David Buxton

Co-Founder, Chief Executive Officer, Arachnys

Mr. Buxton set out to use his Oxford degree in Russian and his self-confessed geek mindset when he co-founded Arachnys, a digital platform powering due diligence research in emerging markets and across the globe.

Arachnys provides a tech platform used by global investment banks, international law firms, media organizations and NGOs to assess the risks of doing business in any country in the world. It is the only research tool specifically designed for due diligence and compliance professionals and has been described as one of the “most useful forensic IT programs for fraud and corruption investigations” by the Wall Street Journal.

Mr. Buxton is a former Control Risks investigator who worked on due diligence, anti-corruption and fraud investigations in Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and other former Soviet countries.
