The Ground is Shifting in Private Equity.
Today, LPs have access to more data, ask tougher questions, complete extensive due diligence, and review more options than ever before. The market is highly saturated and specialized, making competition for LP attention more difficult.
For GPs to get ahead and stay ahead, in today’s environment, they need much more than an excellent network, impressive track record and good reputation. They require a deep understanding of how LPs think, as well as the ability to turn that insight into action.
That’s why we created Cobalt. With this powerful platform, we put the power of LP insight in the hands of the GP.
