Fund of Funds

Today’s most competitive investors are facing a proliferation of data and an increasing number of market participants and deals to track every day. Most fund-of-fund firms want to execute on their investment strategies in a thoughtful, methodical way, but they don’t have the resources and tools at their fingertips to get the job done. By creating a single source of truth for all information regarding deals, relationships, and capital deployment, DealCloud has enabled these professionals to operate more efficiently and strategically.

 

To its core, DealCloud believes that every investment team and model is unique, and that those who execute on it should have a fully configurable, unified technology platform to act as the central hub for the firm’s intelligence. We’re proud to deliver these solutions to fund of funds now, and will continue to build new solutions that adapt to ever-changing market complexities.

 

DealCloud often gets compared to a CRM, but in reality, our investment firm software is equipped to do much more than that. Fund of funds, no matter the size, need the ability to manage relationships, transactions, processes, workflows, and the operations and compliance of the overall firm. Our investment firm software allows fund of funds to keep track of every relationship by allowing investment professionals to categorize, tag, organize, and report on their relationship data (companies, contacts, deals, etc.) in any way that they choose. Put simply, the technology adapts to the unique ways each fund of funds works.

From strategy to execution

For capital markets firms to successfully manage their growth and maintain best practices, investment in technology is a necessity. DealCloud’s investment firm software helps fund-of-fund firms manage their deal processes and key relationships. Our fund of fund firm tools enable investment professionals to understand and manage the complex ecosystem surrounding a deal — including company management, advisors, lenders, sponsors, and investors — all without duplicative input.

 

The FoF model demands that there be visibility on every market development and trend occurring in the industry. And because the returns tend to be lower than traditional investment funds, the margin of error tends to be larger. That’s why they leverage DealCloud’s platform to more effectively deploy capital and grow relationships:

 

  • FUND MONITORING
  • BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITY TRACKING
  • FUND MANAGER COVERAGE
  • INDUSTRY ANALYSIS
  • DEAL AND LEGAL DOCUMENT MANAGEMENT
  • INVESTMENT PROCESS CREATION AND MANAGEMENT

 

Fund of Funds investment firm software features & solutions

DealCloud’s fund of funds investment software centralizes unorganized proprietary and third-party data and transforms it into meaningful intelligence with easy-to-read, interactive dashboards and automated reports. Users can elect to receive notifications and automated reports with predictive insights via email, web, and mobile. Notifications can be scheduled, such as weekly pipeline reports, or triggered by certain activities within the platform, such as the creation of a new deal or logged note.

Since our investment firm software was built by industry experts, we know that not all fund of funds operate in the same way. The pipeline, relationship management and reporting needs of one user, team, division, or company may differ greatly from the next and DealCloud’s fund of funds software provides investment professionals with the tools they need to inform decision making.
