"When one click generated a 30 page, beautifully formatted due diligence report I was impressed. When one click generated 1,000 my jaw dropped"
-- Chris Addy, President & CEO, Castle Hall Alternatives
Castle Hall Alternatives specialises in operational due diligence on hedge funds, private equity and long only funds. The firm looks beyond reported investment performance to comprehensively evaluate if managers meet operational best practice standards. They help global institutional investors, fund of funds, advisors, family offices and endowments identify and manage the business, legal and operational risk of asset managers. With more than 25 professionals dedicated exclusively to operational due diligence, Castle Hall deploys one of the industry’s largest and most experienced due diligence teams, supported by a sophisticated, proprietary due
diligence platform, OpsDiligence.
OpsDiligence is a hosted platform developed by ReportLab that provides access to Castle Hall’s detailed live database and dynamically generates in-depth PDF reports on demand (often 50+ pages long). Like most business documents, these were originally produced manually in word processors, but the approach simply was not scaling up fast enough.
Castle Hall contacted ReportLab to automate their report production. Using ReportLab PLUS, ReportLab was able to generate the reports directly from the underlying database, allowing clients to pull down a comprehensive publication-quality document, literally seconds after updates to any of the content.
Impressed, Castle Hall also asked ReportLab to advise on the streamlining of the database and application architecture. “We came to ReportLab for the document creation technology, but it immediately became clear that they had deep knowledge of the fund management business, as well as a top-notch hosting platform meeting the security needs of financial and government clients. They have played a key part in maturing our platform, hosting the technology and mentoring our own development team as we scale up” - Chris Addy
