Private equity firms have made noticeable strides in order to digitally transform their operations. However, many firms are still employing legacy technologies and relying on expensive, manual based processes. This session intends to inform and provide detailed insights into best practice for managers looking to invest in their internal technology, such as core technology platforms and/or the ability to leverage sophisticated third-party FinTechs. We will also explore the idea of augmented due diligence and leveraging alternative data to inform investment decisions, and maximise returns.

Join us to discuss the latest trends related to fundraising, as we explore the challenges, opportunities, and best practices. Thinking more specifically about the role of data and the shifting demand for “more” data as competition for capital increases, there is a quest for scalable access to financial, ESG, benchmark, and past performance data for DDQs and Pitchbooks. This is a time for you to gather and discuss candidly with your peers how the demands on your respective businesses are being addressed. During this session, you will have a forum to network, forge new connections, and knowledge share.
