Risk Management

Alternative investments can create increasingly complex administration and investment portfolio risks. We help you identify and develop a solution to facilitate better investment decisions, mitigate operational risks, and support investment risk management.

Data Management

Alternatives need intricate data management due to unstructured data, lack of standardization and transparency, and significant latencies. We assess your data requirements, and determine the processes and technology that will best meet your needs.

Systems and Processes Assessment

Cumbersome and inefficient investment systems and processes create roadblocks. We assess your current workflows and present operating models and solutions to help you process alternative investments – from deal capture to financial reporting.

Vendor Evaluation and Implementation

We create RFPs and review, evaluate, and identify the best vendor solutions to meet your needs. We then design your implementation road map, including process workflows and requirements, estimated costs, and anticipated time and resources.

Areas of Expertise
