As part of this partnership, advisors will have access to research and due diligence reports on more than 40 hedge funds and hedge fund-of-funds that are covered by FEG. The research will be available on the Envestnet platform. Advisors will be able to leverage research reports and information that include manager and strategy overviews, fund terms and service providers, historical performance and exposure detail.  Advisors will also get access to quarterly monitoring reports including quantitative analysis and commentary on quarterly performance and organizational updates.

"This partnership is the natural progression of Envestnet's commitment to providing advisors with a better way to manage wealth," said James Patrick, Managing Director, Advisor Managed Programs, Envestnet. "FEG is leading the movement to democratize investing in hedge fund strategies and we believe their research and due diligence process complements and enhances the solutions on our platform."

Hedge fund due diligence is performed by FEG's research team in accordance with its rigorous process, which includes on-site meetings, operational due diligence, third party service provider verification and multiple reference checks.  FEG also provides ongoing monitoring of hedge fund managers via performance analysis, risk monitoring, position level monitoring, quarterly conference calls and face-to-face meetings to verify the manager's continued ability to deliver excellence.

FEG advises on approximately $33 billion* in assets for institutional clients and has more than $3 billion* allocated to hedge fund managers via direct investment from their clients as well as discretionary access vehicles.  Over its 24-year history, FEG has developed a strong network of investment managers, investors, service providers, and peers that provides an informational edge in navigating the hedge fund industry. Hedge fund due diligence combines both quantitative analysis of performance and risk characteristics and a qualitative assessment of managers based on a proprietary six-tenet scoring system.
