ARAG: Enhancing consistency, control and transparency across the private market portfolio


ARAG has been investing in the private market asset classes for an extensive time, leading to a large alternative investment portfolio. The steady growth made administration of cashflow events, setting up a consistent reporting framework, and providing transparency of portfolio companies in the investment funds especially challenging.

To set-up an operational structure suited to the increasing transparency needs, ARAG decided to strengthen selected internal functions (investment team, tax, legal & finance) whilst outsourcing the middle and back office as well as analytics to an expert service provider.


The main goal was to establish a robust operational set-up and procedures, enabling ARAG to continue increasing its investment capacity.
