Private equity groups (PEGs) and their portfolio firms make quick decisions in a highly competitive market, and that requires fast, accurate and timely data. Engaging successfully in the private equity realm also requires strategic networking and strong relationships.
Whether a PEG is investing in a company, fixed income securities or other assets, the competition is keen for sound investments and top talent. Building a trusted network and keeping contact data up-to-date is vital as it allows partners to effectively leverage their valuable connections.
From managing fundraising, investor relations and deal flow to portfolio management, PEG research teams manage deal lifecycles —from identification of prospective companies to the final details of a buyout. PEG’s require sophisticated CRMs to manage all aspects of their business. Whether building intelligence data on limited partners, creating processes for nurturing prospects and earning investors’ trust, developing intelligence on interactions and deals to gain competitive advantage or evaluating performance, CRM is an essential tool for managing a private equity business.
