Our Services

We acquire our information through Freedom of Information requests to various government agencies and publicly available databases posted by governments and other agencies. Once we identify unclaimed assets for potential clients, we locate and contact the beneficiaries of these assets.

WHY ASSETS GO ASTRAY

Today’s business environment is hectic, organizations are going through acquisitions, divestitures, downsizing and restructuring. In this busy environment assets can circumvent Companies’ controls.

With regards to individuals, people lose track of assets due to moves or death where the Estate is unaware of entitlement to funds. Sometimes individuals are allocated assets that they are not aware of.

OUR RECOVERY PROCESS

The next step is to sign a document which authorizes E.B. Rich Research to work with the source of the unclaimed assets on our Client’s behalf specifically regarding the outstanding amounts.
