We due diligence alternative investments for wealth managers

Tomlinson Research is an independent investment consultant that specialises in alternative investments.


Commingled investment funds and alternative investment strategies, including hedge funds, private debt and equity, infrastructure and venture capital, are often the largest type of investment in global portfolios, such as pensions and endowments. These can be complex investments.


The challenge for investors is the extensive due diligence necessary to benefit from alternative strategies. A lack of available resources can mean higher risks or lower returns for investors. This is where we come in.


Since inception in 2013, we have worked on over 130 projects for our clients, covering investments in both liquid and private markets. Our work has taken us to 14 cities in eight countries in Europe, the Americas and Asia. We work globally.


We provide endowments, pensions and wealth managers of all types with the necessary due diligence to allocate with confidence to alternative investments strategies.
