In 1972, Jules Kroll founded a company specializing in investigative and security services and risk mitigation counseling. By the 1990s, Kroll had built a reputation as Wall Street's “private eye,” growing into a full-service global risk consulting company, adding capabilities that complemented its traditional investigative and intelligence expertise.


In August 2010, Kroll was acquired by Altegrity, Inc., a provider of information solutions. Altegrity’s family of companies includes USIS and HireRight. It is principally owned by Providence Equity Partners.

Today, Kroll, the world's leading risk consulting company, provides a broad range of investigative, intelligence, financial, security, technology and supplier management services to help clients reduce risks, solve problems and capitalize on opportunities. Headquartered in New York with offices in 55 cities across 26 countries, Kroll has a multidisciplinary team of nearly 2,300 employees and serves a global clientele of law firms, financial institutions, corporations, non-profit institutions, government agencies and individuals.
