Creating a Best Practice
Due Diligence Policy

For professional investors, Operational Due Diligence (“ODD”) has become an increasingly important element of their process to allocate capital to third party asset managers. 

Internal and external stakeholders now see a DD Policy as best practice to establish a consistent, evidenced and auditable diligence process across all external manager relationships. When drafted effectively, a policy document guides daily activities, and equally provides a longer-term, strategic framework to oversee the inherent risks of a third-party manager program. Indeed, some global regulators have begun to identify ODD policies as a regulatory issue for prudentially regulated entities.
