Foreign Investment Risk Assessment Tool


Gryphon uses a risk assessment model to help your analysts screen transactions of interest involving foreign investors and U.S. firms with national security equities.


Gryphon tracks foreign direct investments, acquisitions, and mergers across market sectors using a national security risk factor analysis model. The tool optimizes transaction screening by integrating sensitive but unclassified data sources and highlighting transactions not voluntarily filed with the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS). By reviewing market data outside of CFIUS, Gryphon provides foreign investment risk assessments with a more comprehensive understanding of ultimate beneficiary ownership (UBO).


  • Real-time transaction risk assessments on all public mergers and acquisitions (involving U.S. target firms and foreign acquirers). Historical records date back to January 2010
  • Custom dashboards for individual users to flag transactions of interest
