AllianceBernstein is a leading global investment-management and research firm with approximately $697 billion in assets under management. With over 50 years of investment management expertise, AllianceBernstein provides a wide range of solutions to its clients including equities, fixed income, multi-asset products, and more recently, alternative investments. As the firm’s alternatives business has grown steadily since its launch in 2009, so has the number of LPAs, side letters, and overall private fund documents that the firm must comply with on a global basis.
“Implementing Insight across our alternatives platform enabled us to create a single source of truth across the whole organization. By assigning specific obligations and tasks to the appropriate stakeholders across our firm, we are able to quickly answer complex questions from our investors, drive organizational accountability, and ultimately stay ahead of the growing complexity of private funds documentation.”

Given the rapid growth of its alternatives platform, AllianceBernstein recognized the need to implement a dedicated software solution that would simplify LPA and side letter compliance by allowing multiple functions across the global firm to have visibility into AllianceBernstein’s obligations to its alternatives investors.
