AlternativeSoft adds comprehensive private equity fund analysis to analytics platform

Wednesday, September 02, 2015
Opalesque Industry Update - AlternativeSoft, a provider of buy-side analytics for manager research and portfolio construction in the alternatives and long only markets, has released its latest software, AlternativeSoft v3.5. The platform provides users with comprehensive quantitative analytics, CRM functionality, bespoke reporting and fast user experience.

AlternativeSoft will be adding a full-suite of Private Equity fund analysis to its best-selling ‘Asset Selection’ and ‘Portfolio Construction’ modules which currently cover Hedge Funds, Long-only and ETFs.

Developed in conjunction with practitioners using current best practices to monitor Private Equity Fund investments, the module will assist with asset allocation and provide greater insight when monitoring the overall portfolio performance and cash flows through a host of metrics including IRR, J-Curve analysis and TWRR. Greater supervisory functions have been introduced within the Portfolio Management function aimed at CIO level users providing in-depth PnL analysis along with side pocket switch trades and currency hedging, the addition of the Brinson Return Attribution model to the Exposure Analysis function and further integration with strategic partner with ‘HedgePo’ – a revolutionary data source.

According to William Broadway, Practice Lead, “We expect the next 12 months to be the most important yet for us with our continued alliance with HedgePo – tackling the inherent information asymmetry faced by investors.”

When asked about the continuing strategic partnership, Ryan Kalish, Co-founder of HedgePo said “It is indeed a very exciting time for both our firms. Data is gathered directly from the fund manager and standardised through the platform, so all AlternativeSoft clients have a streamlined process to access the information they need, in real time.”

In the first half of 2015, AlternativeSoft have made several large additions to their existing client roster of investment banks, sovereign wealth funds and institutional investors relying on AlternativeSoft for manager selection and portfolio construction services.
