We apply problem-solving skills to identify innovative workflow efficiencies and we implement technology solutions to enhance our systems, products and processes- and all this while providing platinum customer support to our clients.

Our Private Equity team provides market players with high quality data on fundraising activity, investors’ commitments and recent deal transactions, creating a powerful platform to monitor the market and find out about the latest industry trends.

General Partners use our data to identify potential investors by looking at their historic commitments, assets under management and allocation to alternatives, while Limited Partners can identify new investment opportunities and effectively assess investment managers by benchmarking funds against their peers and analysing historic performance.
