Nobody likes thinking about worst-case scenarios. However, even the most prepared private equity firm with a well-thought-out disaster-readiness plan could never have envisioned the global health crisis and economic calamity brought on by COVID-19.

Now that we’re working outside of our comfort zone in an environment filled with uncertainty and risk, sophisticated investors are looking beyond quarterly reports to drill down on fund performance, general partner (GP) operations costs, exposure and other metrics as GPs reassess their playbooks, reevaluate their portfolio companies and strategize on how to deploy dry powder.

Since the Financial Crisis of 2008, the LP-GP relationship has changed for the better. For every GP, building and retaining an LP’s trust is the cornerstone of the LP-GP relationship. Knowing that transparency is top of mind more than ever among our more than 240,000+ strong LP community — the largest in the world — Intralinks’ brand new InvestorVision solution allows fund managers to securely communicate with investors with speed and ease. Here are just some of InvestorVision’s suite of features include:

  • Secure, streamlined investor reporting
  • Intuitive, enhanced user experience
  • Better transparency and faster communication
  • Portal branding
  • Single login across all funds and managers

Fund managers who leverage this best-in-class technology to safely and securely share sensitive communications and data with investors will have a competitive advantage during the current economic contraction. Better reporting will also help GPs retain LPs.
