For 17 years, Exiger Diligence (formerly HedgeCheck and eDiligence) has been helping global financial institutions meet regulatory requirements by providing them with cost-effective, timely due diligence produced through innovative research methods and techniques. Originally started to help financial institutions, hedge fund companies and prospective investors conduct targeted background checks, Exiger Diligence is focused on providing a growing list of enhanced due diligence products and services using a “Best Practices” approach. 

Our team applies a broad range of experience, language capabilities and technological understanding to ensure that all research is comprehensive and meets the requirements of a highly regulated client. Exiger Diligence takes a uniquely intelligent approach to research by assessing and understanding subjects based on specific client needs.

Client Discretion

Since 2000, our professionals have handled thousands of discreet matters for corporations, law firms and financial institutions. We understand the sensitive nature of a discreet inquiry and handle each engagement with great care. Exiger Diligence professionals maintain a high level of trust with their clients and strive to maintain that relationship. 

Industry-Leading Data and Tools

Exiger Diligence utilizes industry-leading data, tools, and search technologies on a global scale. We are constantly evaluating new sources of valuable information and quickly integrate the best into our existing products. 


SmartSource provides transparency into the types of sources reporting on a given subject(s) while still providing those sources with anonymity. We have a robust compliance program and selection process. The components of the program required of SmartSource vendors consist of: Non-Disclosure Agreements, Letters of Engagement, Vendor Questionnaire, Background Investigation, Annual Refresh/Attestation and Interviews with Exiger Diligence staff.  All SmartSource reports undergo a two-manager review process prior to client delivery. This ensures that any information being delivered does not violate (or create the perception of violating) compliance procedures and that unethical or corrupt practices were not engaged. 

Security and Data Privacy

Exiger Diligence uses Insight to manage orders, store data, and transmit reports. All data transmission utilizes Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption and data is also encrypted at rest. Exiger Insight infrastructure and data is co-located in redundant SOC 2 Type II certified, Tier 3 data centers in the European Union. Exiger complies with both EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks.
