WASHINGTON, DC — January 28, 2021 — Commercial real estate and private equity investment firm DHS has chosen Alton Partners to support its growing portfolio. DHS is a full-service private equity and advisory firm specializing in commercial real estate asset-based investments across the United States middle market.
“We have always been very good at tracking our data and producing quality reports for our investors, but, with our growth it has simply become a time-consuming chore. Alton Partners will allow us to automate our asset reporting as well as now perform deeper analytics across our fund and asset level data, giving us greater insights as we continue to outperform our competitors,” said Fernando Aguirre, DHS Vice Chairman.
Aguirre said Alton’s data validations will allow their users to now directly access trustworthy data, all in one place, creating efficiencies not previously achievable at DHS. “It gives us a centralized repository of all of our clean data with no more silos enabling us to confidently make data-driven decisions to drive value for 100% of investors,” he said.
Alton is the only all-in-one asset management platform that manages all of a client’s data across the entire asset lifecycle from acquisition to disposition. By aggregating, integrating, and interpreting internal and external disparate data into a single source of truth, Alton provides actionable insights while delivering unparalleled reporting and analytics capabilities.
John Darren, SVP of Global Engagement for Alton, said they will aggregate all of DHS’ Operating Partner native property level data into the Alton platform while also connecting to DHS’ commercial, multifamily and self-storage valuation, underwriting, budget and waterfall Excel models to fully capture all historical and projected data in their ecosystem.
“We are very excited to expand the rapidly growing Alton customer base into the Northwest and are honored to be partnering with such an experienced team of real estate visionaries that know the power of data and how they can continue growing their portfolio with it,” he said. “Having all of their data in one place will allow the DHS transactions, asset management, fund/portfolio, IR, Marketing, and senior leadership teams to do more with their data across the Life of the Asset.”
