Consultant and hedge fund data provider BarclayHedge has formed a partnership to distribute the due diligence SwissAnalytics product online through its website.

The SwissAnalytics alternative investment analysis platform was established in 2005 as a comprehensive qualitative and quantitative risk framework through which it performs in-depth due diligence and calculates and monitors accurate lending values for non-traditional assets such as hedge funds.

SwissAnalytics's analysts perform due diligence using a risk framework that requires them to score over 140 different qualitative risk factors systematically. According to SwissAnalytics this prevents them overlooking critical risks while minimising analyst bias.

The quantitative analysis covers standard factors such as standard deviation, value at risk and drawdown analyses. It also applies alternative methods such as Monte Carlo, omega, scenario and an alternative multiple-regression style analyses.
