Every case begins in shadow. A scattering of details, barely discernable, their connections unknown.

What’s needed is light, or better, clarity.

We’re Ultramarine. We provide clarity.

Who We Are

When others offer a research template, we tell stories.

Our team comes from careers in investigative reporting, academia, and finance. The result is a vigorously sourced analysis grounded in defensible facts and actionable conclusions – explained with journalistic flair.

What We Do

While some amass facts, we see constellations, and a way forward.

We’re a licensed and insured investigative collective with global reach. We provide bespoke domestic and international research to public and private organizations.

We contextualize data. We find people. We trace assets. We identify vulnerabilities. We gather documents and tell you what they mean.

What We Know

Ultramarine has decades of investigative experience in the San Francisco Bay Area and abroad, with resources in Asia, Europe, South America, and Africa.

We have an especially deep expertise in Macau, the world’s largest gaming market, and a key transit point for money movement across Asia. We specialize in document and source-based investigations across the Pacific Rim, from Hong Kong and Mainland China to Japan, Singapore, and the Philippines.
