How Taliance’s Software Solution benefits Ivanhoé Cambridge
Taliance’s software solution supports the modelling demands of the Asset Management teams so as to optimise business efficiency
In May 2016, Ivanhoé Cambridge, a global real estate company, selected Taliance’s revolutionary front office global analytics software for alternatives– GlobalFund – to enhance their direct and indirect asset and portfolio management modelling and forecasting capabilities. The flexibility of Taliance’s software solution will allow Ivanhoé Cambridge to drive its global investment expansion plans by unifying all workflows and reporting processes to achieve operational excellence across all their diverse regional and asset class platforms.
Following an extensive three-month proof of concept phase, it was clear that GlobalFund will provide the different business units with the capability to make more effective decisions by tackling the data aggregation, financial modelling, consolidation and reporting challenges that they faced with spreadsheets. By providing a highly flexible, but secure, central application that fits in with their existing systems, Ivanhoé Cambridge can now unify all data, workflows and reporting processes across the sectors the business invests in, to meet its future requirements of the business.
GlobalFund really sets itself apart by offering a fresh approach when modelling debt, tax and complex waterfall calculations / distributions or understanding the effect of “what if” analysis, instantly, at any level of a structure. Ivanhoé Cambridge will not only have the ability to model and visualise ownership structures over time, in a clever way based on entities and their relationships, but also consolidate data and forecast cash-flows financials and KPI’s across the multi-currency portfolios.
Sylvain Fortier, President, Residential, Hotels and Real Estate Investment Funds, Ivanhoé Cambridge, says: “We were looking for a unified platform that will enable us to better understand and more effectively forecast future returns.”
“We will be making active use of the solution’s integration capabilities to capture standard market data and run ‘what-if’ analytics, portfolio modelling, and scenario simulations. Including waterfall and distribution calculations. This in turn will deliver advanced real-time forecasting in order to reduce risk, increase returns, drive business efficiency and turn market conditions to our advantage,” he adds.
“Above all, we wanted a solution that would deliver flexible access to data on demand, to enable us to develop a comprehensive range of analytics across our investment structures.”
“Ivanhoé Cambridge is a forward-looking organisation and they saw the value of implementing a central solution to cope with all asset classes and sub-classes globally. Taliance’s software solution will allow the teams to perform more structured analysis using reliable data and make decisions faster, which will create a business advantage over its rivals.” Says Guillaume Fiastre, CEO, Taliance.
