Our Data Advantage

The founder of the look-through investment

In the early 2000s, the idea of large-scale data exchange in the private markets was unfathomable. CEPRES recognized that investors needed to look through fund performance into the underlying deal and asset performance to make better investment decisions. We started by providing investors access to granular, actionable private market data and insights to enable the look-through investment. Today, we are a full-scale private equity investment operating platform. We combine the largest private market data network with award-winning SaaS solutions to help power better private market investments across the investment lifecycle.
