Kroll’s K2 to Buy Advisory Firm Led by U.S. Anti-Terror Sleuth

  • Jules Kroll’s investigative firm bolsters banking practice
  • Growth opportunity for Juan Zarate’s boutique consulting firm

K2 Intelligence, the corporate investigative firm co-founded by Jules Kroll, is acquiring the Financial Integrity Network, an advisory firm led by Juan Zarate, the former Treasury Department official who led U.S. efforts to halt terrorism financing following the Sept. 11 attacks.

The acquisition, which is expected to be completed and announced on Monday, gives K2 new expertise in banking and regulatory issues. The firm has already established itself in the U.S. and Europe as a player in corporate investigations, asset recovery and compliance. Terms of the deal, involving two private companies, weren’t disclosed.
