BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER
Look at other people on this deal and you will see many of those same names on prior deals. Sometimes you see six or eight people that are on deals over and over. Then over time you see a name or two drop off. Look up those names that dropped off. Did they loose interest in working with this group? Or did they get pinged by regulatory authorities? That often tells you the kind of people you are dealing with on the current deal.
