About the Cobalt LP Impact Index
We asked a diverse group of global LPs to rate their ability to effectively evaluate their portfolio, potential investments and opportunities in the private markets. We uncovered that today’s LPs want to be able to respond quickly and confidently to stakeholders, with on-demand insight and automated analytics that facilitate better decision making. However, many LPs that rely on spreadsheets or outdated systems struggle to do this in a consistent, streamlined way.
The results highlight the areas where modern technology solutions, such as Cobalt for Limited Partners, can change the way LPs operate.
