Your ability to have a detailed asset and liability summary is a very powerful tool that will give you an edge.

The most prized asset is cold hard cash. This will be found in banks, credit unions, and brokerage firms. This type of asset is the most sought-after because it is the easiest to garnish. Intelligence West has located millions of dollars of cold hard cash for many satisfied clients.

The second most valuable type of assets will be real estate holdings which include houses, condominiums, vacant land, or commercial property. The current values of these properties are important information and detailed in each report summary.

Hidden Assets

A comprehensive reporting of an individual’s business affiliations may reveal shell companies. These shell companies have no real business purpose other than to hide assets.

An asset report will show all corporations or LLCs associated with an individual. If various entities show up with no known business telephone numbers or business operations then there is a good chance these entities may be used simply to hide or hold assets.


Investigative asset reports are crucial tools for most pre-litigation matters. Knowing a subject’s worth or liability details gives one the ability to create an accurate evaluation and plan of action.
