A multi-family office quickly scaled its team with Cobalt LP

The Challenge

A multi-family office, new to the private markets, was looking to add a technology resource to assist in researching the private markets and monitoring client portfolios. It was monitoring more than 300 positions across various investor portfolios through Excel and wanted to streamline this process. Given the constraints of a small team, the office was searching for a solution that was user-friendly with minimal implementation and strong support resources. 

The Approach

The Cobalt LP team worked closely with this organization to understand its needs and the ways a technology solution could help. With Cobalt LP, the client could onboard a comprehensive suite solution to solve both its data and portfolio analysis needs in one platform, all without heavy implementation. 

The Outcome

Through dedicated training with various team members, the organization quickly started to leverage the full power of Cobalt LP. Now, it is actively analyzing client data, benchmarking portfolios and running reports for clients. 

An insurance company fits Cobalt LP into an existing technology ecosystem

The Challenge

A large insurance company was looking for a purpose-built solution for private markets to fit within an existing technology ecosystem. They sought to push data into Cobalt LP from an existing reporting system and retrieve analytics, benchmarks and forecasts from Cobalt LP to feed downstream reporting solutions. 

The Approach

The Cobalt LP team worked with this client to access Cobalt LP’s open API, enabling them to write and read data related to their investments into and from Cobalt LP. The client would be able to access Cobalt LP for ad hoc analysis or query-calculated metrics through the API to solve reporting needs. 

The Outcome

The client executed a multi-year contract and cemented a long-term partnership with Cobalt LP, ensuring continuous access to the proprietary insights and analytics and the long-term stability of their technology ecosystem. 
At Cobalt LP, we combine sophisticated private markets technology, an obsessive focus on customer service, and proprietary access to Hamilton Lane's expertise to create a truly differentiated experience for our clients. Our goal is to remove obstacles to data-driven decision making and empower forward thinking limited partners.
