Due Diligence Guidelines –


3. Approach Adopted by the Due Diligence Guidelines

Sponsors should always be mindful that reasonable due diligence might dictate that additional enquiries should be undertaken with respect to any aspect of due diligence, according to the circumstances of any given case (including for the purposes of addressing any issues or concerns raised or discovered in the process). Equally, the circumstances of a particular case may mean that it is unnecessary to undertake particular enquiries envisaged in these due diligence guidelines, in which case this will not of itself mean that the sponsor has failed to conduct reasonable due diligence.


HKCFEF Limited and the contributing law firms, accountants and sponsors are not offering these due diligence guidelines as legal, financial or professional advice or services and they should not be relied upon as such. These due diligence guidelines should not be used as a sole basis for any decision, action or inaction and are not meant to serve as a substitute for the advice of qualified professionals.
