This Waterfall Automation solution for private equity funds takes a feed of investor capital (from source systems Investran, eFront, AltaReturn or other) and calculates a distribution waterfall at the lowest level of detail required. The waterfall is made up of return of capital, preferred return, GP/LP catch-up and carried interest. Scenario modeling includes flexes on preferred return rate, catch-up and carry splits, future cash flows and exit dates, as well as a holdback provision on investor distributions, in cash or percentage terms.

LPA’s can be complex, particularly for your largest and most important investors. Give your fund managers an edge, speed up your ability to report to IR and LP’s, and enable a scalable platform that allows you to accurately and securely disseminate waterfall activity to the appropriate parties.
