How is data being used to make the due diligence process more efficient and effective?

Due Diligence is episode 6 of the Analysing Investment Skill podcast hosted by Rick Di Mascio, CEO of Inalytics, and Tim Harkness, renowned sports psychologist and data analyst.

With technology now playing an increasingly central role in all our lives, data analytics can establish a direct link between method and skill. In the due diligence process, this increasingly enables investors to accurately look for and assess the investment skill of third party managers.

In this episode, Rick and Tim discuss the vital role of due diligence, research and rigour in differentiating luck and skill in the worlds of investment and sport.
