Due Diligence

Led by experienced gatekeepers, RIS conducts mock due diligence at the firm level as well as on ready-for-market strategies to identify the top-down and bottom-up strengths and weaknesses in the presentation of the people, philosophy, process, portfolio, and performance as viewed through an ESG lens. RIS identifies internal contradictions and inconsistencies, gaps between stated objectives and delivered portfolio, portfolio elements out of step with commonly accepted ESG standards, adherence to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment, and other potential game-stoppers. The goal is to position the asset manager to make adjustments and improvements where necessary or simply provide the lingua franca of ESG manager analysis to raise the probability of a positive outcome from a wealth management or consultant due diligence process, including preparing the firm to respond to requests for proposal/information (RFP/RFI) and to report to industry databases.
