Expense Allocation Solution

Indus Valley Partners’ Expense Allocation Solution for private equity and hedge funds is an expense allocation software tool that simplifies the allocation of expenses to funds and management companies, eliminates risks and speeds up invoice processing. IVP’s Expense Allocation Solution offers a smart way to streamline fund allocations by improving accuracy and efficiency through automation, reducing the risk of human errors, and ensuring full regulatory compliance. Expense Allocation Solution automates complex and fund-specific allocation rules so that the in-house teams can process most allocations quickly, and can devote more resources to exception handling.

Expense Allocation Solution also helps asset managers and private equity to track functional expense allocations and accounts payable through customizable and powerful reports. Expense Allocation Solution includes easy-to-set-up invoice approvals along with a detailed audit to track the approvals, rejections and changes, eliminating the need for a separate invoice/expense management software.
