CEPRES transforms your portfolio forecasting

Many LPs lack access to the right data to optimize decisions. Predictive models regularly rely on scraped PDFs of a fund’s quarterly summaries, painting an incomplete picture and adding risk. CEPRES Portfolio Forecasting runs Monte Carlo simulations based on cash flows of tens of thousands of actual deals combined with your existing portfolios. These granular, accurate inputs increase predictive power, helping maximize your returns while minimizing your risk.

Accelerate your digital transformation

Transforming a pension’s portfolio to meet NAV requirements

A pension with normal risk/return optimization was obligated to maintain a specific NAV. Market volatility prevented effective portfolio forecasting. CEPRES designed multi-year allocation scenarios with adjusted commitment plans and portfolio restructuring options, finding that the client’s portfolio would miss NAV targets and was sub-optimal for their risk/return profile. The pension reoptimized its portfolio to ensure NAV target achievement.
