Data Analysis in PE Markets

How is the data analytics narrative evolving and what opportunities, as well as challenges, is it creating? During these uncertain times, access to good data on one’s investment portfolio feels more important than ever before.

That's why we put together an exclusive report in collaboration with Sanne, featuring experts such as Capstone, All Seas and Quilvest, to dive head first into an in-depth conversation on how investors are evolving their data analysis needs, and, crucially, how GPs are responding in kind.


SPACs in Focus 2021

This report outlines the market drivers which collided to make Special Acquisitions Company (SPAC) deals attractive and what potential target companies should do in preparation of such a transaction. It also identifies the necessary support SPAC sponsors require in order for their venture to be successful. 


Cybersecurity in Focus 2021

This report details the strides general partners (GPs) have been making in relation to cybersecurity and gives a snapshot of further progress needed in the space. It outlines the value of devising a clear cybersecurity strategy as well as the vital role of ongoing maintenance, monitoring and review of this plan. Securing a firm from cyber attacks is now something GPs cannot do without.
