CENTRL, a Silicon Valley-based enterprise risk company, announced today that its platform is being used by eight of the world’s largest banks and investors. Financial institutions are using the CENTRL platform for managing the ongoing diligence of fund managers, custodians and service providers.
Ongoing diligence of third party relationships is a critical function for banks and asset owners to manage the risk of trillions of dollars in outsourced accounts and to comply with strict government regulations. Investors have over $16 trillion invested in alternative investment vehicles and likewise banks have even greater amounts in custodial accounts with partners around the world. Managing the diligence of these relationships is a core risk function and a major regulatory obligation for financial institutions worldwide. Up until now, the process has been largely manual with limited digitization and automation.
CENTRL has rapidly emerged as the leading diligence platform for the financial industry being used by global banks, investors and consultants to digitize their diligence process and deliver 50-60% efficiency gains and enhanced risk oversight. CENTRL has been driven by the vision that diligence is a two-sided process and hence its platform is being widely adopted by the fund managers, global custodians, sub-custodians and other respondents owing to its ease of use and highly secure infrastructure.

We are pleased to see that institutions with even the most robust needs are leveraging our solution to improve outcomes,” said CENTRL’s CEO Sanjeev Dheer. “The platform offers a breadth of features clients find valuable including deep workflow automation, powerful analytics, reporting and the growing use of AI to transform the diligence process.
