Convergence and the Investment Management Due Diligence Association announce the immediate availability of E-RISK and I-RISK, a web-based analytical and reporting tool that gives users the ability to download reports and conduct comparative analysis of Asset Managers that have been cited for infractions in SEC enforcement actions. E-RISK allows anyone to download analytical reports detailing the Convergence’s view on what high risk business conditions led to the infraction while I-RISK allows IMDDA members to compare and contrast similar risk conditions in their Managers to those who have been cited by the SEC.
“E-RISK gives you insights into high risk business conditions at SEC Registered Managers that have been the subject of enforcement actions by the Commission and a view into the number of Managers with similar risks in the market,” said John Phinney, Founder of Convergence. “ Our I-RISK tool gives IMDDA members a web-based analytical tool that allows them to compare these high-risk business conditions to the Managers in their portfolios.”
“Working with Convergence to offer the E-RISK and I-RISK tools is yet another example of the IMDDA’s commitment to bringing insightful and actionable information to global due diligence professionals,” said Andrew Borowiec, Executive Director of the IMDDA. “These are great tools for due diligence professionals to use to evaluate and make better decisions about the investments and potential investments in their portfolios.
“IDD, ODD and Risk Management teams at several Pension plans and Fund of Funds have already adopted “I-RISK” platform to supplement their pre-and-post operational due diligence efforts,” said George Evans, Founder of Convergence. “These teams are using our data to identify red-flags that can emerge during and after due diligence process.”
“I-RISK gives us timely insights into various non-investment risks that supplement our traditional operational due diligence process, said the CIO of an $80bn State Pension plan.
