Leading South African Wealth Manager Digitizes Asset Manager Due Diligence and Monitoring With DiligenceVault


STANLIB Multi-Manager and INN8 Invest, the discretionary fund manager and the manager research capability of the Standard Bank Group, looks to DiligenceVault to digitize their manager research, monitoring, and risk management processes.



DiligenceVault, a global due diligence technology platform for asset owners, allocators, and fund managers with 50,000 global users, today announced that INN8 Invest, a  leading South African Discretionary Fund Manager (DFM) and Multi-Manager has adopted DiligenceVault to power their fund manager due diligence and ongoing monitoring needs.

By moving away from email, Word-based, manual data collection and risk rating processes, the INN8 Invest investment and operational due diligence teams can now leverage DiligenceVault’s secure, cloud-based platform to efficiently capture and analyze important quantitative and qualitative data points from both global and African fund managers.

DiligenceVault’s sophisticated technology enables INN8 Invest to centralize and digitize all manager data and incorporate its proprietary scorecard and rating model right into the DV platform. INN8 Invest now has the capability to quickly assess both investment and operational performance according to the Fund’s own risk criteria within the DiligenceVault platform.

Tyron Harrison, Chief Operation Officer of INN8 Invest commented, “We’re very happy with the way DiligenceVault has allowed us to save countless hours spent on manually collecting and analyzing data through questionnaires. We can now streamline our exchanges with our fund managers, making the overall due diligence process more efficient for us and them. We now have a ‘golden source’ of all our interactions with our managers (questionnaires, documents, notes, meetings, calls) in one place, covering the needs for our various teams: fund research, operational due diligence, ESG and D&I. DiligenceVault will allow us to track progress, streamline reporting and monitor risk through our digital rating framework.”

“We are incredibly excited to have been selected by one of the most sophisticated Multi-Manager businesses in South Africa, confirming our vision in building out the largest and most advanced diligence technology platform in the industry. We are grateful as more and more allocators and fund managers join our diligence network to streamline the flow of data and information across participants,” said Guillaume Rouault, EMEA director of DiligenceVault.
