Operational due diligence for investors and managers

At Kreischer Miller, we represent both investors seeking to understand the potential operational and business risks resulting from using an investment manager as well as investment managers seeking assurance that proper internal controls are in place and risks are being managed effectively.

Our proprietary operational due diligence process is tailored for each investor’s or firm’s unique needs. We know the inner workings of investment managers well, due to our experience providing audit, tax, and performance measurement services to many investment managers.

We work with managers across the United States and Europe that manage a variety of assets classes utilizing various investment structures, including:

  • Equity (domestic and international, all capitalization levels)
  • Traditional fixed income (corporate, government, domestic, international, high yield)
  • Overlay
  • Private equity
  • Real estate
  • Structured credit
  • Use of leverage
  • Use of derivatives

We perform operational due diligence on the following investment structures:

  • Stand alone portfolios – institutional and retail (including wrap/SMA accounts)
  • Investment funds
  • Fund of funds
  • Master / feeder structures
