Current technology demand in private equity: a secure GP-LP portal
Now more than ever, Private Equity firms are facing escalated rules and regulations when it comes to information and documentation. Transparency, compliance, and security are familiar concepts in the PE marketplace. But firms need to get ahead in order to satisfy their investors and partners. And, not only do firms need to surpass their competition, they need to find solutions that are scalable for growth and compliance. In the current market, technology offers the most viable and complete solution to these challenges. In order for firms to provide this type of documentation, they are looking to automate the process. The current technology firms are seeking out, is a GP-LP Portal.
Reporting & compliance requirements are increasingly more tedious
As reporting requirements from institutional investors and regulators continue to develop, firms must adopt systems that make it easy and secure to post, share, and access information–including documents and other content–digitally. In addition, accessibility is a concern; there’s little point in investing time and resources in order to move data, information, and documents into a new system if your team and stakeholders then can’t find what they’re looking for. Firms and users need secure, fast, and simple access to files and documents.
The increasing importance of transparency & security
In addition to the upswing in reporting and compliance requirements, the demand for greater transparency and security is also increasing. While both have historically been key in the PE landscape, they’re becoming even more essential as firms turn to technology for scalable solutions.
As larger quantities of sensitive information and documentation are uploaded into digital systems and programs, the risk of that information leaking increases. To compensate for this risk, PE firms are developing higher security standards for their technologies. Implementing holistic systems that solve reporting, compliance, transparency, communication between stakeholders, and growing security concerns is essential for firms that plan to get ahead.
