To remain competitive and meet investors' increasing demand for seamless, easy digital access to their providers, it has become necessary for private equity executives to invest in advanced data analytics.

Leading funds are driving digital capabilities and innovative insights, realizing EBIDTA growth and higher multiple returns. To remain competitive and meet investors’ increasing demand for seamless, easy digital access to their providers, it has become necessary for private equity executives to invest in advanced data analytics.
HOW WE HELP CLIENTS
We work with funds to assess reporting requirements at both the fund-level and portfolio company level to produce a model that will readily answer performance questions. Through deeply understanding portfolio companies' data architecture, we develop an integrated approach to aggregating data that enables real-time, accessible insights for fund executives and limited partners.
CohnReznick’s story-based approach to analytic enablement produces an output that clearly aligns to the fund-level reporting structure and promotes positive relationships with LPs and portfolio companies by boosting transparency and consistency across the board.
Analytic enablement aids funds in standardizing their performance monitoring process, eliminating the need to constantly request and reproduce portfolio company reports from multiple disparate systems.
Regular, insightful analytics are distributed to LPs, giving them the frequent, flexible, and transparent information that is now expected.
