Diligend partners with Suite2Go to bring digital due diligence to investment firms in the APAC region

Diligend has partnered with Suite2Go to further extend its reach into Australia, New Zealand and Asia.

Diligend, a cloud-based due diligence software provider for asset allocators and managers has partnered with Suite2Go, a specialist consultancy headquartered in Australia that connects FinTechs with financial services organisations. The partnership will allow Diligend to extend its reach in the Asia Pacific region, building on early successes.

Diligend’s digital due diligence platform was designed originally for asset allocators and clients include superannuation funds, endowments, sovereign wealth funds and investment consultants. The platform has recently expanded and now includes a platform for asset managers, hedge fund managers and GPs to speed up the DDQ response process and improve the quality of data provided.

With Suite2Go’s experienced Australian-based consulting team and network of financial services clients in the Asia Pacific region, Diligend has found a strong partner to amplify its platform and extend reach across the geography.

Wissem Souissi, CEO of Diligend says

“We’re really excited about working with Suite2Go, they’re a very knowledgeable team and really grasped the USPs of our platform. It’s great to have feet on the street in Australia and their understanding of the market, particularly the superannuation funds, is very strong. It’s a key time for the supers right now, the sector is evolving and we’re seeing huge demand for robust, institutional due diligence solutions that will enhance risk management processes and ensure compliance.”

Nathan Walker, Senior Consultant, Superannuation & Asset Management agrees saying,

“We are honoured to have been selected by Diligend to work with them in this region. Streamlining Operational and Investment due diligence (ODD, IDD) is a strong focus for our clients in Australia and Asia. Customising and automating a lot of the manual work involved in DDQ’s and RFP’s improves efficiency and reduces the workload for institutional asset owners and managers.”

Diligend has a very strong use case for asset allocators and GPs that are collecting and analyzing ESG and diversity data from managers or portfolio companies. Whilst many financial services firms in APAC have been focused on ESG for many years, the increased global regulatory scrutiny and data collection requirements are a concern for many businesses. Diligend’s ESG data collection tools and custom analytics dashboards make it fast and easy to score and compare portfolios and create reports for boards or shareholders.

Collecting, analyzing, and reporting accurate, comparable ESG data is now achievable in a matter of weeks using Diligend.
