The Challenge

Hamilton Lane’s dedicated Operational Due Diligence team processes over a hundred requests for due diligence reports each year. They are responsible for providing risk intelligence on potential investment opportunities at the company level, including assessing the relevant individuals from the executive management under review.

Supporting more than 450 employees in 18 offices, the ODD team needed a system that could quickly provide background checks at scale without compromising accuracy. Meeting the organization’s fast pace also required a user-friendly system that could enable their multinational team to effortlessly access, track and share information.

“Intelligo Clarity Now helps our global team work more efficiently, quickly and with a high level of reliability, making it easier to interpret reports and share information.”
