Award-winning executive will oversee CEPRES’s Market Intelligence solutions suite and industry-leading private market data
NEW YORK—JUNE 9, 2022—CEPRES, the leader in private market investment technology and data, today announced the appointment of Alka Banerjee as Global Head of Product, Market Data. Banerjee will oversee all CEPRES data products, comprising Market Intelligence, DealEdge, Indexes, and the new and innovative products the company has in development.
Banerjee joins CEPRES from S&P, where she led S&P DJI’s Product Management Group, including US equity, global equity, fixed income, commodities, real assets, strategy, custom indices and data. She has also served as chief executive officer of Asia Index Private Limited, a joint venture between S&P DJI and the BSE of Mumbai, India’s premier stock exchange, and earned recognition from The Economic Times as one of the 20 most influential global Indian women.
Banerjee remarked, “Investors need the right tools and data to see around corners and to stress-test investment hypotheses, and nowhere is this more apparent than in the private markets, where the unprecedented competition for deal flow requires precise, rigorous analysis done quickly. CEPRES has been the leading provider of private market deal data and solutions for years, and I am excited to join the company and work towards bringing CEPRES’s market-leading deal data to wider audiences.”
Banerjee’s role will drive yet more innovation in CEPRES’s data, which is sourced directly from fund managers and presented to users in the aggregate, with absolute anonymity, helping investors make better private market investments.
CEPRES clients, which span LPs, GPs, fund of funds and other private market participants, use CEPRES Market Intelligence solution suite to look through fund-level data into underlying assets, triage private market deal comps and trends, benchmark relative performance, and more. Top GPs already use DealEdge, built jointly with Bain & Company, to underwrite hundreds of buyouts deals.
