What Makes Shadmoor’s Operational Due Diligence Offering Unique?

Shadmoor is a leading boutique operational due diligence consulting firm, differentiated by five key principals:

  1. Shadmoor is focused on operational due diligence consulting.
  2. Shadmoor’s client engagements are limited to a focused number of clients in a co-sourced methodology, essentially serving as an extension of our clients’ organizations.
  3. A majority of the Shadmoor team are senior O.D.D. professionals with decades of alternative investment experience.
  4. Customizable operational due diligence mandates with regard to scope, frequency, asset type, etc.
  5. Shadmoor does not offer operational due diligence reports through a database format, nor does it provide its clients with investment ideas. Our client’s privacy, with respect to the investment opportunities they identify and participate in are held in strict confidence.
