Real estate and infrastructure solutions to help speed up your deal decisions

Real Estate and Infrastructure Support for Private Equity

Acuity Knowledge Partners is able to support clients on screening, due diligence, deal acquisition and portfolio monitoring.

We help our clients fast-track their investment decisions by assisting them on property and loan screening, transaction and leasing comps, macroeconomic analysis and industry/sector research.

We also conduct due diligence by creating diligence frameworks and conducting research, ensuring faster turnaround on deal decisions (40-50% reduction in time taken to close a deal).

Our bespoke monitoring solutions enable you to track fund performance periodically, conduct strategic reviews and prepare bespoke presentation material for investor reporting. This includes lease abstraction, property and loan tapes, periodic updates of financial models, tracking operational and financial KPIs of investments, valuation templates, maintaining portfolio and sector-specific dashboards, and credit monitoring.
