Related party transactions - Hudson Labs datasets

A related party is an accounting concept that refers to an entity that is not independent of the company. Examples of related parties include both the CEO’s family and any subsidiaries or equity investees. Related party transactions are not arm's-length, which means participating entities do not always charge market rates. Affiliate transactions can also create opportunities for fraud, as described in our Red Flag Guide

Hudson Labs uses proprietary AI models to identify higher risk related party transactions and assess the concentration of related party risk across U.S. issuers. The use of language models means we can identify related party transactions, regardless of the wording or key words and assess relative severity, facilitating advanced due diligence and market monitoring.

Coverage universe: U.S. issuers filing a 10-K or 10-Q

Coverage initiation date: Jan 1, 2019

Screen for companies with concentrated related party risk

Find the related party risk screen on the "Ideas" page of the Hudson Labs platform.

Screen inclusion criteria: Concentrated related party risk as assessed over the most recent four quarters. Where a company has not filed at least four quarterly filings, we extrapolate. 

“Concentrated risk” is assessed by Hudson Labs AI. The model is assessing risk based on the density/frequency of related party disclosure, the existence of specifics/numbers and the existence of high risk accounts (revenue, accounts receivable etc), among other items. This assessment is approximate.
