Duration: 45 minutes 


Alternative investments are in transition. LPs are requesting ever-more performance data and better fund transparency, placing a steadily increasing burden on GPs to find more efficient ways of sharing fund data. Add to that the growing demand for Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) information and fulfilling Diversity, Equity and Inclusion mandates – plus adapting to new, post-pandemic ways of conducting due diligence tasks online – and fund management can easily seem, well, unmanageable.

Fortunately, recent initiatives from ILPA have generated some helpful solutions. These new ILPA initiatives make it easier and faster to share information with investors. Recent advances in investor relations platforms have paved the way for better GP-LP communications.

Register today to join us on Tuesday, October 19th for an important update on the challenges of today’s investment landscape and solutions for alternatives professionals. Topics addressed in this conversation will include:

  • LP insights on technology

  • The recent launch of ILPA’s ESG Assessment Framework

  • Updates to the ILPA Due Diligence questionnaire (DDQ) – its most downloaded resource

  • Updates to the ILPA Diversity Metrics Template
