Jan 30 2012 | 7:53am ET

Laven Partners and GFIA have joined forces in Asia to provide an operational, due diligence and compliance service based in Singapore.

According to a statement from Laven Partners, a London-based consultant to the alternatives sector, the move is in response to increased demand for such services, particularly from developed markets for greater expertise in Asian funds.

The partnership will see Laven Partners, which recently expanded its presence in the U.S., increase its Singapore staff.

The firms will use Laven Partners’ processes, including its independent process of operational due diligence report, operational assessments reports, operational recommendations report and its compliance internal audit report as well as its ongoing compliance and fund set up services.

Peter Douglas CAIA, founder and principal of GFIA, said in a statement: “We are very excited to be able to work with Laven Partners, who are market leaders in the industry and known for their disciplined, scalable, and replicable consultancy and due diligence processes. We are delighted to be able to access top quality resources in the developed markets.”
