Product Overview

In order to grow Assets Under Management, Asset Owners have had to accelerate the rate in which their investment teams have to review and analyze new deals.  However, this has created new challenges in collecting financial data, performing financial analysis and tracking committee decisions. Manual processes and desktop tracking tools like Excel are inefficient and don’t enable teams to quickly and accurately make decisions that can fuel portfolio growth. Without a better process for assessing new deals and matching them to investment criteria, asset owners are vulnerable to making poor investment decisions and acquiring assets that will not meet expected returns.

  • Only system that can host your Excel financial models and automatically apply them to specific projects 
  • Designed specifically for the  asset owners' project investment process
