Former Cogent Partners execs hang own shingle.
The new shop is called LP Analyst, and the official launch announcement is scheduled for early next week. Based in Dallas, it will provide non-discretionary consulting and analysis for limited partners in private equity funds. Stuff like due diligence, portfolio monitoring and portfolio evaluation solutions.
It’s obviously a crowded space, so it sounds like LP Analyst plans to compete on price. Rather than charging on AUM or long-term contracts, it will basically offer services a la carte. It also won’t manage custom accounts or other programs that could present conflicts of interest (a hot button issue in the PE consulting world).
