Software Support

Software can help ease a fund managers ability to better manage a fund and its portfolio.  Software can provide support at two levels – at the fund level and at the company level.  At the fund level, it can support fund managers to standardize and maintain pipeline status, monitor portfolio performance and entry/exit events, and manage portfolio valuation and fund reporting.  At the portfolio company level, software is most needed to standardize the recording of financial and operational transactions and ensure transparency in performance  reporting to the fund manager.  While these software help both the fund manager and investees  better  institutionalize their operations, choosing the right software can be onerous with several options available and insufficient information on which is best suited to one GP or the other and similarly for investees.
