By performing our own comprehensive background investigations in-house, Corgentum is the first ODD consultant to offer investors a true, full-service solution.
New York, NY (PRWEB) March 11, 2013
Corgentum Consulting, the leading provider of the industry’s most comprehensive hedge fund operational due diligence reviews, today announced that the firm has launched a new background investigation service, expanding its operational due diligence (ODD) offerings.
Background investigations have become increasingly significant to assessing investment opportunities. According to a recent Corgentum survey of ODD analysts, more than 90 percent feel that background investigation is an integral part of the due diligence process.
The firm's investigative reviews will cover a comprehensive list of key background and reputational risks across five core areas, including criminal checks, litigation searches, regulatory inquiries, factual information and media searches.
"Traditionally, consultants have outsourced the background investigation process to stand-alone investigative firms or subcontractors, which incorporated a new risk for investors with regards to the quality and consistency of the work,” said Jason Scharfman, Managing Partner of Corgentum Consulting. “By performing our own comprehensive background investigations in-house, Corgentum is the first ODD consultant to offer investors a true, full-service solution. Our investor-focused reviews not only provide investigative data, but also actionable guidance as we assess and rate the risks to investors.”
Corgentum's new integrated, full-service solution offers investors and due diligence analysts several advantages, including:
- Guidance on which key persons and entities to investigate
- Customized investigations that review the unique background and reputation risks of each manager in context
- Streamlined background investigations, including coordinating the signing of required releases and direct interviews with management
Corgentum's approach to background research is a bottom-up, comprehensive data driven process. The background reviews are focused on providing investors with actionable fund manager recommendations to help them make better informed investment decisions.
