With Preqin’s annual Global Reports
and Quarterly Updates
on the state of the asset class, Unigestion has access to the latest statistics on the fundraising market, investor trends, deals activity and dry powder levels.
Its Business Development team benefits from in-depth fundraising information on its target markets – such as Iceland and Japan – which are particularly difficult regions to approach.
Through Preqin Pro’s 13,200+ active investor profiles, Unigestion has access to detailed information on 480+ Japan-based LPs, and 25+ Iceland-based LPs. The company can see their investment preferences, allocation breakdown, ESG & impact policy, manager relationships, key contact details, and more.
Coupled with Preqin Pro’s News Alert feature, the Business Development team also receives daily notifications on investor news such as new RFPs or fund searches, new fund commitments, people moves, and future investment plans to stay ahead of the curve.
Once the Business Development team identifies new target markets, it relies on Preqin to assess the competition. By leveraging Preqin’s data on LPs and their network of relationships that have been formed over the years, the team prepares its approach with granular competitive analysis that identifies its competitors and classifies them by strategy, location, and size.
With the support of Preqin, Unigestion’s Business Development team can gain a competitive advantage by matching the relevant unique selling points of its differentiated strategy with investor preferences when fundraising.
From an investment perspective, Unigestion’s Investment team must manage its extensive portfolio of fund investments and assets, whilst assessing the various investment proposals the team receives on a regular basis. The team therefore uses Preqin as an auxiliary tool to complement the very large amount of information it requires on private equity funds and fund managers.
The team uses Preqin Pro’s Quick Search to instantly access a fund manager’s detailed profile including historical information on investment strategy, sector preferences, ESG and responsible investment policy, fund track records, and more. This helps quickly and effectively assess investment opportunities.
Pro’s targeted fundraising alerts also allow the team to track the market. Each week the team receives notifications straight to its inbox, helping track new funds coming to market and the latest fund closures, and therefore identify new opportunities.
With intuitive and customizable features, Preqin Pro supports the team’s due diligence process when evaluating potential fund investments, and enables it to make the best-informed investment decisions so that clients receive the best risk-adjusted returns.
