SAN FRANCISCO— Mercatus, a leading asset and investment management platform, today announced a partnership with leading global professional services firm, Alvarez & Marsal (A&M) to help customers accelerate digital and data strategies through Mercatus’ Investment Lifecycle Management product.
The new wave of digitalized investors that is emerging has data as a strategic core competence. Combining Mercatus’ software with A&M services will help accelerate the growth and data-driven intelligence of alternative investment funds globally.
“It’s an exciting time for investors in alternative assets,” said Tim Buchner, COO at Mercatus. “The sheer growth of the space – expected to reach $80T by 2030 – will provide a lot of opportunity for the best run investors. However, such volume will bring increased complexities from broader diversity across assets and private equity investments, new business models, and increased client data transparency requirements. We’re excited to be working with A&M to help solve this problem for global investment firms in ways that significantly impact future growth and portfolio returns.”
Mercatus systematizes and centralizes asset, fund, and portfolio data to give investors more accurate analytics and real-time performance and risk metrics. The result is faster deal evaluations, accelerated due diligence and reporting, more accurate forecasts, and ultimately confidence in the underlying data used for investment decisions. With nearly 10 years’ experience in Energy and Power, Mercatus understands the unique requirements of alternative assets like energy, infrastructure, real estate, and private equity.
A&M’s Alternative Investment Services group helps asset managers address complex challenges. This partnership enables both firms’ clients to evaluate and implement personalized data and digitalization strategies to help managers diversify, scale and grow in today’s data-driven world.
“We are extremely excited to announce this initiative with Mercatus,” said Cole Corbin, head of A&M’s Fund Analytics and Reporting, a group that specializes in helping alternative investment managers with system rollouts, and the implementation of software platforms and overall platform management. “With their capabilities in energy and infrastructure, Mercatus is providing a dynamic software solution to a critical yet underserved segment of the market.”
