Discover how Communica provides value for Start-ups, Mid-sized, Large and Enterprise Investment Managers:
The Start-up/Small Manager
Lets say, that you are just setting up having spun out from the sell-side or another well-established manager. So you and your tight team of colleagues need to know who are you dealing with, which company they work for what you have spoken to or emailed them about and their responses. And most importantly, how much they are interested in investing into your fund. So we keep it that simple by offering you contacts, companies and activity tracking. And since you are as busy as hell and are travelling like crazy, being able to view and update all of your information on your mobile device (iPad, iPhone, Blackberry, Android or Windows Mobile) using the Communica Mobile application could be just the productivity enhancer you need.

Your main Fund is doing well and you are contemplating launching a second Fund, perhaps run by an additional trading team and maybe opening a second office overseas. You are starting to want to cross-sell the new Fund to your current Investors, attract additional Investors perhaps from other regions, and coordinate better between the additional members of your growing team. So in addition to Contacts, Companies and Opportunities you may want to professionalise and automate your email communications and use Communica Tracker to track who is reading which emails so that you can respond appropriately. The new launch is going well and as the volume of communications begins to overwhelm the team, you may also be thinking about creating a secure client extranet from which to deliver to your Clients core fund documentation, saving you time and money and creating instant, transparency for your Investors. So upgrade to Communica Professional and add on the Communica Connect module. All sorted.

By adding Communica’s Fund Flows module you can at a glance see the exact Holdings, Transactions and Liquidity profile of every Investor, for every Share Class or tranche for every Fund or SMA.

The sheer size and complexity of a Manager running multiple $Bn’s of AUM drives system requirements which may not have been envisaged only a few years back.

Yet you know from experience at previous firms that building a “in-house” system can suck up valuable management time and unknown quantities of $. So how do you have your cake and eat too?
