In-depth Research through Qualitative Evaluation

With the same basic methodologies of qualitative-evaluation as Traditional Asset Funds, we conduct research recognizing the uniqueness of Private Asset Funds with relatively limited information. We focus on not only investment aspects but also perform operational review and carefully review contractual terms.

Private-Asset Funds

Similar to traditional fund and hedge fund research, private asset fund research also places a heavy emphasis on the evaluation points within the investment platform, investment process and disclosure. Additionally, private asset fund research also includes a careful review of the contractual terms between managers and investors since they are unique to each fund.

Since the investment time horizon is generally longer in private market investments, operational review is a critical part of private asset research. A longer duration of the agreement and the managers’ fiduciary duty can magnify any differences in the robustness of its operational capabilities.
