Alerts, Reviews, and Approvals

  • Telescope manages all logistics to contact each firm, collects responses and requests regular updates.
  • Telescope instantly notifies you when responders change answers to questions.
  • Telescope ensures best practices around reviews, checklist completion, and multi-group approvals. As changes occur, Telescope sends out alerts to shorten your reaction time.


Telescope’s Risk Scoring alerts you to higher risk third party firms.

IMDDA houses a wide array of questionnaires – all of which can be augmented with your own custom questions. Examples include:

  • research brokers
  • expert networks
  • trading counterparties
  • cyber/DR/BCP
  • general vendors and professional services
  • KYC and KYV
  • distributors
  • sub-advisors
  • political consultants
  • sector and regional specialists

Of course, new questionnaires may also be created as needed.
