Hedge Fund Investigative Due Diligence Services
Providing clients with the critical information they need to make informed business and investment decisions.
Investors in hedge funds and other alternative investments employ investigative due diligence to probe the track records and backgrounds of funds and fund managers. BDO Consulting provides clients with the critical information needed to make informed business and investment decisions.
Questions to Consider
- How much independent information do you have about the background, experience or credentials of hedge fund managers?
- Does the hedge fund have a genuine independent auditor and administrator?
- Do you know whether the managers of the fund have other business interests?
- Do you know whether the hedge fund or its managers have a history of litigation with investors or employees?
- Are there indications that the managers have personal financial problems?
