Streamlining fund due diligence.

Door is a collaboration between leading fund investors and asset managers to solve common problems. Together, we created the digital interface to access up-to-date and standardised fund due diligence information.

Why Door exists for Asset Managers

Streamlining

Responding to due diligence questionnaires is intensive and repetitive work. And the workload is growing - some asset managers report a 100% increase in the last 12 months. There is no agreed standard among your clients for fund due diligence. While 90% of questions are common, fund information has to be recut over and over again.

It is all taking too long

Why Door exists for Fund Investors

Spend time analysing information, not collecting it

Due diligence is a vital function. Currently, too much of a fund investor’s time is spent gathering and organising information. There is not enough time for analysis and fresh thinking. Monitoring of positions is becoming a greater challenge. Regulatory requirements are growing. Fund Investors need transparent, easily comparable and timely responses from asset managers.
