Laying the operational foundation for success

In the hunt for higher returns and portfolio resilience, investors continue to diversify into private markets. Growing firms filled the lending gap as investors enjoy the attractive returns that far exceeded public debt yields.

In the midst of surging inflation, fast rising interest rates and geopolitical uncertainty, private markets is “uniquely positioned for both reliable income and risk-adjusted returns,” notes alternative research analyst Prequin in a recent Global Private Debt Report.

In this whitepaper, learn how private credit is proving to be one of the more resilient sectors of the growing investment landscape, in an era of rising public volatility and risk. The more superior the operational infrastructure the better positioned your firm will be to take advantage of the unusual opportunities in these uncertain times.

Grow comfortably with Geneva®

One sure way to drain profitability as you grow is to run multiple, single-purpose systems that result in poorly-integrated operational siloes. Strategy proliferation is untenable without the right technology backbone.

Firms need a comprehensive portfolio management system that can handle market complexities, multi asset classes and investment structures with confidence. Solutions must support all instruments, transaction types and currencies. That’s how firms sustain growth without the growing pains.

Geneva® supports a variety of fund types and strategies, supporting markedly different accounting and reporting requirements, covering both open- and closed-end structures.

This enables asset managers, hedge funds, private equity, private debt firms and practically any investment manager to manage their portfolios more efficiently and accurately. And respond more quickly to changing marketplace demands.

Geneva® can be tailored to unique investment strategies and processes in private equity and private debt. And it’s scalable: no need to replace your portfolio management system as your portfolio grows and gets more complex.
