Radial Map

Instant visual insights about people and company connections

Radial Maps are interactive visual maps to extract and analyse connections between people and companies. Users can select entities and relationships in a map, and conveniently drill down for more information. Analysis can also be deepened conveniently by expanding on entities to show the next layer of connections.

The information in Radial Maps can be saved and exported both as high-resolution images or data spreadsheets.



Applicable Uses

Interconnection Map

A powerful way to identify associates and indirect influence


Interconnection Maps identify how people and companies could be connected directly or through intermediate connections. They answer the question: “How are these people and companies connected?”

Users can interconnect up to 10 people or companies at a time. The degree of separation may also be adjusted by a user to show less or more indirect paths.

Investee Companies Search

Fastest way to discover a person’s or company’s ownership interests

Handshakes Investee Companies Search is the fastest way to discover a person’s or company’s ownership interests in Singaporean and Malaysian companies. It is the perfect complement to our widely used Legal Beneficial Ownership (LBO) Search. While the LBO search uncovers the layers of beneficial ownership behind a company, Investee Companies Search reveals all ownership interests that a person or company holds.

“What companies do my business partners own?”
“How much share ownership assets does this company have?”
“How can I discover and value effective interest in indirectly owned companies?”
If you’ve ever asked these questions, then a Handshakes Investee Companies Search can help you.
Providing the answers in a quick and cost-efficient manner, our intelligent algorithms drill through each layer of shareholding information to exhaustively traverse all possible layers of direct and indirect interests of a subject for:
1) Vested and deemed ownerships and shareholdings of an individual
2) Primary and secondary end corporations and subsidiaries of a company
The results are generated instantly and visualised as an interactive hierarchy chart for you to manipulate and analyse.

Sample Case

39 companies, 5 layers deep, mapped out in 1 second.
