DUE DILIGENCE: meaning and examples
Today we will finish our series of Vitamins related to the word DUE
with a business expression. Our readers who are accountants or lawyers may be familiar with the concept or the expression.
Today's word is
: due diligence
It refers to
: the process of investigating the details of a potential investment or business partnership, such as an examination of a company's operations and management and the verification of material facts or possible risks.
Adequate due diligence
on new and existing customers is essential when considering potential investments.
Most successful investors carry out due diligence
on a monthly basis in order to reduce the risk factor of their investments.

We will do more accounting and business expressions in future Daily Vitamins.
