ICI Global brought a working group together to develop a single and uniform due diligence questionnaire (DDQ) that will serve as the standard for investment funds (cross-border UCITS and AIFs) in performing onboarding and ongoing oversight of distribution channels.
Effective 1 June 2020 and already adopted by Fund Channel, this DDQ is publicly available for use by any fund manager or distributor on the ICI Global website.
“The goal of the working group was to create a comprehensive questionnaire which fund distributors and platforms could complete […] and make available to all fund companies requesting the information.”
Fund Channel has based its 2020 due diligence campaign on this DDQ. The answers collected from the distributors are then analysed and validated by a multidisciplinary committee at Fund Channel and subsequently, these responses allow us to address fund managers’ own due diligence requests.
