Fundwave has just become snappier. In the latest update, we’ve simplified allocations between investors such that they happen almost instantly, even for a large number of investors.
We achieve this by skipping many scenarios that don’t apply to your fund.
Now automatically calculate interest on a loan or a convertible note to your portfolio companies at a tap of a button. As usual, you can select from multiple financial calendars and there is an option to accrue interest if you prefer.
Forecast Investment IRRs
In addition to scenarios for investor transactions to forecast carried interest, you can now create scenarios with investment cashflows to forecast Investment IRR’s.
Enter an exit valuation and find out which class of shares receives how much value after considering liquidation preferences, participation & caps.
