Secondaries

Given the complexities of the private equity (PE) secondaries market, deal professionals need technology and data solutions that can be configured to meet the specific needs of their particular firm. Without an established trading market for secondary investors to leverage, secondary investments and transactions tend to be more challenging and complicated to manage and execute. For this reason, most CRM systems fall short in meeting the needs of GPs and LPs who participate in the secondaries market.

 

DealCloud’s data-powered software is specifically designed to empower secondary investors to successfully manage deal origination tasks as well existing portfolios. Regardless of the size or focus of your firm, our software solution can be easily configured to meet the unique needs of your secondary investments tasks so you can execute deals and manage relationships at the highest levels.

 

Although the DealCloud platform is often compared to a CRM, our software solution is built to provide so much more than a generic CRM. PE secondaries need the ability to track placement agent relationships, oversee origination efforts and the deal pipeline, manage portfolios, report on key findings, and organize internal communications from a single source of truth. Typical CRMs may be able to assist with some of these tasks, but only DealCloud is flexible and secure enough to handle every secondary investor’s.

After your firm chooses DealCloud, our implementation team will assess your unique reporting needs on a day-to-day, week-to-week, and month-to-month basis, and help you build the reporting capabilities that best suit your firm.
