» Investment Manager Selection & Due Diligence Processes
THE CORLISS GROUP’s capability to recognize asset management aptitude in the area of alternative investments has constantly proven our facility to operate within this market area. Candidates are initially sourced out through our network of strategic partners, long-standing relationships and referrals from managers, trading desks, service providers and other potential sources.
The Firm's due diligence process is rigorous and systematic. Due diligence is viewed as a mosaic where qualitative and quantitative information is assembled and analyzed. Issues such as manager reputation, integrity, personal commitment and potential conflicts of interest are meticulously and objectively assessed.
How a manager's firm is organized, staffed and compensated are critically important factors in our assessment. We constantly watch over the manager's investment as well as its organizational skills to determine possible sources of problems.
