Investor Allocation, Waterfall Distribution and Carried Interest: Introducing The Bridge

Quarter-end and contribution/distribution calculations remain the most complex and time intensive area of fund management. The biggest challenges of the alternative investment industry, namely carried interest calculations for investment managers, investor allocation mapping for all activity, distribution waterfall and recycling calculations, linger largely unaddressed by existing software solutions. Instead, the status quo has been to rely on manual in-house methods to calculate and enter results into systems.

The Bridge is a complete lifecycle investor accounting and allocations solution. It enables the fund manager to administer the fund from inception throughout its life and addresses aforementioned challenges by automating many of the currently manual processes to create a robust infrastructure.
