Hedge Fund Due Diligence Guide

Hedge Fund Due Diligence New hedge funds are launched daily, which is constantly increasing the importance of conducting formal hedge fund due diligence and determining which hedge funds are appropriate for you or your firm to invest in becomes increasingly important. Every person or company is going to have different investment horizons, risk tolerances, strategy preferences, etc. so it is usually more valuable to know the basics of how to evaluate a hedge fund then it is to hear someone say which hedge funds are "the best." I think giving hedge fund recommendations even to the degree of suggesting exactly how to evaluate a hedge fund is too close to finance advice to put online but the SEC website does provide this advice in conducting a minimum level of hedge fund due diligence before investing:
  1. Read a fund's prospectus or offering memorandum and related materials
  2. Understand how a fund's assets are valued
  3. Ask questions about fees
  4. Understand any limitations on your right to redeem your shares
  5. Research the backgrounds of hedge fund managers
  6. Don't be afraid to ask questions

Hedge Funds Due Diligence Articles, Guides & Tools

I have been collecting the hedge fund due diligence resources below over the past 18 months and I'm posting them here in hopes that they will a few people construct a relatively holistic view of what hedge fund due diligence is about along with provide a few example RFPs and tools to use while conducting due diligence on hedge fund managers. This is not an exhaustive list and the information anywhere on this blog or within the linked sites should not be treated as investment advice or a substitute for financial advice of any type. This is simply an aggregation of online hedge fund due diligence resources. I have only listed 21 resources here so far, I hope to make this more robust, if you have something you think should be added here please email me at Richard@RichardCWilson.com.
