IK Business Case
Back in 2007, IK Investment Partners began the search for ways to streamline and enhance the reporting process between the various elements of the partnership’s management structure and the preparation of key high-level information from portfolio companies. There were two key drivers: firstly, a desire for greater efficiency, uniformity and frequency in the reporting process; and secondly, an expectation that there would be greater demand in future from LP investors for transparency in the performance of portfolio companies.
The Preqin Solutions platform allowed IK to move smoothly from quarterly to monthly reporting by providing portfolio companies with a straightforward mechanism to report to their respective deal teams and handle queries and adjustments, and ultimately accelerating the reporting cycle.
