Strategic International Prospecting

01. Introduction

The ability to conduct international prospect research is an important tool in the researcher's toolkit. As wealth around the world continues to grow and globalisation allows us to share our organisational visions internationally, you might be asked to research a prospect in a location outside your own country. This chapter will provide you with tips and resources for conducting international prospect research and guidance on researching prospects from diverse countries and cultures respectfully and effectively.

Additional topics include:

  • Exploring and understanding differences in the availability of information.
  • Identifying and valuing wealth indicators from around the world.
  • International laws, regulations and philanthropic models that might impact your research.
  • Scope and viability of international research.

Ultimately, this chapter aims to provide you with the expertise to build relationships with anyone who connects with your organisation's mission.
