Investor onboarding and management for Private Funds is a largely manual process, causing frustrations for both investors and fund managers.
Digital investor onboarding tools help streamline the process for everyone involved. Paired with automated data management/integration, the fund manager and investor experience are vastly improved.
As competition for capital continues to increase, streamlining operations and enhancing collaboration are paramount for success. Raising new funds, managing subscription documents and integrating data within a manager’s ecosystem has historically been a manual and time-consuming process with only 20% of subscription documents being considered in-good-order when they’re initially submitted. Revisions are time-consuming and expensive. If investor information is changed or updated, the process to get it back into CRMs was a manual copy and paste.
However, online subscription documents and data integration solutions have revolutionized the way private equity firms onboard investors. This article explores the benefits leading fund managers enjoy when they move their onboarding online.
Improved Investor Experience
By bringing the subscription process online, fund managers can pre-populate investor information and have visibility of changes and updates throughout their raise. No longer are incomplete or incorrect documents submitted via PDF, requiring multiple rounds of edits. Now, fund managers, investors and their stakeholders can all collaborate on a document and get it right the first time.
Enhanced Efficiency and Visibility
Scale your operations to meet increased volume of investors without adding resources. Processes can be kicked off in source systems and tracked through integrated workflows. Every stakeholder can complete tasks and keep track of process status and next steps, and all parties are alerted to any missing data or documents.
Automated Data Integration
Investors need to change or update their information during the process? Updates are routed through Exchangelodge, compared to source systems, automatically kicking off a review and approval process and accepted changes and updates are integrated into downstream systems.
Enhanced Compliance and Security
All data changes are controlled, and review and approval processes are tracked and audited—ensuring data security. With no manual data uploads or unsecured spreadsheets circulating, fund managers are operationally compliant.
The integration of online subscription documents and automated data integration brings significant benefits for private fund managers, investors, and other stakeholders. By embracing these tools, fund managers can improve investor experience, get enhanced efficiency and visibility, and improve compliance, allowing them to focus on running their funds, not chasing paperwork.
