Investor Fee Calculator for Private Equity and Hedge Funds

Investor Balance Tracking and Performance Reporting for Hedge Fund and Private Equity Firms

Increasing complexity challenges firms that have elected to use a hybrid private equity/hedge fund investor entity structure. It combines the exacting timelines for investor reporting typical of hedge funds with the tailored structures that are also typical of private equity firms. When you add in the complexity of leverage for investors, hedge fund accounting teams are spending several painstaking days a month manually adjusting home-grown spreadsheets.

Ryan Eyes has created the Investor Fee Calculator to generate all of your investor accounting and performance reports. The custom, purpose-built technology is created specifically for Hedge Funds and Private Equity Organizations. It provides fund managers and administrators the capability to automate balance and performance tracking into a single-pane-of-glass solution.

It maintains reporting for GAV, NAV, High Water Mark, Cost Basis, & Credit Borrow Balances to track and report these critical metrics quickly and easily. Further, the Ryan Eyes technology calculates investor allocation percentages, P&L allocations, management fees, incentive fees, and more in order to provide a single seamless investor reporting solution.

The Ryan Eyes Investor Fee Calculator provides fund administrators the ability to generate critical reports easily and instantly to meet investor demands. Further, the calculator can accommodate the change or expansion of investment strategy fund structures, investment scope, and new asset classes effortlessly.
