Global Risk Profile opens a subsidiary in France

Global Risk Profile, a Swiss company specializing in the field of Due Diligence, expands internationally with the opening of its French subsidiary. Pierre Memheld, Head of the Master of Business Intelligence at the University of Strasbourg, was appointed Director General of Global Risk Profile France.

Global Risk Profile France was created to support Law “Sapin II” in tackling risks associated with money laundering and corruption. In force since December 2016, this regulation presents stricter provisions relating to transparency, the fight against corruption and the modernization of the business environment. Companies with a turnover of more than EUR 100 million and more than 500 employees must now implement a compliance system meeting Law “Sapin II” guidelines. Failure to do so will result in administrative fines and public sanctions.

Joël Pastre, CEO of Global Risk Profile, highlights the significance of this new subsidiary: “The opening of our subsidiary in France bring us closer to our clients, helping them to comply with new regulations and efficiently mitigate business-related risks through state-of-the-art Due Diligence solutions”.

Pierre Memheld was appointed Director General of the newly created subsidiary, in the view of his vast experience in risk management and international market development.
