ListAlpha has launched a new deal and relationship management platform, tailored specifically for private equity investors, which aims to automate deal flow tracking activity, and reduce manual data entry work for investment teams.
The company says that a series of pilot programmes have demonstrated a significant increase in reported deal flow once ListAlpha becomes an integral part of origination and investment research activity.
The platform was founded and developed by Ihar Valodzin during the Covid pandemic, while ListAlpha benefited from early support from Mayfair Equity Partners, which provided expertise and the infrastructure required to develop and scale the business.
ListAlpha includes traditional CRM functionality as well as a company screening engine which enables investors to research new deals directly from the platform and to evaluate them based on previous sector experience and adviser relationships.
The software also evaluates target businesses by combining traditional API-based company information with qualitative judgement delivered by OpenAI GPT technology to deliver an “Investment Committee one-pager” in under 10 seconds.
ListAlpha also offers powerful contact management functionality through Outlook integration, which auto-populates information and removes the need for manual data entry. The platform also provides AI-generated industry tags for each contact, including links to associated activity, making finding advisers or industry experts easy to do.
With intelligence gathering and sharing at the core of any private equity workflow, ListAlpha provides note-taking functionality, allowing deal teams to gather deal insights in one place, and is natively compatible with Microsoft and Google, delivering easy integration with other applications.
