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, and qualifications are essential.
OPERATIONS, ACCOUNTING, VALUATION, CASH MANAGEMENT
Trade execution, settlement, cash movements, and reconciliations are reviewed; in addition to fund accounting and portfolio valuation.
SYSTEMS, BACKUP, AND CYBERSECURITY
Recordkeeping and information security are critical to ongoing business continuity and adherence to privacy laws.
Regulatory compliance oversight, policies and procedures, and policy monitoring are highly important to each investor.
Experience in Numbers
PRISM has extensive experience evaluating the operations and businesses of alternative investment managers.
