How Chronograph and Lionpoint Help Private Market Investors Leverage Data as a Competitive Edge

The growing complexity and volume of private market data make it essential for firms to optimize their operating models and harmonize information sources across different functions and systems. Additionally, heightened competition for deals and demands for transparent, timely reporting require private market investors to streamline operations and find new ways to deliver outperformance.

In this environment, unlocking data as a strategic asset has become paramount for firms looking to remain competitive. Next-generation technologies leverage intelligent automation to streamline data collection, valuation, and reporting processes while providing investors with greater data accessibility and utilization to make informed decisions, effectively manage risk, and thrive in the rapidly evolving private market landscape.

Chronograph and Lionpoint Empower Investors to Unlock Value From Their Data

Lionpoint and Chronograph work together to define and design effective data strategies, implementing innovative solutions to streamline shared clients’ investment workflows.
