-wide. Our team has identified and helped clients recover billions of dollars since the 1990s.

Asset tracing is an art form that I-OnAsia has mastered.  We have worked very substantial cases since Day One, tracing assets stolen out of national coffers, siphoned from family trusts and corporate accounts, and damages awarded by the courts.  Most importantly, we know how to achieve recoveries, without throwing good money after bad. 


I-OnAsia has successfully identified assets globally, helping clients to recover billions of dollars.  Our clients have included national governments, multi-lateral institutions, major lenders, and their legal counsel.

I-OnAsia's targets have included corrupt government officials, globally high profile high net worth individuals with assets distributed around the world, including through major tax havens, and defendants in civil lawsuits.  

Here are the reasons why clients typically choose I-OnAsia for Asset Tracing:

  • I-OnAsia's partners have successfully identified and recovered assets in the past.  We are a recognized global Asset Trace brand and have a twenty-track record of corporate success.  I-OnAsia's clients are happy to share their recommendations upon request.

  • Many of I-OnAsia's most seasoned Asset Trace specialists have backgrounds in law enforcement, finance, accounting, and other relevant industries.  Our team maintains an excellent global network of sources.  Clients are able to access the very best and most trusted global network through I-OnAsia.

  • I-OnAsia is partner-owned and partner-led, and we employ real people full time to perform investigations.  I-OnAsia's partners are directly involved in each case, exploring every angle and possibility for the identification of assets.  Our partners work closely with our full team of in-house resources in a budget conscious and effective manner: collecting information, analyzing the results, and then investigating new leads as they are found, step by careful-step.  (This is a very different operational approach from that used by many of our competitors, who simply contract work out and mark it up.)

  • I-OnAsia has superior expertise in Asia.  This goes beyond the concentration of our employees in the region.  Our employees are also better exercised, and are busy every day with a large volume of standard and complex assignments, I-OnAsia's team sees more client issues and has a better capacity to handle tomorrow's assignments. 

We have pursued multi-billion dollar targets.  We understand the differences in pursuing large assets.

We fully understand the lengths to which corporate secretarial firms will go to obfuscate asset control.  (We have helped to put corporate secretaries who have backdated documents and participated in other corrupt schemes in jail.).


We have cracked fraud networks abusing Asia's globally-connected banking system, and have great sources close to global financial institutions.


We understand how money is moved non-traditionally including with casino chips or via hawala networks.


We have hunted for assets distributed through family networks, or funneled through off-balance sheet financial arrangements.


We have searched for assets across more than one country's borders, straddling the pros and cons of recovery from each jurisdiction.

Asset Traces are typically phased approaches.  Initial phases of inquiry often include a review of existing documentation for leads, searches for public records and financial data, and initial interviews of sources with likely knowledge of the whereabouts of assets. 

Satisfied clients frequently say that the we are a valuable source information.
