What due diligence does Triodos perform on the organisations it raises finance for?

We perform thorough due diligence (in some cases over many months) on the clients we raise finance for. This includes – but is not limited to – the following:

•   Know your customer checks – ensuring that the company, the management team and its board are who they say they are.
•   Financial due diligence – reviewing recent financial statements and management accounts to analyse the historic financial performance of the company.
•   Financial forecasts – working closely with the organisation to develop a robust financial model based on realistic underlying market, operating and financial assumptions and sensitivity analysis.
•    Assessing the financial viability of the organisation using reasonable underlying assumptions over the term of the bond to ensure capital and interest payments can be met in a base case scenario.
•    Management team and governance – meetings with the management team and board of directors or trustees, reviewing their experience and track record and governance and decision-making processes.
•    Mission and impact – understanding the mission and ethos of the organisation to ensure that genuine social or environmental impact is created through its activities.  

Our corporate finance managers are all qualified finance professionals with significant experience in the accountancy and investment banking sector. See more detail on our team here: http://www.triodos.co.uk/raising-capital
