Introducing Pellucid

A content platform and service for advisory professionals

Pellucid was designed from the ground up for advisory professionals—the millions of people who provide timely, data-driven analysis and expert advice to clients or internal stakeholders to guide and accelerate decision-making.

Pellucid delivers key capabilities these professionals need—content management and fulfillment, sharing of best practices, and exceptional data visualization—in a smart, integrated solution.

Where Pellucid Fits

We help you sell serious ideas

Pellucid is for professionals who sell ideas for a living. This could be selling in the classic sense, or the more general activities of explaining, consulting, and persuading. So, that’s a lot of us.

And here’s the vital piece: by ideas, we mean data-driven insights and advice that require rigorous analytic support and visualization. The kind of things people don’t just take your word for.

Weighty, multifaceted insights that take time to discover and even more time to put into charts, graphs, tables, diagrams, words, and a story. Concepts that will be evaluated, debated, and ultimately decided upon in corner offices, conference rooms, and board meetings. In other words, the fun stuff.

We are focused on industries that live and breathe this kind of work.

Research

Private equity

What's broken

The pitchbook creation process is stuck in the nineties

Having spent decades in the advisory services world, we know first-hand how painful, slow, and expensive it is to create client materials that visualize data and communicate advice for clients or internal executives.

The content is siloed and constantly-changing, yet has to be integrated and 100% accurate. The charts and tables are dense and complex, but have to be crystal clear and perfectly formatted. The information is extensive and varied, but must be woven into a compelling and persuasive story.

Oh, and the meeting is tomorrow.

Countless decisions every day rely on such deliverables, referred to as pitchbooks or simply decks. Why is it that the process to create them hasn’t fundamentally changed in 20 years? It still requires a patchwork of people working in silos, using antiquated software and manual processes.

Some of the highest paid professionals in the world spend hundreds of hours building decks that, with the right resources, could be generated dramatically faster, with higher quality, and without reinventing the wheel.

How Pellucid fixes it

What people are saying

The impact on investment-banking culture has the potential to be groundbreaking… It may indeed have far-reaching consequences in other industries as well.

Because pitchbooks themselves are sales instruments, how they look is paramount… Pellucid makes this process easier for all involved.

Pellucid developed and launched a sophisticated but simple digital pitch-book platform that slashes the time and cost required… That kind of technological advance is something that investment bankers should be happy with, and not fear.

At FinTech Cup, start ups competed to show they were bringing the most innovative and impressive developments to the financial sector… Pellucid was voted the crowd favorite.

Pellucid is fixing one of the most frustrating and time-consuming activities for senior investment bankers (and, by extension, junior bankers): building pitchbooks.

These companies set the standard for workplaces that really value their employees and offer an experience that's fulfilling inside and outside the office.
