How GPs should engage with LPs

The smart way for GPs to engage with LPs

While there is nothing wrong with being old-school for certain things in life, interacting with LPs during fundraising for your next private equity fund shouldn’t be. The way in which information is exchanged between GPs and LPs during fundraising hasn’t really changed in the past 15 years (until now!) even though the private equity asset class itself has matured and grown dramatically during the same period. Besides the standard marketing peripherals, a PPM and a slide deck, are you still delivering your track record data in Excel format either on the cloud using a generic file hosting platform or even worse, via email as an attachment? Do different LPs come back to you with different data and analysis requests, requiring more of your resources to meet each of those due diligence demands?

Use CEPRES to maximize your LP commitments

Fundraising in the 21st century must be more streamlined and efficient. With CEPRES, you can now simply prepare your track record data once and then upload it to a secure platform. CEPRES is the gateway for LPs to access and analyze your confidential data; you hold the keys to the gate.

CEPRES is a standardized information exchange and due diligence analysis platform. CEPRES not only enables you to scale your fundraising LP interactions, exceed LP due diligence demands and demonstrate your track record's strengths. For example, you can prepare specific analysis dashboards such as deal pricing and financing structure and their respective comparative deal benchmarking against peers, and share the dashboard with your prospective investors. Do you have a particularly low deal level default and loss rates compared to market peers and want to show that to LPs? CEPRES allows you to clearly get your message across.

Bring your fundraising process to a new level

Using CEPRES for your fundraising process proves to LPs that you are duly aware of, and proactively responding to, their due diligence needs and requirements. Point-and-click modules such as value creation and operating growth show LPs that you know they want to look under the hood of your deals. Interactive multi-dimensional deal performance attribution analysis that replaces pivot tables on spreadsheets shows that you understand their need to analyze your returns from different angles. This is how you stay engaged with today's sophisticated institutional LPs.
