Using Technology to Simplify the RFP Process
The regulatory challenges for pension funds have been rising over the past few years continuously. New sustainability disclosure and reporting requirements are addressed and new investment policies and strategies are developed.
Selecting asset managers, performing due diligence and managing the information flow between pension funds and asset managers requires the application of a disciplined and structured approach. investRFP.com does not provide investment consulting services but pension funds can optionally work with service providers on the platform.
Flexible Request Platform
investRFP.com is used by pension funds to issue requests for mandates, funds, strategies, due diligence activities as well as reviews in a flexible way.
Pension funds define the format, the timeline, the minimum requirements and the individual content of the questionnaires as well as the level of transparency for the request. Investors get access to the global universe of providers.
After the deadline pension funds get online access to asset managers’ responses for screening and analysis. The integrated message system enables efficient communication with asset managers.
Investors use analysis and scoring tools to define the shortlist of asset managers. Further (on-site) due diligence and selection decisions are finalized outside the platform.
