"When one click generated a 30 page, beautifully formatted due diligence report I was impressed. When one click generated 1,000 my jaw dropped"
- Chris Addy, President & CEO, Castle Hall Alternatives
Castle Hall Alternatives specialise in operational due diligence on hedge funds. The firm looks beyond the financial statistics of more than a thousand hedge funds worldwide to comprehensively evaluate their practices. They provide institutions, funds of funds, advisors, endowments and family offices with unbiased insight they can trust.
Their key product is a hosted platform, OpsDiligence, that provides access to their detailed live database and in-depth PDF reports, often 50+ pages long. Like most business documents, these were originally produced manually in word processors, but the approach simply was not scaling up fast enough.
Castle Hall contacted ReportLab to automate their report production. Using ReportLab PLUS, ReportLab was able to generate the reports directly from the underlying database, allowing clients to pull down a comprehensive publication-quality document, literally seconds after updates to any of the content.
Impressed, Castle Hall also asked ReportLab to advise on the streamlining of the database and application architecture. “We came to ReportLab for the document creation technology, but it immediately became clear that they had deep knowledge of the fund management business, as well as a top-notch hosting platform meeting the security needs of financial and government clients. They have played a key part in maturing our platform, hosting the technology and mentoring our own development team as we scale up” - Chris Addy
