The Challenges of Maintaining Your
 Portfolio Reports on Spreadsheets

Maintaining a healthy investment portfolio report using spreadsheets is not an easy task.

Data collection is prone to human error, and being capable of navigating complex fund analytics is only a reality for a handful of Excel experts in every company.

Without layer

It's an impossible task getting portfolio companies to use any complex tools to provide input.

Using additional reporting tools adds extra complexity to the process, making it stressful for both investors and portfolio companies.

With layer

Use spreadsheets as common language.

Manage all of your portfolio data in one place with what your companies are already used to—spreadsheets—no need for additional tools or templates.

Manage Access Down To Cell Level
Without layer

Copy-pasting results in data chaos.

Manually copy-pasting data provided by individual companies into your master report is not only time-consuming but can produce errors that may go undetected.

With layer

Forget carve-outs. Use a single spreadsheet for your data collection processes.

Work directly from your reporting spreadsheet and only share specific tabs or cell ranges with each business.

Then, collect and review input and have it all automatically merged back into your reports.
