Capital Reserve Forecast Report for Buyout, Venture Capital, and Real Estate Portfolios

  • Delivering top-line capital reserve forecasts which can be incorporated into the capital budgeting process.

*The forecasts are derived using the Maximum Probable Contribution (MPC) methodology for forecasting the probability density function of capital calls arising from both single commitments, or portfolios of commitments.  Read more about the MPC methodology here: Budgeting for Capital Calls: A VaR-Inspired Approach.  Please contact if you are interested  in customized forecasts.
