Due Diligence

Investment due diligence

We have a comprehensive due diligence process for sourcing, screening and monitoring alternative investments, such as new partnership investments, co-investments and secondary opportunities. We track our clients’ interest level, relative to their specific strategy for each opportunity as it progresses through our investment screening process. We source opportunities on a global basis, covering all sub-strategies, and developed and emerging markets including the Americas, Europe and Asia.

Operational due diligence

To address increasing client needs in the area of operational due diligence, we focus on regulatory matters and the quality of key support services such as custodians, auditors, legal counsel and back office service providers. We perform background checks on key personnel against regulatory and law enforcement databases worldwide. In addition, as part of our back office due diligence efforts, we focus on cash controls and management, accounting/financial operations, valuation procedures, quality of reporting, auditing, compliance and disaster preparedness.
