Due Diligence: Appraisal and Management of Potential Investors and Partners

Why Attend

How do you “do” due diligence? The quality of due diligence matters as much as the quantity undertaken. A meaningful due diligence is a customized exercise that is well integrated into the overall investment process and relies on effective interaction between all participants. It must be able to address different types of challenges, including both the ability and the willingness on the part of the investee to meet the investor’s information requirements. Fortunately, for potential investors, there are well-established tools and practices supporting the investor’s due diligence which are available to everyone.
