Joint Private Equity and Hedge Fund Clients Can Now Easily Allocate and Book Expenses
NEW YORK, NY – January 31, 2018: IntegriDATA, a financial technology software company, today announced a new partnership with Sage Intacct, a leader in cloud accounting software, that transforms private equity and hedge fund accounts payable and expense accounting. Now available, the integration between IntegriDATA’s Expense Allocation System (“EAS”) and Sage Intacct lets investment managers seamlessly allocate and book expenses, helping them improve efficiency and ensure regulatory compliance.
“Private equity and hedge fund managers understand the compliance risk and are working to improve how they allocate expenses,” said Dan Noone, IntegriDATA’s head of professional services. “Our partnership with Sage Intacct allows our clients to automatically and instantly book allocation results, helping them save time and avoid SEC penalties.”
Expense allocation is the complex process of allocating shared expenses across management company and funds. The Securities and Exchange Commission began focusing on expense allocation after they discovered investment managers were accidentally misallocating expenses and causing funds to pay more than their fair share. Punitive SEC misallocation actions started to mount and – with an average penalty of $3.7 million – investment managers scrambled for ways to improve their error-prone process.
IntegriDATA developed EAS to automate expense allocation and help investment managers improve efficiency and ensure compliance. Using EAS, investment managers can instantly perform complex allocations that used to take hours without the risk of making costly mistakes. Available from the Sage Intacct Marketplace, the EAS Sage Intacct integration completes the process, seamlessly booking EAS’ allocation results into the Sage Intacct Accounts Payable Module.
IntegriDATA and Sage Intacct hedge fund and private equity customers can now:
- Automate invoice capture, storage, and management.
- Route invoices through custom approval workflows.
- Instantly allocate approved expenses across management company and funds.
- Seamlessly book journal entries into Sage Intacct.
- Communicate results to fund administrators for reimbursement.

The capabilities provided by IntegriDATA and Sage Intacct will enable our joint Private Equity and Hedge Fund customers to more easily eliminate inefficiencies and drive improved results.”
