Tech-enabled GPs not only fundraise faster than their non-tech counterparts, they also raise twice as much capital, according to this survey we conducted. Investment management software can make the fundraising process substantially more efficient, and using the right software tools can make all the difference.
We’re constantly building new tools to streamline fundraising and improve productivity. Here are several new features coming out this week that will make workflows even more efficient:
Juniper Square for Outlook
This Microsoft Outlook add-in brings the power of Juniper Square’s CRM directly to your inbox so that you can get context instantly on a contact without needing to leave Outlook. “The new Juniper Square feature on Outlook has significantly increased my overall productivity with a setup that lets me view everything I need in one place,” said Jedd Horn, director of capital markets for Alchemy Properties and Alchemy-ABR Investment Partners. “It’s a seamless integration and enables work to be perfectly streamlined.”
If you’re already a Juniper Square customer, you can install the add-in now.
Identity and Watchlist Screening
Managers often run diligence checks referred to as “KYC” (or “know your customer”) to confirm the identities of their investors and assess the risk of doing business with them. Running identity and watchlist screenings through Juniper Square’s digital subscription process makes it easier to track screening results and offers an easy-to-use, seamless experience for investors. Now GPs of any size have access to these diligence screenings.
Within the digital subscription process, investors will have the option to verify their identity by answering knowledge-based authentication questions instead of providing documents. This will speed up the subscription process for you and your investors, enabling you to close more subscriptions faster. Screening results are automatically updated in Juniper Square and you’ll get notified in the event there is a status change.
In addition to our broad library of flexible statements and notices, you can now create notices to confirm investors’ contributions, redemptions, and other capital activity, and to document any resulting changes in account value and ownership in the fund.
You can create these notices either individually or in bulk, as needed, and they are automatically customized for each recipient and delivered through the investor portal or by email, streamlining your investor communications.
