Corgentum opens San Francisco office, becomes largest US independent operational due diligence provider

Wednesday, September 12, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update: Corgentum Consulting, the leading provider of the industry’s most comprehensive hedge fund operational due diligence reviews, today announced that the firm has continued to expand its operations with the opening of a new office in San Francisco. The new location establishes Corgentum, headquartered in Jersey City, N.J., as the largest US-based provider of independent hedge fund operational due diligence reviews.

Corgentum opened the office in response to a growing demand for hedge fund operational due diligence reviews from West Coast-based investors including endowments, investment consultants, family offices and fund of hedge funds. In addition to hedge fund reviews, Corgentum has also seen an increase in demand from investors for operational due diligence assessments on private equity and real estate funds.

"Our new expansion will allow Corgentum to better serve investors on the West Coast by providing a valuable on-the-ground presence in multiple locations. Additionally, being closer to Asia, will allow us to further expand upon our existing Asia-based investor relationships," said Jason Scharfman, Managing Partner of Corgentum Consulting. "Our expansion and continued growth on the West Coast will allow us to broaden our coverage of local managers and provide investors with a regional operational due diligence partner."
