London-based AlternativeSoft, a provider of buy-side analytics for manager research and portfolio construction in the alternative and traditional asset management sectors, has unveiled the latest version of its flagship offering, AlternativeSoft v3.5.
The platform provides users with quantitative analytics, CRM functionality, and bespoke reporting support. According to the vendor, it has added a suite of private equity fund analysis tools to its Asset Selection and Portfolio Construction modules, which currently cover hedge funds, long-only funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs).
The module, developed in conjunction with buy-side practitioners using current best practices to monitor private equity fund investments, will assist with asset allocation and provide greater insight when monitoring the overall portfolio performance and cash flows through a number of metrics, including internal rate of return (IRR), J-Curve analysis, and time-weighted rate of return.
Greater supervisory functions have also been introduced within the Portfolio Management function aimed at CIO-level users, providing them with in-depth P&L analysis along with side pocket switch trades and currency hedging, the addition of the Brinson return attribution model to the exposure analysis function, and further integration with strategic partner, HedgePo.
