Operational due diligence in capital allocation
Successful capital raising has historically been driven by ROI and reputation. Investment managers are finding that these alone are no longer enough to attract capital from the largest investors.
Driven by an increasing awareness of the importance of robust compliance controls, asset managers, investors - particularly institutional investors and family offices - are taking a more careful approach to allocating their capital.
Prior to investment, operational due diligence is often undertaken by the investors and their advisers, to ensure that they are allocating capital to companies that have well established business practices, including good governance, culture, systems and controls. Companies that cannot demonstrate that they are positively embracing these virtues will likely lose out on the capital.
In addition to this, institutional investors will move their capital to firms with stronger systems and controls in place, leaving poorly structured investment managers with less AUM.
