What makes Cobalt GP Different?
Contextual Intelligence vs. Generic Information
Because all insights from Cobalt are based on a GP’s proprietary data, every GP using our platform gets contextual perspective rather than the same information every other GP sees from generic databases.
Cobalt GP is built on top of a proprietary data set that you can’t get anywhere else. Analysis and insight is only as powerful as the data that informs it.
Cobalt’s technology is grounded in best in class design and innovation. GPs choose Cobalt because of the superior user experience and platform flexibility.
With Cobalt, managers are up and running within 2 weeks. There’s no lag time between onboarding and getting value from the platform.
Hamilton Lane + Bison = Powerful Partnership
