Debuted at HedgeWorld in January, Vantageâs five software modulesâVantage Deal Managerâ¢, Vantage Performanceâ¢, Vantage Contactâ¢, Vantage Investorâ¢ and Vantage Funds-of-Fundsâ¢âencompass the private investment lifecycle from deal management and portfolio performance reporting to fundraising and investor servicing. The Vantage Precision Tailoring Frameworkâ¢ is a software-agnostic layer that provides the foundation for rapid customization of each core module to deliver the functionality firms need without replacing their existing IT infrastructure. A hybrid alternative to internally developed and off-the-shelf software, the combined solutions give hedge funds, private equity firms, funds-of-funds and investment advisors powerful plug-and-play connectivity between proprietary, third party and/or Vantageâs component-based software modules.
"After conducting an extensive vendor search, we found no other comparable software solution that could meet our needs," says Bain Capital vice president Susan Lock. âVantage's solution is a much more efficient and capable software system, and we look forward to its implementation.â Prior to Vantage, Bain Capital relied on a multitude of solutions including spreadsheets to track their investments and valuations, as do many private investment firms.
âWe are pleased that Bain Capital sees the time and cost benefits of partnering with us to extend and enhance their core accounting and business processing capabilities,â says Vantage Reporting CEO Woolf. âOur innovative solutions are gaining traction because, particularly in the private investment space, thereâs an acute need for software product that can be customized to each firmâs specific requirements while leveraging their existing systems.â
