Earlier this week, Eze Castle Integration participated in the third annual Private Equity Software and Solutions event at Grange St. Paul’s Hotel in London.
The event was attended by 24 exhibiting vendors and 110 delegates from 59 companies, including Senior Executives, Investor Relations, COO/CFOs, FDs, Portfolio Analysts, IT Directors and other appointed representatives for a day of presentations, information sharing and networking.
Let’s have a look at some of the hot topics that were discussed, and links to some useful resources:
Private equity efficiency: responding to new economic realities facing the private equity industry
Industry experts are driving big changes to their private equity portfolios in response to new economic realities and dramatic falls. As recent events have shown the sufficient impact on the financial services industry, firms are preparing themselves for the ever-changing economic environment, which demands streamlined processes, increased transparency and a heightened need for improved reporting.
SunGard – one of the sponsors of this year’s PESS Conference - recently published a whitepaper looking at “Doing More with Less – The Keys to Private Equity Efficiency.”
The report looks at:
Technologies that Address Inefficiencies; and
Efficiency Boosts the Bottom Line

As technology becomes more widely available, fund managers need to understand how to leverage the tools available to drive improvements in operational efficiency and better align IT services to business requirements, enabling them to focus on the key aspect of their job -- maximising their return on investment. At Eze Castle, we have prepared a 21 page eBook, which looks at Cloud Computing for Hedge Funds.
