Jan 3 2017 | 10:23pm ET

Alternative asset technology specialist Indus Valley Partners has debuted a new end-to-end solution for private equity firms designed to manage portfolio companies, deals, cash flows, water falls and expenses under one platform.

The new product, named IVP for PE, integrates the front, middle and back office across a single deal management platform, the company said in an email to FINalternatives. It combines deal analytics, centralized portfolio company data collection, predictive analytics, scenario analysis capabilities coupled with core data management functions to ensure accuracy, consistency and audit trails across data sources.

Features of the new platform reportedly include:  

  • Deal Capture:  Model legal entity structure (AIV/SPV/LP/GP), set up portfolio companies, input asset-level cash flows, input deal parameters and funding partner support.
  • Due Diligence: Consolidate asset-level cash flows into time-series, automatically and accurately calculated IRRs (gross and net), support standard net/ fund-level multiples (PIC, DPI, RVPI, TVPI),"slice and dice" deals e.g. look at asset-level groupings.
  • Deal Management: Cash Flows, IRRs Projected, Underwritten, Actuals, Key performance indicators (KPIs) for deals, financing waterfalls - funding partners (debt/equity), public market equivalent (PME) analysis, performance calculations (fund and portfolio level), custom analysis dashboards.
  • Allocations and Payment Waterfall Automation: Automate complex allocation rules for expenses; automate performance waterfalls (claw backs and fee schedules), model payment waterfalls to GPs and LPs, seamless integration to portfolio accounting system/ excel models.

"PE firms are feeling the inherent limitations of reliance on Excel,” said Gurvinder Singh, CEO of Indus Valley Partners, in the statement. “They know they need a consolidated deal management platform…one that gives them an overview of the entire deal lifecycle from capital raising, portfolio company performance through to allocations, payment waterfalls and everything in between. GPs need the control/oversight and LPs welcome the increased transparency.”

Founded in 2000 and specializing in portfolio management technology for alternative asset managers, Indus Valley Partners includes 20 of the top 50 global hedge funds among its client base. Some 25% of global hedge fund AUM, or approximately $1 trillion, is managed using IVP technology.
