RAI was formed in 1953 by former agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Their mission was to provide the private sector with the same level of high quality investigative services that the FBI provides in the public sector. In the years since its formation, the mission at RAI has not changed.

Over the past six decades, RAI has grown into an international investigative firm with seamless coverage in over 140 countries worldwide. Our experienced network of over 200 affiliates is unmatched in the industry.

RAI is a compliance-driven firm that works directly with clients to develop legally compliant investigative programs.
