From LIBOR to SOFR: A Flexible Architecture is The Key to Surviving This Evolution

At the grand old age of 51, LIBOR (London Inter-Bank Offered Rate) has reached retirement with its expiry date set for the end of 2021.

SOFR is the new benchmark for all dollar-denominated loans and securities and is based on transactions in the U.S. Treasury repo market. However, the switch from LIBOR to SOFR will create complexities that must be overcome if GPs are to produce transparent, on-demand reporting that will satisfy LPs.

In this whitepaper, learn how the flexible architecture of Allvue's system allows it to evolve with the investment industry, making a future proof solution for all investment needs.

What is Business Intelligence and Why Should GPs Care

Having the ability to synthesize and glean insights from vast (and growing) data sets can be very useful across many roles and functions in any organization.

The investment management industry, whose business model is predicated on information discovery, has taken notice. "Business Intelligence", or "BI" tools are being deployed across the firm, from the back office to investment teams to client relations.

This paper will look at four situations typical in a GP – managing the deal pipeline, monitoring portfolio company KPIs, fundraising and management/partner reporting – to see how these tools can be utilized to optimize decision making across the firm.

The Risk of Spreadsheets For Private Capital Fund Managers

Spreadsheets are like an old friend - we rely and trust them, even if they make us crazy once in a while. But in terms of the private capital industry, too much reliance can turn into an unproductive relationship.

Sullivan Solar Power’s IT Leader Enables Lead Generation and Revenue Growth

When Daniel Sullivan started Sullivan Solar Power he had one goal in mind: to transform the way the world generates electricity.

At the time his company launched in 2004 it was one of few in the San Diego area that installed solar power systems. Since then not only has Sullivan Solar Power grown tremendously, so has the industry itself.
But the company’s fast growth was hindering their ability to deliver. Sullivan Solar Power needed to find a way to stay ahead of the competition. Company leaders quickly identified that they needed a better way to manage an exploding volume of sales leads.

The company’s spreadsheet-based system for tracking leads was inconsistent and impossible to report on making it difficult to know the actual number of leads. The team turned to Quick Base to quickly build a centralized system to manage sales leads and other key company information. They have since leveraged Quick Base to streamline multiple processes and functions, from multiple business functions like HR, Purchasing, and IT.
