Due Diligence on service providers and delegates

In Consulting

Asset managers are facing an increasing need to demonstrate the effective oversight and governance of third party service providers and delegates, and in particular, distributors.

Not only do managers need to effectively manage business risks related to the delegation or outsourcing of key functions, but there are increasingly high expectations of regulators when examining records demonstrating that effective initial and on-going due diligence has been performed. 

Managers are increasingly resorting to third party service providers to perform tailored end-to-end services to perform the due diligence on third parties / distributors and document it accordingly with a proper risk assessment.

To an extent, the outsourcing of such activities can be seen as an efficient pillar of market infrastructure, as service providers build up intelligence on key market participants which forms the basis of due diligence data with multiple end users.
