The Objective

The Approach

  • Reforecasts and Report Preparation: Integrated the fund models into the QPR and analyzed the forecasted cash flows and liquidity profile for all the funds to prepare the QPR deck that displays fund-wise current and forecasted performance.

The Challenges We Overcame

The major hurdles faced by the TresVista team were integrating data from different departments/deal terms from the client’s side, ensuring the comments/data from every stakeholder from the previous as well as the current quarter are incorporated in the QPR, data inconsistencies across the client’s External report and GP reports.

The TresVista team overcame these hurdles by ensuring that the data across the different sources were consistent with each other, by effectively and proactively communicating with the client, and by automating the process to reduce the amount of manual work required and the probability of errors.
