Symbiotics has developed a comprehensive set of reports to analyse and provide adequate due diligence on the legal, operational, financial and social elements of fund managers and investment funds investing in micro and small enterprises in emerging markets. Symbiotics analysts assess and screen the investment universe according to the eligibility criteria and guidelines defined in the investment strategies of our clients. The analysts then submit a questionnaire to the fund manager and write a two to three page desk analysis report, which provides sheer facts, risks factors and future outlook of those fund manager and investment funds that meet the eligibility criteria.
Following the decision of the pre-investment committee, Symbiotics analysts perform a full financial and social analysis of the fund manager and investment fund, with on-site interviews and credit risk scoring. Through the due diligence and investment selection process, the investment committee seeks to identify solid fund managers and outstanding investment funds to close the best investment opportunities. Symbiotics represents the institutional investor in its negotiation with a given fund manager, and advises him/her accordingly, with both industry and transaction expertise, until all terms and conditions are finalized. The team is then in charge of the closing, clearing all obligations and required precedents.
Syminvest provides a centralised platform for your portfolio monitoring and risk management. Symbiotics’ investment analysts collect monthly key indicators on each investment fund and review on a monthly basis the data, ratios and graphs which are produced from this information and update its monthly qualitative watch list. The team performs monthly monitoring of the funds and transaction risk assessments.
