Journal of Alternative Investments Features Corgentum's Operational Due Diligence Research

The most recent issue of the Journal of Alternative Investments (JAI) has published an article written by Corgentum Consulting Managing Partner Jason Scharfman. The article, Analysis of Three Emerging Trends in Limited Partner Operational Due Diligence focuses analyzing three key trends that have emerged among investors performing operational due diligence (ODD) reviews on third-party fund managers. Specifically, the three trends discussed on the article are:

  • Increase in the scope of ODD reviews
  • Expansion of the depth of ODD reviews
  • Movement toward integration of ODD and investigative due diligence processes

One of the key findings from the article is that operational due diligence continues to receive more resources and attention from both investors and fund managers. Other findings include that investors are increasingly performing more frequent and rigorous operational due diligence reviews as fund operations have increased in complexity. The full article is available in the current issue of the Journal of Alternative Investments (Winter 2020, Volume 22, Issue 3).
