Cascata Solutions Expands its Private Equity Automated Waterfall Software Suite with a New Carried Interest ‘Hypothetical’ Scenario Analytics Module
Systematic and Predictive Insights for Optimized Fund Performance
Cascata Solutions, the leader in automated Waterfall administration software and services for private equity, has released a new module to its software suite that delivers hypothetical carried interest modeling and scenario analytics for greater deal-level insights and return on investments for fund managers and administrators.
Waterfall model construction and distribution are some of the most complex tasks in the private equity back office administration, as there are limited standards and many complexities and nuances, because of the wide range of arrangements, investment structures and specialized terms. “Carried interest is the ultimate reward for a job well done by a GP and yet most still rely on manual and bespoke processes, ad-hoc tools, e.g. Excel and key personnel making it operationally inefficient and prone to error that often results in misallocation of profits.
Through the life cycle of the fund, from fundraising through the ongoing operation and exit, being able to forecast the most optimal outcome at an investment level is crucial to making these decisions and to achieve the greatest performance” said Chuck Dooley, Cascata Solutions CEO.
Cascata Solutions’ new ‘Hypothetical’ Scenario Analytics Module provides the level of systematic predictability and insights through the life cycle of the fund to perform scenario forecasting based on user-definable and time-based parameters to evaluate the impact of hypothetical investment outcomes. For example:
With both use cases above, the system provides very powerful yet simple reporting capability for comparative analysis of the different outcomes for a particular investment-level transaction.
