Placement Agents

Today’s placement agents are racing to raise capital and to provide other valuable services to dealmakers as efficiently as possible. It’s more important than ever to maintain visibility across industries and sectors to find potential investors for fund managers, and vice versa. Gone are the days of making do with generic software; instead, purpose-built software for placement agents like DealCloud systemizes limited partner (LP) and general partner (GP) relationship management, transaction, and fundraising data.

 

DealCloud centralizes critical proprietary and third-party data, providing firm-wide access and visibility into the data and insights required to act quickly and decisively. No matter your firm’s size, strategy, clients or operating model, DealCloud’s placement agent software allows placement agents to access a single source of truth that simplifies relationship management, reporting and data management to help achieve the best outcomes for fund managers, LPs, and other deal participants.

From strategy to execution

The true value of DealCloud’s placement agent software is that it was built specifically for the complexities of private placements, and with unique needs and requirements in mind. Placement agents maintain complex relationships with LPs, GPs, and potential investors. Without technology, they are at a disadvantage as they collect industry insights because those insights cannot be transformed into institutional knowledge.

 

In a hyper-competitive dealmaking landscape, placement agents need to maintain visibility on fundraising and capital allocation, the secondaries market, emerging markets, in addition to developments in certain industries. Best-in-class placement agents can leverage DealCloud for the following:

 

  • LP AND GP COMMUNICATION
  • FUNDRAISING AND CAPITAL ALLOCATION
  • FUND MONITORING
  • INVESTOR COVERAGE
  • FUND MARKETING
  • DUE DILIGENCE
  • BESPOKE REPORTING
  • NEGOTIATION TRACKING

Placement agent software features & solutions

The most successful placement agents have embraced purpose-built software to track and organize relationship activities, streamline communication, and manage the flow of fundraising data. Having fundraising-specific data housed within the same platform as the placement agent’s proprietary transaction information, due diligence materials and documents, as well as relationship data enables placement agents to create bespoke reports and provide fund managers and LP clients with key information at scale.

 

DealCloud was built with the complex relationships that placement agents execute on daily in mind. No matter what unique demands GPs and LPs have, our core software, integration layer, third-party data streams, and expert client support team will ensure your firm’s success.
