The ID Register: A More Efficient Universal Onboarding Platform

Thu, 13 Jul, 2017

StepStone’s latest research, The ID Register: A More Efficient Universal Onboarding Platform, examines several initiatives that Private Markets have taken to reduce the cost and complexity inherent to the investor onboarding process. Standardization in financial services has been more successful when wide-spread adoption leads to greater efficiency and does not concentrate costs to any one group. More than diffusing costs, the ID Register is a powerful tool that benefits GPs and LPs alike.

– LPs spend less time performing tedious tasks by creating one profile that contains enough information to comply with anti-money laundering and know your client regulations in several jurisdictions, and can be shared with each fund to which the LP subscribes.

– GPs enjoy a simpler sale process and can close each subscription faster.
