Jeffrey Gelfand, Advisor and CFO, joins qashqade advisory board

Jeff Gelfand, the retired Senior Managing Director and former Chief Financial Officer of Centerbridge, a $28 billion private investment firm, is joining qashqade on its advisory board.

Commenting on his appointment, Gelfand said, “For years I have been saying the biggest risk in private equity is the waterfall calculation.  Typically managed in an ancient spreadsheet model and handed down from controller-to-controller… this exercise, if performed incorrectly, can irreparably damage the GP/LP relationship. This is where the qashqade solution comes in.”
Gefland explained, “qashqade has created a scalable waterfall ecosystem, effectively getting your accounting team and administrator out of risky, decentralized spreadsheets and into a controlled, platform solution. The qashqade solution can ‘hit from both sides of the plate.’  The technology can be used by the GP as a higher-quality, replacement waterfall engine with the ability to do proper scenario analyses and investor reporting.  It can also be used by the LP community as a carried interest fee validation tool, consuming all historical cash flows and comparing the results to the GP statements.  I have never seen anything like it during my 20+ years as a Chief Financial Officer in the investment manager world.”

“Jeff complements our advisory board. As a former Chief Financial Officer of a large private equity organization, he knows the challenges of the industry and understands the value our software can add.  Jeff can add immediate value to our firm and strategy, taking qashqade to the next level,” explained CEO and Co-founder, Oliver Freigang.

Product Release 21.0.0

Reporting Tool

The reporting tool allows to produce detailed reports which templates can be created within the application. The templates consist of stacks which determine the granularity of data provided and of columns which contain any data points you need. The data can as well be visualized in many different chart formats. The templates can then be applied to any data set containing one or multiple funds.

Document Generation
The document generator allows to generate notices and statements. The templates for these documents can be configured with uttermost flexibility within the user interfaces of the application. The application provide the possibility to generate and organize personalized texts, data, metrics, statements, charts, pictures on deal, investor or fund level into pdf documents. Reports and generated documents can be stored to an SFTP location of your choosing.

Data Exchange

With our new data exchange module you can connect to multiple other applications and upload data that can be used to support the calculations, reports and documents done in qashqade. The data exchange module allows you to map all data without having to make any changes to your data source. qashqade will take care of the mapping. Therefore qashqade can become your data hub.

After processing the data in qashqade, you can then source the data back into your application landscape. There are specific reporting templates in place for Investran, Allvue and such accounting applications so that the transfer of data is hands-off.

Usability Improvements

And we added some new simplifications:

  • you can now create custom fields to store all your data in one place
  • the ability to run multiple funds and or fund aliases against the same waterfall in just one go
  • more security by allowing you to white- and blacklist IPs the access to your preferred and or most used page by selecting it in your account page
  • the creation of step types right on the step logic creator where you realize that you need a different step type
