Are You Standing Out to LPs?
In such a challenging fundraising environment, it’s more important than ever to differentiate your approach. Investors are focusing on strong value creation, and firms that want to secure capital need to be able to show their credentials in that regard.
Fund-level benchmarks cannot meet this need. They do not track the alpha generated by specific deals, and it is difficult to compare funds on a like-for-like basis. Deal-level benchmarks offer much more granularity: tracking value creation in specific deals lets firms benchmark the constituent parts of their portfolio against only the most relevant peers.
With deal-level operational analytics, you can stand out to investors and demonstrate where you have the competitive edge. Explore how to power up your fundraising pitch with DealEdge.
