Case Study: TopQ

Permira implemented TopQ to ensure they were evolving with investors’ data requirements. “We wanted to accommodate the increasing demand from our investors to analyze the track record in a more detailed way. We have always been very transparent in presenting the information, but the shape of what investors want to see is changing. There is a clear desire to be able to flex parameters, which is why we first became interested in products and software that allowed for that level of interrogation, but that were easy to use, credible and auditable.”

When looking for the right solution, it was important that it be flexible. “We wanted a solution that enabled us to provide this more tailored approach to track record analysis, in any way that an investor might want to see, which is also an interesting internal tool. TopQ is probably the first and the only real, clean solution to this problem.”
