					Corgentum Launches Background
Investigation Service Establishing a Fully
Integrated Operational Due Diligence
Solution
First Independent US-Based Operational Due Diligence Provider to
Offer a Comprehensive Service to Investors
New York, NY (PRWEB) March 11, 2013

Corgentum Consulting, the leading provider of the industry’s most comprehensive hedge fund
operational due diligence reviews, today announced that the firm has launched a new background
investigation service, expanding its operational due diligence (ODD) offerings.

Background investigations have become increasingly significant to assessing investment
opportunities. According to a recent Corgentum survey of ODD analysts, more than 90 percent
feel that background investigation is an integral part of the due diligence process.

The firm's investigative reviews will cover a comprehensive list of key background and
reputational risks across five core areas, including criminal checks, litigation searches, regulatory
inquiries, factual information and media searches.

"Traditionally, consultants have outsourced the background investigation process to stand-alone
investigative firms or subcontractors, which incorporated a new risk for investors with regards to
the quality and consistency of the work,” said Jason Scharfman, Managing Partner of Corgentum
Consulting. “By performing our own comprehensive background investigations in-house,
Corgentum is the first ODD consultant to offer investors a true, full-service solution. Our
investor-focused reviews not only provide investigative data, but also actionable guidance as we
assess and rate the risks to investors.”

Corgentum's new integrated, full-service solution offers investors and due diligence analysts
several advantages, including:

      Guidance on which key persons and entities to investigate
      Customized investigations that review the unique background and reputation risks of
       each manager in context
      Streamlined background investigations, including coordinating the signing of required
       releases and direct interviews with management




                                                                                          1|Page
Corgentum's approach to background research is a bottom-up, comprehensive data driven
process. The background reviews are focused on providing investors with actionable fund
manager recommendations to help them make better informed investment decisions.
