Areas of Focus

Hedge Fund & Private Equity Fund Operational Due Diligence Since 2009

A few areas PRISM focuses on:

Since PRISM’s due diligence process consists of various methods and hundreds of steps dependent on a decision tree, here are just a few operational areas that an ODD will evaluate.

MANAGEMENT TEAMS AND PEOPLE

Human resources and management teams are the key to the success of any company. Human capital, experience, qualifications, and turnover are assessed during every review.

OPERATIONS, ACCOUNTING, VALUATION, CASH 

Trade execution, financing, settlement, cash movements, and reconciliations are reviewed; in addition to fund accounting and portfolio valuation.

SYSTEMS, BACKUP, AND CYBERSECURITY 

Recordkeeping, automation, and information security are critical to ongoing business continuity and adherence to privacy laws.

REGULATORY COMPLIANCE

Regulatory compliance oversight, policies and procedures, and policy monitoring are highly important to each investor.
