Third Party Due Diligence Provider
Hardman & Co is an FCA registered capital markets research and consultancy business, which was founded over 20 years ago, with offices in London and Edinburgh. We have a reputation for producing high quality research on funds, bonds, quoted and private companies.
Amongst our range of services, we offer commercial due diligence, utilising our team of experienced investment analysts. Our clients range from corporate lawyers who retain us as expert witnesses for court cases, to corporate finance houses who employ us to value businesses, to global corporates for third party verification of their own diligence, to charity foundations and private equity firms.
Our analysts combine significant capital markets experience with deep specialist industry knowledge, developed through working at many of the best known investment houses and brokers in the City. Fund managers commission us to explain their funds to investors, including their track record, performance attribution, risk profile and fee structure. Among our services in the bond market, we produce the industry reference publication on the ORB (retail bond) market. In the quoted sphere, we are the longest established publisher of ‘paid-for’ research on companies. Our clients market capitalisations range up to £2 billion.
We offer a comprehensive commercial due diligence service for the Gibraltar Stock Exchange covering funds, bonds and equities. As well as fulfilling the GSX’s requirements, the diligence process can be helpful both in providing an outsider’s perspective on a business, bond or fund, and an insight into how to present the investment case to existing and potential investors.
