LEVEL II: Due Diligence
CHP Level 2 Option on Due Diligence helps hedge fund professionals learn about hedge fund due diligence fundamentals and best practices. The CHP Level 2 program on due diligence program requires three texts. Each focus on different aspects of due diligence and are crucial to a well-rounded understanding.
One text will provide an overall basic level of knowledge of due diligence, some techniques, and key terms to focus on and thus should be read first (Hedges on Hedge Funds). One book will provide candidates with some of the current models and techniques being used in the hedge fund industry to uncover operational risk, and trends that may lead the way within the industry going forward (Hedge Fund Operational Due Diligence). The final book is meant to be the capstone of the entire due diligence section and links many of the previously explored ideas together in a meaningful way while explaining some of the most crucial elements of a hedge fund and their overall relation to risk (Hedge Fund Risk Fundamentals).
Level 2 builds on CHP Level 1 by referring to investment strategies, terms, and trends discussed within the Level 1 reading materials.

The video content within this portion of the program is worth far more than the CHP tuition since this material can normally only be received by retaining $200+/hour consultants or attending expensive industry conferences charging over $1,000 for admission. All of these resources have been put together by professionals who have raised capital for hedge funds in the past, and each is made to be as practical and actionable as possible.
