32 LATIN AMERICA NEWS / Issue 3 2017 Brazilian Company To Enhance Services With Software Brazilian firmVinci Partners enhances their investor services with Ipreo’s iLEVEL Platform. Ipreo Private Capital Markets (PCM), the premier provider of portfolio data collection, analysis, valuation, and communications solutions for the private capital industry, announced today that Vinci Partners, a Brazil- based alternative investment platform specializing in asset management, equity management, and financial advisory services, has chosen Ipreo’s iLEVEL platform to help them streamline data collection and deliver new levels of transparency and reporting efficiency to their investors. Vinci is one of the leading Private Equity companies in Brazil, focused on growth equity, control oriented transactions. The focus is in Brazilian companies in sectors with competitive advantage, promising growth rates and in which Vinci Partners’ experience and capacity to execute will drive substantial productivity gains and value creation. “We chose iLEVEL to replace an existing solution, because we wanted to enhance our reports and controls,” said Bruno Zaremba, Head of Private Equity at Vinci Partners. “iLEVEL will be very helpful in increasing the availability and quality of information to our LP community, while at the same time freeing up valuable time for our investment team to focus on driving operational change in our portfolio, which is our core competence.” Vinci Partners was also impressed with iLEVEL’s usability, which makes portfolio data more accessible to everyone in the firm. The firm singled out iLEVEL’s investor reporting as a key capability, because it supports a higher degree of transparency and trust between the firm and its clients. For Vinci Partners, the fact that iLEVEL is recognized as a leading reporting platform among the investor community and that a number of their clients were already using iLEVEL was also a significant advantage. “We are proud to welcome Vinci Partners to the fast-growing community of fund managers in Brazil and across Latin America,” said Melissa Ferraz, Managing Director, Ipreo Private Capital Markets. “Vinci Partners is clearly dedicated to demonstrating the highest levels of investor alignment in their operations, and it is a privilege to be able to support Vinci Partners in delivering exceptional levels of service and transparency to their clients.” iLEVEL streamlines and consolidates portfolio data in the cloud, making it easier for both Limited Partners and General Partners to access, update, analyze, verify, and share it with colleagues, auditors, investment boards, and clients. iLEVEL dramatically reduces the time and effort expended by front and back offices while supporting enhanced levels of integrity, insight, and responsiveness. Headquartered in New York, Ipreo PCM also has offices in Nashville, San Francisco, London, and Hong Kong. Since 2014, the number of clients outside of North America has increased by 400%. ,
