For investors electing to make an investment, Objective continues to monitor the fund and issue an annual analysis that reviews its condition. Moreover, Objective initiates meetings with the fund’s representatives, both prior to the investment and throughout the fund’s life cycle.

Key Tools Used to Prepare an Analysis

Assessment and Analysis Model

The analysis contains many chapters, from Strategy to Risk Management (a structured model used to analyze funds) and addresses all aspects of the fund. In addition, the model differs in terms of the aspects that Objective evaluates based on the type of fund (real estate fund, infrastructure fund, credit fund and others).

Investment Mapping Questionnaire

A detailed questionnaire used to map the investment is delivered to the fund and completed prior to meeting Objective’s team, which allows the team to arrive at the meeting well-prepared. The questionnaire is consistent with all components of the analysis in line with the model.

Content Gathering and Access to the Data Room

Objective’s team receives, on a regular basis, a large amount of content from the fund, which includes, among others, presentations, a due diligence questionnaire (DDQ), limited partnership agreement (LPA), private placement memorandum (PPM), quarterly reports, administrator’s reports, update on current transactions and more.

Meeting with the Funds

The fund’s representatives and Objective’s team meet following a thorough preparation and review of all materials received from the fund. The purpose of the meeting is to become acquainted with those operating the fund. Together with the fund’s representatives, Objective reviews the investment policy, transactions that have already been completed, the involvement in the portfolio’s companies as well as internal documents.

Advisory Committee

Shortly prior to the meeting with the fund’s representatives, the Advisory Committee convenes. The Committee consists of Objective’s CEO, Mr. Boaz Warshavsky, Objective’s Senior Advisor, Mrs. Miri Ben Yehoshua, and an analyst who specializes in the fund’s area of activity. The purpose of the Committee is to process the issues raised at the meeting with the fund’s representatives and make decisions relating to the structure of the analysis. Moreover, the Committee passes follow-up questions along with a request for additional materials relating to the issues that the Committee wishes to further explore.

Extensive Database

Objective employs both local and international information systems to review the market, the fund’s performance, and to conduct a comparison to the sector and industry.

Broad Professional Knowledge and Practical Experience

Each member of Objective’s team has acquired many years of professional experience in a variety of specializations according to the type of fund, with the intention of analyzing different aspects of each fund and provide a wider and more comprehensive service.

Analysis Outline

The analysis structure described below is a permanent format to which Objective adds layers and makes adjustments according to the characteristics of each fund.

General Background

This chapter reviews the fund and its history, the team, key persons and the meaning of the departure of a key person, the organs (investment committees, board of directors), the company's management quality assessment, operational infrastructure and potential conflicts of interest.

Strategy

This chapter explores the area of activity of the fund, the rationale of the investment, the structure of the transaction and the process of executing the transactions, from the selection of the transaction, through the ongoing management to the exit strategy. In addition, the investment portfolio is examined and exposures are analyzed along with the valuation model and relevant restrictions.

Returns Analysis

These risks include, inter alia, business, economic, sectoral and regulatory risks & other risks. Risk moderators and risk levels are evaluated with respect to each risk factor.

Strengths

This chapter sets out the factors unique to the fund’s operations, the basis for the investment viability, the factors distinguishing it from other funds, and the reason this differentiation can allow the investors to have a better understanding of the fund.

Conclusions

Objective does not provide a recommendation on whether to invest in a fund or not.

Analysis throughout the Investment Life Cycle

For those investors who decide to make the investment, Objective will continue to regularly monitor the fund and produce an annual report based on the enhanced pre-investment analysis and changes that actually occurred in the fund compared to planning. The annual report contains, among others, changes in the fund’s structure, a report on investments actually made and their impact on the fund’s return, an update on market changes that occurred during the period, and the realization of risks, if any risks occurred and new risks are added. The annual report allows the investor to obtain a complete and reliable picture and remain updated on his investments.

Alternative Investment Consulting

Assisting Investors in Making Alternative Investment Decisions

Objective provides advice services tailored to the investor’s needs, including attendance at Investment Committee meetings and presentation of opinions, reviews, recommendations and reports.

Objective offers several consulting services in the scope of alternative investments:

  1. Customized Consultation – Objective’s consultation service includes meetings with the investor, analyzing the investor’s alternative investment portfolio, in which an overview is provided, inter alia, of the alternative investment portfolio, along with personally tailored recommendations.

  2. Presentation of Alternative Investment Fund – Objective will provide an overview of a particular analysis, comprehensive explanation and advice on the fund’s suitability to the investor’s needs. Objective’s wide-ranging analysis of the alternative investment will enable the investor to decide whether to include it in the general investment portfolio and to what extent.

  3. Alternative Investment Knowledge-Base – A broad overview of all current funds raising capital in the market, focusing on different categories (hedge funds, real estate funds, infrastructure funds, credit funds and others) according to the investor’s requirements. With this information, the investor can obtain a broad picture of those funds that are relevant to him, and if he is interested, he will initiate an analysis of the fund he wishes to explore. This service enables the investor to make better-reasoned decisions. 

External Operational Control

Investments in Alternative Funds

The internal process of investment operations of alternative funds is carried out manually, as opposed to the tradable investments for which data are recorded in the bank’s systems based on regular reports from the stock exchange. The investor also carries out the operational aspect of the investment, according to instructions and reports provided by the fund’s administrator (e.g., the number of units held by the investor, money at call, holdings value). Some investors do not maintain control of the activities of their Operations Department and their bank as they operate under heavy load and difficulties in maintaining control of all aspects of the investment.

Objective’s controls are secondary controls of the alternative investment activities of the investor Operations Department and the bank. Objective provides a quarterly service of control of the appropriateness of the alternative investment portfolio data, which includes identification of failures & monitoring activities in all aspects: security definition, financial movements, revaluation of assets, returns and management fees and verifying the correctness of the data in the funds’ reports.

Types of Controls:
  1. Monitoring and overseeing the revaluation of the invested funds.
  2. Appropriate controls to ensure that periodic reports and regular updates are complete, accurate and up-to-date, which are used as a basis for revaluation of the investment funds.
Our control services will focus on the following:
  1. Definitions of a Security – verification of correctness of asset classification.
  2. Financial Movements – evaluation of the correctness of execution of financial orders.
  3. Revaluation of Assets – comparison between the actual results of the revaluation and the funds’ statements.
  4. Returns – verification of the calculation of funds returns.
  5. Management Fees – control of management fees in accordance with valid agreements.
 
The control is based on the following data:

Email correspondence, quarterly reports and historical data regarding alternative investment funds from the investment house and the operating bank.
