Check Fund Manager Due Diligence Research

Providing critical information to help you evaluate
Alternative Investment Managers and protect your capital


Avoid Investment Fraud

Check Fund Manager has been warning its clients for years about potential Hedge Fund blow-ups long before they occur. We have also alerted our clients in regard to many others that are not published in the news, or have yet to be exposed.

Our Wall of Shame highlights managers who were previously researched by Check Fund Manager, and were involved in frauds and blow-ups that you may have read about in the news. In each case, we present a synopsis of the fraud, then demonstrate how our research helped our clients avoid it.

17% of Investigations Reveal Detrimental Information

Our research shows the incidence of a court case or some other exception in 17% of the cases, ranging from civil suits and credentials misrepresentation to regulatory sanctions and criminal activity.

Our In-depth Research Identifies Risk Factors

Our goal is to identify the hedge fund and private equity managers who could expose your capital to undue risk. Over the years, we have helped to protect the capital base of hundreds of institutional investors that incorporate alternative investments into their portfolios.

Check Fund Manager's experienced Investigative Analysts perform intensive due diligence research utilizing multiple proprietary data sources and network of contacts. They are adept at taking minimal information and being able to effectively identify a manager's full name, date of birth, and Social Security number, even when the name is common. From there, our Investigative Analysts continue the due diligence research process by:

  • Examining regulatory records and civil and criminal proceedings:
  • Identifying lawsuits ranging from simple breach of contract disputes to major Federal RICO and Securities Exchange Act of 1934 violations:
  • Verifying educational degrees, company affiliations, and professional financial societies;
  • Locating liens and judgments;
  • Determining real estate asset valuations; and
  • Researching financial media and Internet publications for salient biographical facts.

Common Questions & Answers

Do you need the signed consent of the individual being researched?
No. With some exceptions, signed consent is not required.

Do you recommend we inform the individual manager that he is being researched?
No. We recommend that you do not inform your managers.

How can you offer your service so inexpensively?
Our business pricing model spreads the cost of research across multiple clients. In many instances, CheckFundManager will over time research the same individual for multiple clients who then benefit from the cost savings.

Media Research

Our Comprehensive Research include significant research of media to reveal articles concerning adverse information, the subject's employment and directorships, and also to highlight relevant items of general interest if appropriate.

Interpreting Red Flags and other Report Information

Our documentation methodology highlights what we consider to be red (detrimental), yellow (interesting) or green (non-detrimental) flags.

We recommend that you consider the following questions as you evaluate the information:

Who do you represent, and what are their interests? A public institution may have a far different tolerance for infractions and headline risk than a private investment client.

What is the charge, and how does it relate to the business the fund is involved with? Is it recent? Does it make you question the integrity of the individual or the firm? Or is it a minor charge from the distant past?

Are there multiple "exceptions" listed in the report? A single charge may not seem significant, but multiple charges could reveal a pattern of undesirable behavior and therefore greater headline and/or capital risk.
