Personalized Dashboards: The Finance Team

June 22, 2021

Private Equity and Venture Capital Finance Teams need an investment-focused dashboard to report on all active investment performance and see updates in a recurring, automated way. In the dashboard below, we’ve included some key reporting elements that our clients from leading private market firms use on a daily, weekly, and quarterly basis to update their partners and respond to investor requests.

Key elements of our best-practice Investment Dashboard include:

  • Entity List including the acquisition date, capital invested, realized proceeds, gross MOIC/IRR, and remaining values for all attached deals. Investors often raise capital in multiple rounds of financing and our entity list allows you to see all rounds (entities) associated with a specific company.
  • Single Company Cap Tables show the pre-money, post-money, price / share and value / share for all active deals. The ability to see equity ownership, market capitalization, and market value all in one place allows investors to visualize their equity capital stake in each business as well as streamline shareholder reporting.
  • Key Financials such as revenue, cost of sales, gross profit, net income, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, and enterprise value. Our graphs and charts make it easier to analyze data on a period to period basis or when comparing a set of key financial metrics. With an abundance of formatting options (e.g. conditional formatting) to choose from, visualizing and identifying trends in your data is made easy.  

Cobalt’s Portfolio Monitoring platform gives you the ability to personalize team and user-specific dashboards that are in-sync with the way your firm operates and reports performance. Users can create and customize dashboards on the fly and then easily export to professional, pixel-perfect PDFs that are always partner-ready. Request a demo of Cobalt’s dashboard capabilities today.
