Reputational Due Diligence 


Reputational risk is critical for any asset owner.

Before allocating capital to a new asset manager, Castle Hall's Reputational Due Diligence profiles allow rapid, cost effective validation of manager reputational risk - across regulatory filings, legal databases, sanctions and politically exposed person watchlists. Each RDD profile also includes extensive media searches across web, social media and premium news sources, including the Wall Street Journal.

Once invested, RDD monitoring provides daily updates when your managers are "in the news" - or in court.

RDD is available on asset management companies and individual management company executives. RDD will shortly expand to allow coverage of service providers, directors and trustees, and to follow the reputational footprint of underlying portfolio companies.

Step 2

Each Reputational Due Diligence Profile draws on a comprehensive range of public records sources, carefully curated by Castle Hall’s RDD team.

  1. ADV data from DiligenceExpress, Castle Hall's comprehensive ADV database (applicable to investment managers registered as advisors with the US Securities and Exchange Commission)
  2. ADV Analytics: Castle Hall evaluates more than 25 ADV analytical factors, including short track record, existence of disciplinary disclosures, or a material, year on year rise or fall in regulatory assets under management
  3. Review of watchlists (more than 800 analyzed); search for sanctions and for politically exposed persons
  4. Review of legal databases, including evidence of fines and regulatory actions
  5. Adverse media on the web and social media
  6. Curated, real time media monitoring
