Where M&A Happens.™

The Diligent® Portfolio Management software provides unprecedented speed and certainty in the M&A processes private equity firms and investment banks engage in every day.

So, we applied our knowledge and developed an entirely new category: Tech-Enabled M&A software.

Through a sleek web-interface, Diligent allows users to evaluate, oversee and aggregate an unlimited number of companies seamlessly. Diligent is not just a simple consolidation tool or portfolio reporting engine. It is a cradle-to-grave solution for better managing private equity processes that drive value creation.
